Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Aroma of ginger, pepper and grassy hops. Flavor - well, it’s just a light ale with a touch of ginger in the finish. Kind of disappointing after the nice aroma. light body.

Bottle from Beer52. Golden-amber, no head, prickly fizz. Smells of ginger powder and plastic. Tastes better than it smells- more dry ginger powder, a little lemon. Sweetish, maybe a little watery and lager-y though. Grew on me as I drank more, but maybe not enough.

a little on the weaker side - watery body. Fruit and ginger on the nose and especially the flavor where there’s not a whole lot else going on. OK.

Lots of ginger on nose and on the tongue. A nice spice beer. Clean crisp and very herbal.

Frisch vom Hahn im Hopfenreich. Es ist wirklich gingerbetont. Ansonsten wenig aufregend.

Deep golden bordering on amber. Huge ginger on the nose with some faint sweet bready caramel maltiness underneath. Very herbal and a bit distracting imho. Reminds me of a cough drop, not a fan.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 This was poured into a nonic.
The appearance was a glossy to hazy burnt off orange to bent amber color. Some transparency. Light carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Filmy little bit of a white head.
The smell had the spicy ginger root up front. Sly little bit of citrus hops. Nicely "carrying" sweet caramel to toffee malt backing up to rye aroma nicely.
The flavor takes all of the aromas to blend at a nice pace. Rides all together on into the aftertaste and a semi-quick finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Fairly decent sessionability about it.
Overall, as a "ginger" beer, I see nothing wrong with it. Me, I’d definitely come back to this. Great stuff

Dark Amber thin rimming white head; aroma is ginger sine sweet malty notes ; flava is ginger with malt graininess; feels light slight fizz; finishes dry malty with notes of ginger throughout.

Draught at DC Gotanda. Very light ginger notes, minimal sweet malt base, fairly watery on the palate... Unnecessary import really...

Bottle. Pours a beautiful looking translucent bronze color with a small white head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma features dried ginger, as opposed to fresh ginger, and there is a touch of musty earthiness. The taste featured the same dried ginger as detected in the nose, and there is a touch of cooked vegetables. The malt base was thin and weak, The finish short and dry. Overall: meh
