3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Pale, slightly unclear yellow/golden body with moderate sized off-white head. Aroma is totally dominated by ginger. Flavor is sweet with lots of ginger, not room for much more here. I really like the flavor of ginger, but this is simply to one-dimensional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 bottle. Gold, slightly hazy color with a small, off-white head. Aroma is dominated by ginger, seems fresh and spicy, very much like the marinated one used when eating sushi; not much besides that, a little hint of floral notes. Taste is saturated with ginger as well, other than that it is slightly malty with typical hay flavors. Medium body, oily texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is long and exactly like the taste with the exception of a delicate bitterness appearing towards the end. Overall the beer is really unusual, seems very much as if one was eating marinated ginger; it even leaves a spicy, cleansing sensation in one’s mouth. It does require some balancing in my opinion.

From a bottle at a friend’s. The taste is strongly gingery so that most of the other features stay hidden.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium white head. Clear amber body. Spicy fresh ginger aroma
with vague fruity notes. Dry spicy gingery taste with soapy
notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly hot mouthfeel. Dryish spicy
gingery aftertaste with papery cardamom notes. The basic flavour
is really, really close to shop-bought ginger freshly sliced.
Nice, drinkable, perhaps a little bit lacking in complexity, but
the ginger flavour is well preserved. (0.5l bottle, from Toft

Cask at Paisley Beer Festival on 12/9/13 as ’Ginger Pale Ale’. Ginger very much to the front in this, spicy.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lys brun med minimalt med skum. Lukter godt ingefær og noe sitrus. Smaker ingefær, men irriterende doven, ingen kullsyre.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from BeerBods. Hit of citrus then the ginger follows. A very light and refreshing drink - tastes like it would be equally wanted on a summer’s evening and with a spicy curry in the middle of winter. Very different from Pale Ales I’ve had and that’s a good thing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l. from a supermarket, 20130719) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma was like the one of ginger ale: ginger and sugary sweetness. Palate was medium bodied and bit stingy with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, ginger, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had ginger and bitter. Not my style of beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle - Pours a light golden hue with a rather small head. No retention or lace. Aromas of orange, mild ginger, and other spices. Taste is citrus, mild zest with notes of ginger. Light caramel, and hints of bread. Light in body, sort of watery to be honest. Not bad, and quite refreshing.
