RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
BCA from Beerdock Crewe. Pours with lots of effervescence and a clear copper/amber colour. A little soapiness in the aroma, followed by light yeast and root ginger. The flavour is pretty much dominated by fresh ginger and its done really well. There’s the sharp tang and warmth late on, however, it does tend to overshadow the whisky flavours.

minutemat (4437) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Cask @ Shrewsbury Beer Festival, Nov 14. Pours gold with slight haze. Aroma is strong whisky and restrained ginger. Taste is very boozy, with clear whisky notes and possibly even a little vodka alcohol in there? Ginger is present too but very subtle. Not my thing I have to say.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
On cask at Bulls Head, Burslem. Pours golden ginger, strong whisky notes and kills the ginger. Not to my taste but I’m not a fan of whisky.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Bottled. ABM. 6.1%. Dark murky brown-amber color, good off-white head. Aroma of ginger beer and fermented raisins. Medium-bodied. Ginger, raisins and some alcohol, hints of wood in the flavor. Tickling ginger. Harsh aftertaste. Weird ginger beer indeed.

Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Light palate, minerally crisp and semi dry. Nice ginger, fresh and tasty with just a little heat. Nice mellow whisky offset. There is even a little vanilla wood under the ginger and the minerals. Finishes light and dry. Some ginger heat in the aftertaste. Really quite good!

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours hazy golden with a thin off-white head. The nose is ginger, liquid hand soap, fiery spice, lemonade and perfume. The taste is soap, earth, ginger, lemon, hand-wash, subtle whisky and spicy ginger beer with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Odd, but I don’t actually mind it. Reminiscent of ginger & lemon tea.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Goldwn with white head. Stinks of spicy ginger, slightly herbal. Taste is a full on ginger party, slightly spicy. Brutal.
