Not sweet, not bitter. Strong ginger taste. Not hoppy. Mildly hot. Overall quite good if you like ginger ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big fan of this beer with a bite. But of course you have to like ginger. When I’m not drinking beer, I drink ginger ale, so this combo works well for me.

Drank from bottle, arinaof ginger and beer, as you would expect. The taste is like ginger and beer, as you would expect. Has a little ginger burn finish, the best part is that it doesn’t taste fake like fruit/chocolate beers can.

sulawang (691) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Visual: Pours clear copper light brown with a dissipating small fizzy head, a very thin ringed retention, several slow-steady singular streams. Nose: real ginger/sushi ginger, light toffee malts. Fragrant. (lvl-8)-pungency Attack: ginger root numbness, light fizzy Mid-palate: thin-bodied, (lvl-3)-sweetness, (MAIN) fresh ginger root, light toffee malt Finish: medium intensifying ginger burn, thin-watery mouthfeel, long dry ginger burn finish. Summary: Good real ginger flavour but that’s about it; no body, depth, texture, or complexity to back it up.

JohnnyJ (4773) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden pour, with a fizzy white head. Strong ginger, fresh and spicy, spritzy, mild grain, and very dry. Burns the nose a little. I like ginger ale and I like this, but not terribly complex.

Bottle into pint glass. Aroma is ginger. Taste is ginger. Not much else to say about this beer. I do not like it. This is a dumper. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

ljthiessen (617) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange-amber pour with a small, foamy off-white head. Aroma is mostly sweet, lots of ginger and a hint of lime. Flavour is less ginger than the aroma, just a minor tingle with a slight gingery flavour, and otherwise resembles a pretty plain pale ale. Comes together OK, but certainly nothing special. Seems like it’s designed to pair well, not to drink alone.

MunBro (684) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
The second worst ginger beer I have ever had. Flat fizzy pour with a very stale ginger taste. Bleh. Phillips is better than this. (Maybe it was stale because it was in a pre packaged 2014 Snowcase calendar, would be willing to retry).

UXO (650) - CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a clear amber copper with a short-lived head diminishing rapidly to nothing and no lacing. Nose is overwhelmingly fresh ginger, with only the merest hint of caramel. Taste follows suit, with low sweetness, and a building spiciness. Medium body and flat carbonation. Not all that interesting. I like a nice spicy ginger beer, and typically don’t like a lot of sweetness, but despite its ticking both those boxes, I’m not all that fussed over this one. The low-lived head and carbonation probably contribute to this impression, and it feels like it would benefit from a little more sweetness.

Rating #816 - December 9, 2013 - Beer 9 of the Phillips Snowcase - 341mL Bottle. 5%. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is real ginger and malty sweetness. Was expecting a fizzy, gingery mess, but this is balanced, crisp mouthfeel, little heavy on natural ginger flavour but not uninviting. One of the better ginger beers out there, but I must say this is not to my taste.
