3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - fresh sample 3 weeks from racking. Pours a hazed golden ale in th class with a tight-pored white cap that lasts. Ginger is pervasive in the nose, some light grain tones. Peppery mouth feel. Flavour has a nice dose of pale malts in front with good balance fron sharp resinous hopping, ginger plays a complimentary roll for the hops, dry clean bittering fininh. Good thirst buster but not a real ginger beer( cane sugar, aged ginger, lemon and Fermented with a SCOBY) - this is a pale ale flavoured with real ginger, Still a good summer quaff.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Light copper pour. Aroma is ginger and ginger. Dominates the palate as well and lends the spiciness. I fucking hate ginger. My rating shouldnít count, but Iím adding it anyway.

If you like ginger... Pours hazy orange. Smells like the ginger you get with sushi. Taste like the ginger you get with sushi. Little hoppy forward, then embrace the ginger. Finish a bit bitter and lingering. A good novelty beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is really heavy on the ginger, and itís not like candied ginger or ginger essence, itís full-on fresh grated ginger root. So raw and intense that it has me a bit scared. The flavor is crazy big on the ginger as well. It/s like chewing on a ginger root. I can taste maybe a hint of sweet caramel malt, but itís pretty faint. Man, you have to be a really hard core fan of ginger to get into this one. The finish is spicy and hot with minimal sweetness to mitigate the ginger. Light to medium bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation and a long lingering finish. Not feeling good about finishing a whole 22oz bottle of this bad boy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear tan color. Ginger and hops fight for the aroma but ginger wins out. A quick hop start that hands the flavor over to a fragrant ginger taste. The ginger stains the palate and leave a light burn behind.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Raw ginger, a bit earthy and a tiny sweetness. Clear gold with a thin head. Tastes of raw ginger, a bit of heat but falls flat after that. There is nothing to balance this or distinguish. It doesnít even taste like a ginger beer pop. Although if you donít like sweet fizzy ginger drinks this may be good for you.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[5058-20130112] 650mL bottle. Spicy soapy ginger aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Peppercorn ginger spiced malt grain flavour has a surprising hot-bitter finish. Medium body is bitter and very peppery. Interesting, pretty intensely ginger thoughout but has a nice bitter base. (7/3/7-/3/12) 3.2

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden colour whit a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is pretty much sweet ginger. Flavour is a good kick of ginger that really dominates without letting much else through except a mild sweetness thatís quickly taken over from the spiciness. Not an unpleasant ginger presence though thatís all that seems to be there.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Ginger flavoured beer, not ginger beer. Tastes like beer plus ginger. Pours cloudy amber with a thin head. Smells like ginger, light bodied. Poor show.
