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.

If you like ginger, buy this beer. Pours a dark golden. Aromas are all ginger. But you can tell they used the good stuff. I like this beer. And I think you have to like ginger to appreciate a beer like this. Very warm and tingly with persisting warmth. Fresh ginger everywhere. I wouldn’t buy a lot of this.. But it’s a nice change of pace.. As most novelty beers are.

Ah, ginger beers, the perverted uncle of the beer world. This one is not the worst, the ginger is not as ridiculous as some of the other ones, but I just don’t like this style...at all.

Not sweet, not bitter. Strong ginger taste. Not hoppy. Mildly hot. Overall quite good if you like ginger

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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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).
