This is an interesting beer to say the least. I found it appealing when I poured and smelled it. Spicy, and plenty of ginger aroma. It was spicy on the palate and I quickly found it a difficult beer to power through. If the ginger was toned down it would have been alright. I think a small glass of it would have been enough for my liking. The label was cool.

Bomber from BC Liquor Store on Hastings, Vancouver, BC. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight white head. Woooh! The ginger aroma is strong and pleasing. Med body. The flavor is lightly burning ginger. Love ginger. So many people are afraid to put in a good amount of ginger. Phillips is brave indeed. Maybe it needs a bit more malt, but maybe not. It is ginger. Wish I had some sushi and wasabi to measure this stuff against/with. Any ginger beer lover should be pleased with this.

650 ml bottle poured. Clean golden pour with a consistent fizz head. No mystery on the main extra ingrediant here. Massive ginger, with a spicy kick. Flavor is an exact match, but a little spicier. A bit soapy, ginger, semi floral. I like the spice to this. Adds to the fun. I think I want some sushi now.

650 ml bottle poured at Lars house in red deer. Pours amber with. Very little head. Smells strongly of ginger. Taste is the same with a slight bitter finish. Decent beer if youíre looking for something flavoured.

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 wouldnít buy a lot of this.. But itís 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 donít like this style...at all.

Big fan of this beer with a bite. But of course you have to like ginger. When Iím 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 doesnít taste fake like fruit/chocolate beers can.

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 thatís about it; no body, depth, texture, or complexity to back it up.
