Hazy golden color. The aroma is a bit herbal (sage and rosemary). The mouthfeel is dry, with the flavor of decent Pale Ale, a moderate touch of ginger plus some herbs; in the final the bitterness is correct and mingles with the ginger spicyness. Although not my favorite style, it has been brewed with grace and will match many dishes.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
Amber with a slight haze. Very overt ginger on the nose like what youíd see with a Jamaican ginger soda. Strong ginger taste. Underlying malt is nothing special - normal amber ale stuff - but itís enough to tell you that itís not a soda. That wonít be for everyone but I like ginger beer (soda), so I like this too.

lcbo bottle. Pours thickish medium yellow. Big spicy ginger, and thatís it. Medium mouthfeel. Decent drinkability. Not something worth more than a glass.

Amber-gold pour with a thin white head. The aroma is quite fresh and gingery. A little bit of soft sweetness and a bit of gingery heat as well. I get a little whiff of vegetal character as well as bit of soft spice. There is a little bit of lingering bitterness in here as well. Itís a decent enough brew - the ginger comes through more in the nose than on the palate, but itís okay.

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
2013-01-13. Crisp bright orange body, modest beige head. 3+ strong aroma of ginger in the aroma has an almost soapy undertone to it. 6+ Flavour has a ton of fresh ginger character not unlike pickled ginger from the sushi bar at times. Light alcohol and bitterness, ginger builds and grabs at the throat a bit. Average plus palate. Not bad, but the ginger is pretty intense, so you better like it! Bottle from the LCBO

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011
My bottle just says "Ginger Beer", but Iím pretty sure itís the same brew. Pours a clear honey gold with a thick, lasting white head-- not soda-ish at all, very "beer looking". Aroma is intensely spicy fresh ginger, slightly pungent/earthy. Flavour is all about fresh ginger, slightly soapy, with prickly heat in the finish. Medium bodied, nice pale malt structure. A great ginger beer.

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Sampled at Brewery Creek, pours golden yellow. Intense ginger on the nose with a slight hop bite. Flavour is essentially like taking a bite of pure ginger. Maybe the best example of this Iíve had, though still not overly my thing.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Bomber from the LCBO. Hazy gold with a smallish fizzy white head. Aroma is .... ginger, maybe some buckwheat honey. Taste is ... ginger; burning, sharp, fresh, sinus-clearing ginger. The body is probably just average, but itís so stingingly carbonated itís hard to tell - has a long, crisp palate-tingling gingery finish. I am buying more.
