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 you’re 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 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.

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.

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.

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
