Honey and ginger aroma with some type of adjunct coming through. Flavor is strong honey up front with some lemon fading to slight ginger and more adjunct and a little lingering lemon flavor. Clear light gold pour with a small white head and some sediment. Body is thin and watery.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(thx 2 Rick) 13 month old bottle - "Muddy pale amber, brief head, lots of sediment. Light ginger aroma. Fairly sweet with rounded, oily mouthfeel. Besides the ginger and honey there is not a whole lot going on. Finishes with low bitterness and a slight ginger taste."

Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with tons of sediment. Very little lacing. Did enjoy this, the Ginger was not overpowering. This is not something I would venture out to find again.

Given that this was an attempt at a historical brew, I have to be a bit liberal in my scoring. I generally thought this was overly bitter. There was not enough sweetness added by the honey to make a good ginger ale (and I’m not talking about the sweet swill that most grocery stores make). It just seemed unbalanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from BevMo, consumed fresh just after release in 2006. Pours slightly hazed golden orange with a creamy off white head that leaves thick layers of lace. Not surprisingly this has a strong aroma of ginger with hone evident as well and some lightly bready maltiness. Flavor also dominated by ginger, but very sweet with honey and toasty malts, tart lemon, acidic and floral notes as well. Medium body, gentle carbonation. Another interesting offering from SA in this series. I seem to have liked them better than most people - maybe I could have survived in the early days of the country. Wait, no Ratebeer then? Guess I wouldn’t want to try afterall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange gold color - ALOT of sediment. The carbonation is high and the ginger is not too forward. Expected more ginger

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Off notes from 10/06. Pours a cloudy gold with a lot of large chunks of sediment floating around. Nose is strong like perfumed hand soap. No kidding. That was the first thing I thought - hand soap. Taste is very odd. Effervescent on the mouth with a tangy sweetness. Leaves a honey residue on the tongue. Mouthfeel is good, but not enough to save this one. Might be interesting to tryk but not to keep around.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Honey in color, very cloudy with HUGE chunks of sediment... and I mean HUGE!   Head is moderate and fizzy, dies quickly,
spotty lacing.   Strong ginger nose, some honey for sure, but also a touch of soap.   Likely because of the ginger.   Whoa,
loads of ginger on the tongue.   Not spicy, but quite prominant.   Honey flavors on the backside.   Maybe even a bit of melon,
honeysuckle to be exact.   Not a bad little beer, different, and certainly spiced.   Underlying beer is light, or should I say not
much else about this one other than the ginger.   Moderate to thin body and mouthfeel.   Heh, this doesn’t even seem like beer.
Lingering watered down ginger flavors.   Meh, not bad.   Certainly more entertaining than some of these other "Authentic
