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.

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

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Cloudy, pale amber golden with tiny impurities and an off-white head. Distinct aroma of citrus and ginger. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel and fruit and again distinct flavours of ginger. Drinkable indeed. 180807

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with minimal head. Malt and a surprising amount of ginger on the head. A surprising amount of ginger flavor survived the brewing process but dominated the honey.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden-orange color. There was lots of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Head was thin, white, and didn’t leave any lace behind. Aroma was of biscuity malt and ginger ale. Delicately sweet up front with a distinct ginger bite at the end that lingered. Flavor was reminiscent of ginger ale with a touch of lemon. Interesting, but wouldn’t go out of my way to get more.
