COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ginger in the Rye is a deep, golden color that has a strong ginger aroma. The zing of fresh ginger mixes well with the pepper spice that comes from the copious amounts of rye.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2009
It is hazy, orange-brown-golden with a huge, creamy and very lasting head. The aroma has notes of fresh cut ginger and a little malt. The flavour has a lot of fresh ginger, but also a little malt, yeast and in the finish there is a little citrussy bitterness together with the peppery ginger. It is rather sharp, raw and edgy, and you have to love ginger a lot to fully appreciate it.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Tasting @ argo0’s place. 750ml bottle, #105 of 1104. Lightly hazed gold with a huge yellowy head. Well carbonated, lots of drippy lace. Caramel and floral nose, light ginger. Tasty caramel and ginger, rye notes. A mild warmth in the throat - hard to say if it’s alcohol or the ginger. Interesting stuff.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2008
750ml from a trade on BA. Thanks to a generous trader. Big bodied pour, with a head that was difficult to control. Translucent, amber, with some soft golden hues around the edge and some crystal clear carbonation. The nose was very ripe, with the weizen yeast coming across strongly and the rye somewhat sharp as well. The ginger was not as prominent in the nose as I had expected. The taste was slightly problematic, with the balanced characteristics of the beer being overrun a bit by the sharp, at times harsh presence of the ginger. I like some bite in my beer, but this was a bit too astringent.

Hansen (6878) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2008
Amber coloured and clear. Aroma is perfumed, ginger, too much ginger makes it a bit unpleasent. Flavor is sweet.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2008
750ml bottle via trade with alexsdad, shared with my girlfriend Cyn who got very excited about the name. I love ginger and rye so why not. Pours a beautifal gold with a big frothy head that leaves a lot of lacing as it falls. Nose has notes of ginger, rye, lemon and slight maltiness. Taste is interesting and overall pretty funky &#40;in an non sour way&#41;. Lots of ginger though subdued over a big rye beer. This is drinkable interesting and has a lot of nice qualities.
