beeebon (180) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Received a bottle as a gift recently. This is a golden beer with virtually no head/. Smell is hay, grass, malt and slight ginger. The taste surprised me in that there’s quite a bit to it considering it is such a weak alcohol beer. Mild sweet malt and surprisingly hoppy with a mild ginger burn. Finishes a little dry and crisp. Surprisingly decent bitter and one I may well buy in future!

wimpyjoe (3879) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Its orange cap is a suitable colour for the golden amber appearance and small ginger notes that give it a slight spiciness. It is by no means overbearing and quite pleasant, probably due to a weaker body. It has no head but a very sweet aroma.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JAN 22, 2013
Great golden red colour. Some head. Flavour is great, some high notes of honey, some warmth of ginger, and some refreshing hops and dry bitter ending.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2012
500ml Bottle. Aroma is of malt, ginger, a hint of honey and citrus. Appearance wise this is a honey coloured ale with the usual inconsistant SKinners head. Taste wise it is a real ale flavoured with ginger, rather than a alcoholic ginger beer - and that is a very good thing. It is a medium bodied beer with a malty start moving through some mild spices to ginger and a slightly bitter finish.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2012
A cloudy golden amber colour, carbonation visible and has a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and syrupy with a hint of honey. Has a taste of honey and malt very refreshing.

worldbeertaste (1636) - AUSTRIA - JUN 2, 2012
Copper orange with a soapy quick dissapearing white soapy head. Smell of malt, citrus, ginger and honey. Definatly natural sweet. Medium biscuit smooth oily body. Sweet ginger toffee start with a biscuit. Light toast to the malt. Some honey sweetness mixed with a hop bitter finish. Interesting but neighter sweet, sour or bittter. Strange mix.

ALLOVATE (2407) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2012
Tried this back in August ’11.
Bright orange gold with a big, lasting, creamy white pad atop. Guava, peach and apricot sliced on top of cereal grains with a dash of sticky pale honey is the aroma, much like a healthy breakfast. Not much honey evident in the mouth, good fruit, spicy and woody along the tongue with a herbal earthy backend. Light bodied and creamy in mouthfeel with a dry earthy hop flower finish. The fruit esters keeps it fresh, tangy, mildly citric on the palate. Quaffable stuff, nice and light on. (50cL, BB 08/08/12, Tesco, Exmouth, Devon)

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Clear golden with a frothy white head. High to medium carbonation. Fresh hop aroma. Very refreshing beer. Crisp texture. Slight ginger aftertaste. Thin on flavour yet very pleasant to drink.
