2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Pours a copper brown with no head. Aroma of fresh gingerbread. Tastes the same. A little syrupy, somewhat like a thick ginger pop. Not cloying, but not really to my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
[on tap at the Alibi room]
Malty pickled ginger aroma that is sweet. Clear dark straw under a lasting white cover and ring. Sweet and peppery flavour that has some bitter, malty, ginger. Sort of weak with a touch of citrus. Light body, high carbonation, nice ginger finish that ends clean.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery. Rating #6 of the beer. Pours a bright copper color with a trim off-white head. Mild with ginger in the aroma, but grows in flavor. Odd -- almost like licking bamboo on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy golden, strong white head. Deep ginger nose. Light fresh pleasant ginger profile, light bitterness. Ginger is almost too much and medicinal. Not a bad attempt!

Tap at Steamworks. Pale amber beer. Thin white head. Aroma is quite spicy and gingery with just a touch of lemon. There is a nice spicy gingery flavour with a bit of soft pale malt. Light brown sugar sweetness. It’s pretty nice really. Palate is a bit light.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy amber. Fresh ginger aroma with little nuance or subtlety. The flavour is also quite gingery, with notes of caramelly, earthy malt. The finish is refreshing, at least until the earthy, toasty malts cut back in.
