1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear, very pale body with a small, fizzy, white, short-lived head. This looks more like a soft drink than a beer. It smells like a soft drink as well, the aroma is strong, sweet and crisp with soapy ginger and nothing more. Once in the mouth I’m convinced that this is in fact a soft drink, it’s very sugary sweet with no other flavours than sweet sugary ginger. It’s sirupy with a lively carbonation, some ginger dryness in the late aftertaste. Please remove this "beer" from Ratebeer.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 11 months before BB date, from ICA Ullevål, Oslo]

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Note to self, do not drink again. Smells and tastes of ginger. Pale yellow. Pretty boring, pretty unpalatable. God I must have been pissed when I bought this...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,33L bottle. Pours clear golden with white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet and ginger. Pours clear golden with small white head, doesn’t stay. Taste is very sweet, ginger; it feels artificial. Overall: as far as beers go, this just isn’t a beer. As far as just random drinks go, if you like ginger, you won’t mind this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gulbrun farge med hvitt tynt skum. Lukter søtt og mye ingefær. Smaker veldig søtt. Søtere enn dette kan det vel neppe bli. Sødmen fester seg i munnen. Som det gjør når du spiser melisglasur.medium med kullsyre.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear light orange-hued golden body with a fizzy white head which disappears swiftly. Nose is ginger, syrup, mild pale malts and hints of citrus. Taste is sweet ginger tones, soda-pop-ish syrupy hints of and faint citric tones. Light, near-watery body, fizzy carbonation. Pretty OK as a soda pop alternative I guess, but this seems far from a real beer of any kind. I guess this listing could disappear at any time.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Clear golden color with a fine frothy white head. Some lacing.
Aroma: Fruity and ginger.
Palate: Medium body. A bit sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity, some spices and ginger.
Overall impression: They managed to get a lot of ginger in the flavor. So for those who like it…...for me a little bit to sweet. It could otherwise be a nice thirst quencher in the summer sun.
Personal stats: Bottle from Meny Begby in Fredrikstad, Norway
