Bomber shared thanks to Jimmy. Appearance: finger khaki head, amber red color, clear. Aroma: ginger super heavy, caramel, cinnamon. Palate: light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, dry finish. Taste: sweet malty into ginger and cinnamon, finish is weak and underdone for heavy ginger. Overall, poor balance, so much ginger needs a better finish.

Clear dark red gold pour dense head. Aroma of malt, ginger, citrus, corriander-like spice. tastes like ginger, ketchup, some macro gross hops on the finish. Hard carb watery and sweet. Skip it.

Bottle. Pours a darker amber color with a smallish tan head on it. Nose is heavily ginger laden, to the point that it overwhelms anything else in there. Taste is a little sweet, and also overwhelmed by the ginger flavor. Not a fan of this...

651 ml. bottle. Per the label Nugget hops were changed to Saaz and the Laughing Budda is gone. Pours a medium well retained ivory head, with some lacing over a clear dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is light cereal, ginger, citrus peel....taste is citrus with lemon and orange tones, light cereal, ginger, minimal bitterness, dry throughout, with light ginger tingle on the finish....mouth feel light, carbonation low with minimal acid. This is a, not unpleasant, ginger dominated beer. They walked the line between a light amber beer and ginger ale very nicely. It is simple in both aroma and flavor. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Bottle @ home, picked up at Aggie Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a fairly clear dark orange appearance with a tan head. Jesus, the aroma is heavy ginger along with a bit of citrus and floral notes. Decent body. A touch sweet, potpourri, ginger, lemon, lavender flavor. I don’t really like ginger beers but I guess this one is ok.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bomber from Whole Foods. Clear, orange-gold pour with a short white head which fades quickly to a thin rim. Nose is a lot of ginger and spices, with some sweet caramel malt. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Ginger, caramel, a bit of orange zest and something like nutmeg - maybe the galanga, which can be earthy-spicy or lightly spicy, depending on how and when it’s used. Fairly refreshing, but not something I’d have every day.

Gription79 (2311) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The aroma is spicy ginger, orange, hint of citrus. The flavor is more pleasant then aroma, lemony ginger, very strong ginger, dry finish. Meh.

lupulicious (30) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2011
22. Lightly sweet palate, medium head that recedes in the glass Minimal lace, light carbonation, light hop flavor. Perfect ABV to carry the flavor along. Excellently rendered ginger flavors in this beer: it has the warmth, fruitiness, and peppery kick of a good fresh knob of ginger. Fruity ginger aroma. Delicious with spicy Asian foods.
