Draft - Lots of raw ginger and some spice. Clear gold with a thin beige head. Raw ginger, light sweetness and some spice. Not bad for a ginger beer.

On tap at Northwest, pours a clear bronze with a tiny head. Aroma brings out ginger upfront, not much else. Flavour is gingery upfront - like pure raw ginger with a touch of sweetness. Delivers on its promise. Decent.

Amber, bright, big ginger nose, sweet, light ginger character, simple, like ginger beer.

12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear copper body that supports a weak dirty white head. The aroma offers up a load of ginger and flowery floral hops that run right up against Macy’s perfume counter stank. The taste is similar with flowery perfumy ginger that gets a little candied ginger to midway. For the upside this has some flavor to sweetness balance but ginger AND hugely floral? There’s nothing wrong with the but no thanks.

HIGHB4LL (751) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2014
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.
