This unique beer is extremely refreshing on its own, but pairs very well with all types of food from spicy to heavy. Ginger lager starts with a pilsner base and then we add oodles of fresh ginger and dried ginger, along with a ton of fresh citrus. Crisp and effervescent, this beer will cleanse your palate and refresh you on even the hottest of summer days.

Emeister84 (2170) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Aromas of ginger and wild flowers. Clear, pale orange, with a mostly lasting, white head. Sweet and earthy with some medicinal flavors, and a low bitterness. Light body, low carbonation, and an off-dry, gingery finish. Pretty good in smaller portions.

Cybercat (5171) - Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Taps clear straw yellow with a thin and not lasting eggshell head. Fresh ginger dominates the aroma but lets fresh malt share the stage. More malt comes out in the gingery flavor. Body is fairly firm, though fizz is lacking. Get your ginger on.

On tap at the source. On of the better ginger beers. Conceals the alcohol well.

On tap @ Wild Wolf / Nellysford VA --- Clear light amber color, with a light rim head, no lace. Taste, and aroma, are assertive ginger backed by light malt. Meek hops arrive in a finish that is long on ginger. Pretty much a one-trick brew, not quite up to balance and the light body this needs.

Tap. Pours clear yellow/gold with fizzy white head. Aroma is ginger, pale malts, and some lager yeast esters. Flavor is dry malts, ginger, faint hops, and lager yeast fruity esters. Light body and medium carbonation.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2014
7/19/2014. Sampled at the brewery. Golden yellow with a white head. Spicy ginger aromas right off the bat. Malt, grain and grassy notes. It actually works quite well. Very refreshing.

bubbleflubber (2167) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours golden into the glass, with a thin ring of suds that diminish down the pour. The nose is of ginger spice. Flavors are of a lighter blonde ale, lemon, grain and pils malts, finishing with a ginger spiciness. The medium body and smooth palate make for a nice food pairing with different meal styles.

obguthr (5717) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Ginger nose. Clear golden, medium head. Intense ginger and daffodil flavor within a lemoon base, the two really not very compatible. Unpleasantly Bitter and perfumey. Odd for any beer, downright bad in a lager and this comes from a guy that likes west coast hopped pilsners.
