A traditional style ginger beer, made with a malt base, lashings of fresh ginger root, a touch of organic cane sugar, lemon juice & yeast… that’s it. Our ginger has a distinctly ’beery’ taste without the bitterness of hops. Creating a refreshing, malty spiced brew.

Sample at SBWF 2013. Lots of ginger on the nose. Same with the taste. Probably works well with thai food.

Obier (47) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2013
Starkes Ingwer Aroma. Wenig Schaum. Bernsteinfarben. Ingwer dominiert hier ganz klar, wer es mag wird das Bier toll finden! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerhammaren (1682) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2013
.5l bottle @Vihreä Haltiatar Pours clear pale golden with low head. Aroma is ginger, citrus and lemon soda. Flavor is ginger, citrus soda. Stingy palate and waterish. Quite nice IF soda. A bit blah as a beer.

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Dorée claire, quasi pas d’effervescence ni de mousse. Trop de gingembre tue le gingembre! Un achat fait par erreur à un prix exorbitant, vu la qualité du breuvage!

dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle. Straw coloured with a quickly thinning white head. Smells, surprisingly enough, like ginger beer. In the taste, I’m pleasantly surprised. I’m not a fan of ginger beer, but this is light and breezy with a touch of lemon, sweetness and a teeny ginger burn on the tongue. Sweet like pop with a touch of beery malt. I’m never going to be a massive fan of this - but at least it’s not massively unpleasant.

Mein erstes Gingee-Bier und ich es war positiv überrascht. Leider kaum Schaum, aber dafür ein intensiver,leicht schädlicher Ingwer-Geschmack. Kein Hopfen schmeckbar, dafür gute Zitrunoten.

Bottle from the Blue blazer clear golden ale with pure ginger aroma flavour is a fairly bland base beer spiced up with loads of ginger hints of cinnamon and lemon also present makes a generally quite refreshing drink that is slightly sweet and has a lovely ginger afterburn

50 cl bottle @ Atala, BBE 01/2014
Aroma is quite light with cinnamon and some ginger. Flavour is quite refreshing with ginger, cinnamon and some citrus. Nice burning ginger afterwards. A bit straightforward and thin but nice anyway.
