Private Reserve Ginger combines a crisp apple cider with sharp ginger and citrus undertones. This perfect balance in taste pairs excellently with chicken, spicy stir-fry, and fruit salad.

Nose is rather medicinal. Mouth feel is denser than most ciders. Higher alcohol is not noticeable. Nice blend of two old-time traditions, ginger beer and cider. Substantial and refreshing. Iím not one to have cider with ice, but this one has enough flavor and body to stand up to that.

unclemattie (4282) - Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Short, 12oz bottle. Bright yellow label. Very fizzy, thin white ring, Aroma of bubblegum, some apples, and fresh ginger. Clear, light yellow color. Mild sweetness, semi-dry. Little ginger flavor at first, just light apple. Finishes with a peppery ginger tingle. I expected a lot more ginger character, although it is there. (3425)

On hand at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear colorless with a sharp note of dry apples and ginger. Taste was the same with a nice balanced apple tone with an exotic ginger backbone. Very pleasant.

Pours pale yellow with a few white bubbles. Aroma is apples and ginger. Flavor is sweet apples, a little tartness, and a pretty good dose of ginger.

The aroma is sweet and has a tiny bit of ginger but as I have learned a little ginger goes a looooong way. The appearance is clear with a yellow hue and no head. The taste is like the aroma with not as much bite as ginger usually has. The palate is refreshing. I was looking to taste a little ginger and this one doesnít bite back. ;)

Smells like gingerale (soda), taste is mild cider bite and sweet with ginger hints, though really could have used a little bit more ginger bite.

Bottle - free tasting at Bertís Better Beers in Hooksett, NH. Very pale yellow pour. Nice ginger element to balance out the tart apple. Cool beverage.
