COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle @ home. Confession: I "bought this for my girlfriend" but really it was for me. Light straw pour with a fizzy, short lived white head. Smells of candied ginger and apple juice...pretty much what you’d expect. Hints of pear and citrus. Flavor is on the sweet side with a strong apple character and more candy than ginger. Still, a half decent spiciness of ginger. Slightly woody and herbal.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2012
12n ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin frothy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of sweet apples and faint ginger. The taste is strong ginger with a grainy apple finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle - free tasting at Bert’s Better Beers in Hooksett, NH. Very pale yellow pour. Nice ginger element to balance out the tart apple. Cool beverage.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pour out of bottle at Art and Ale, clear orange with white head, aroma brought notes of garbage and baby diaper, I kid you not, some slight ginger, apple comes in but its very odd and not appealing. Taste is much better, some nice snappy ginger with hints of apple and caramel, finishing fairly sweet.

Draft. Pours light and clear almost, with no head. Ginger, juicy apples, appropriate sweetness, and medium carbonation. Works well.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2012
6/22/12. 12oz bottle. Super clear light goldenish pour... verrrrrry light color, with no head at all and no lacing. The aroma is sweet apple juice and a bit of yeast all the way, with a certain herbal bite that eventually shows itself as ginger. The flavor is sweet apple juice with a definite almost Asian ginger bite. Not spicy by any means, but it’s definitely there on top of the yeast and an almost bubblegum aspect. Meh.

PorterPounder (5593) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Market - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling light golden pour, initial white bubbly head, nice bubble action. Aroma of fresh cut golden delicious slices with a hint of the kind of ginger you get with your sushi. Flavor has some nice clean apple notes, Granny Smith comes to mind with an enticing underlying presence of ginger and basil. Crisp mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Bottle. Light blond pour with a short, fading, fizzy white head. Aroma is apple juice with ginger notes. Sweet aroma, overall. Taste is ginger, candied apple, apple juice and ginger ale notes.
