Back off it’s Ginger Beard, he’s a fiery character and his beer is no different. This amber ale is infused with fiery root ginger to deliver a spicy finish with a bit of bite. Try it if you dare!

You will either love it or hate it, there’s no middle ground here. It’s not so much a beer as it’s a ginger based beverage. So, it all boils down to a simple question - do you love ginger or not? Personally, I love it. This drink is just awesome. Spicy and hot. Yes, really - as you drink it, you’ll feel a tingling, spicy sensation on both your lips and tongue. It’s highly advised to drink this one ice cold, that way the chill will put out the fires, so to speak. A truly wonderful combo. Give this one a try.

very interesting beer. Very sweet aroma and taste. Spicy ginger and sweet aftertaste. Not a typical beer and a bit to sweet for my taste. A must try.

UXO (1130) - CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Appearance: clear pale gold with a short, short-lived white head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: sugary ginger, some undifferentiated fruit. (4/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high spice, low bitter. (4/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, spicy and sticky cloying finish. (2/5) On the up side, lots of, yes, fiery ginger. On the down side, lots of sugar too. Ends up being a bit of a sticky and cloying mess. Meh. (8/20)

Solid ginger/copper/gold color with medium creamy foam. Aromas of ginger, tea, malty and sweet. Palate, light body with sugary sticky texture with ginger spicy finish. Taste of ginger of course and beer? Sweet I would say also. Overall, Simple beer but diferent in its own way that it tastes of ginger, quite nice to try and it was as I expected.

Złote, lekko zamglone. Piana kremowa, drobna, obfita. W aromacie trochę pikantne, ziołowe. W smaku wyraźnie piekące, słodkie. Trochę ulepkowate. Przypomina posłodzonego radlera. Słabe to piwo.

Pours almost clear amber color, topped with a thin white head, not really lasting. Aroma is not bad, spicy ginger feel with some fruitiness. Taste is sweet and heavily ginger-like, but not in a good way. Slightly peppery finish and a tad spicy. Too sweet and gingery, really. Not enjoyable at all.

Bottle 0.5 Красив бутылка, пиво хорошо пенится, но выгляди& как-то неестес& аромате чувству& имбирь. Если не знать, что это пиво - не догадае& При первом глотке кажется освежаю& Но потом плюешьс& от сладост& Вообще пиво недалек& ушло от имбирно& напитка "Каждый день", если честно. Только один плюс - есть интерес& жжение в горле в послевк&

Eye: pour an orange color with a medium thick dissipating and regular bubbled white head and strong carbonation. Nose: ginger (bread, cookies), cider like Mouth: honey, ginger, smooth texture Palate: ginger bread, nuts, (elder) sirup, berries, apricot (tart), very sweet overall Overall: very smooth and refreshing. good for the summer (that’s sort of what I imaging to be a butter bear from the Potter books)

CanCrusher (817) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle 0,50L, bought in a local supermarket. Clear, copper color with small, frothy, white head. Aroma of ginger, orange, apple, spices. Taste starts pretty innocent, light sweet and fruity, but soon become spicy, peppery and hot. This is the part I don’t like. And after a while it becomes even more hot. Ok to try, but not my cup of coffee.

mauroruellas (734) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - OCT 11, 2015
Dourada escura,límpida,translucida,espuma com média formação e baixa duração;no aroma o gengibre já é sentido,acompanhada de notas cítricas e terrosas;sabor adocicado,com raiz aparecendo no final dando um final picante e anestesiante,corpo médio/baixo,refrescante. Cerveja "diferente",certamente fara sucesso com os que gostam de gengibre o que é o meu caso,vale a pena a experiência.
