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!

Plus za butelkę i ogólnie design. Piana średnia -szybciutko znika. Piwo klarowne. Barwa złota. W aromacie przede wszystkim imbir - bardzo intensywny. Słodycz, trochę karmelu. Piwo pełne. W smaku bardzo słodkie, imbirowe. Ostre - czuć w gardle pieczenie. Troszkę mdłe. Delikatnie czuć alkohol. Słabo pijalne. Goryczka wyczuwalna. Średnio-niskie nagazowanie. Piwo generalnie nie dla mnie, ale doceniam pomysł i wykonanie.

Clear Amber golden color with fast decaying foam. The smell is very gingery. The taste is sweet and spicy hot from the ginger to make it pleasant for everyone, however it loses a bit of its aggressive spiciness. Nice beer for a change, but not a real unexpected experience.

wiedrzensky (309) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 29, 2015
Shared bottle. Pours is light amber with small foamy white head. Aroma of ginger, malts, lemon. Taste is sweet, spicy with a touch of ginger, just a hint of bittery. Medium body, sirupy, sticky texture. Spicy and sweet finish.

BaroneBirra (319) - Gorizia, ITALY - JUL 29, 2015
Smells like a sweet chemichal radler. Too much sweetness also in the taste, with spicy ginger and some pleasant chilly final. Could be a nice cocktail, but absolutely no taste of beer

Pours attractive coppery amber with medium white head that leaves only minor lacing. Aroma is ginger, then more ginger. If you strain, there’s some malt underneath. Taste follows suit, with sweetness, lime, that touch of malt and an attractive fiery ginger finish. Throat burn is just enough, though aftertaste can be artificial/medicinal. This is a very niche product: it’s not very sweet for a ginger beer, but it’s extremely sweet for a beer. That’s almost the only counterpoint to the ginger, since the underlying ale serves mainly as a conduit.

ROSE1962 (89) - POLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Barwa bursztynowa, piana biała, szybko opada i znika. W aromacie głównie czuć imbir, nuty słodowe. W smaku goryczki praktycznie żadnej nie ma, głównie imbir, bardzo bardzo słodkie. Na finiszu w przełyky występuje uczucie pieczenia.

InPivoVeritas (404) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Pours hazy copper with no head. Aroma resembles some cheap "holiday aroma" soap out of some cheap motel. Cloying sweetness with zero bitterness and some spiciness. Easily the worst beer I had this year.

Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Clear pale amber, small head. Sugary ginger aroma. Super sweet with medium body and sticky mouthfeel. Syrup, ginger and sugar. Like sticky mouthfeel.
