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!

Hmm, the nose is a bit worryingly halfway between an ale and a ginger beer. Pours a clear burnished copper with no lasting head of any deScription. The taste - not for me. Imagine a pretty insipid, unremarkable ale ... now dump a load of sugar and a bit of fiery ginger in it. That’s what this is. If that’s your thing, then fine, but, again, not for me.

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 (780) - 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 (648) - 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.

Kita (1594) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Pours clear deep amber with medium creamy off white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of pungent ginger and grapefruit. Taste starts with sweet toffee malt, but gets immediately overpowered by strong ginger with spicy mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Highest possible rating I can give, because I hate ginger...

Zakup z lidla piwa z wysp. Przyznam się, że spodziewałem się po tym piwie czegoś więcej, ale oceny tutejszych userów niestety sprawdziły się w 100%. Piany w zasadzie brak, barwa ciemna słomka, klarowne. Bardzo słodkie, goryczki praktycznie w ogóle nie ma, jedynie delikatne pieczenie imbiru w przełyku, raczej nieprzyjemne. Bardzo słabe. Uwielbiam wyspiarskie piwa ale to jest fatalne.

The aroma is full of ginger and some metallic notes are detected along with some pilsner malts. The color is caramelish. The taste is sweet and full of ginger. There is almost no carbonization, has nothing much to do with beer. Quite disappointing.

mingos (63) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Golden, completely clear, with a one finger white head that dissipates after a minute. Aroma is very powerful ginger. No other notes can be detected underneath it. The taste is sweet and also resembling fresh ginger. Very spicy, creates a long lasting, unpleasant, numbing sensation of burning in the throat, similar to vodka. Medium body, high carbonation, no detectable bitterness. I’ve had this beer twice and both times it turned out undrinkable. As much as I like ginger, its concentration in this beer makes it simply unpleasant.
