Back off itís Ginger Beard, heís 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. Thatís what this is. If thatís your thing, then fine, but, again, not for me.

From Hipercor. In Ikeaís pint glass. After dinner. Lots of ginger and very zesty. Close to go to the sink but managed to resist until finishing it. Gives thirst.

mikkopen (1037) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2016
500 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin white head. Sweetish aroma of ginger, notes of fruits. The flavour is honey-sweet, with a nice bite of ginger, and berry notes. A little too sweet to my taste, but otherwise not bad if you like ginger.

MartyW (103) - DENMARK - APR 17, 2016
Bottle, pours clear golden color, smell of spices and ginger. Taste is strong and highly sweet ginger. The ginger is overpowering and leaves the malt and citrus too much in the background. Too sweet and too much ginger.
