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.

MartyW (23) - 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.

MikeBeermaster (191) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 3, 2016
W aromacie nasuwają nam się nuty przyprawowo-korzenne z uwzględnieniem kendyzowanego imbiru i cynamonu. Piwo barwy złotej, lekko zamglone, piana średniopęcherzykowa. W smaku piwo jest bardzo mydlane i gryzące w przełyk. Kandyzowany imbir wręcz pali, a cukierkowość bardzo mdli. Trudno było oprůżnić 500ml.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2016 Clear golden color, average sized white head. Aroma of ginger, citrus. Taste is sweet, hot, lots of ginger, sugar, malt, citrus. Not bad but is it really a beer?
