Bottle at home ... golden amber ... small white head ... soft odd fruit nose that i need to assume is ginseng... again an odd flavour thats very simelar to the nose .. its kind of smokey but not... soft fruits ... just wierd but not unpleasant ... almost a poor quality sherry element to it, gets less plesent as i get further in

bottle at home. quite odd stuff indeed. i really don’t think a ginseng beer was a good idea. awfully unballanced and badly composed flavoures. but it does what it says on the label. it tastes of ginseng....

Drank at Wing Yip, Purley Way - not a fan. Sweet, overpoweringly and cloying ginseng. Uncomplimentary flavours.

Got this for 50p in a chinese super market. Aroma is seriously ginger and some sort of floural spice which i assume is the ginseng. Taste is similar, very carbonated, but it suits the beer. I really like ginger so this is a good deal to me, also i think it might be slightly bottle conditioned as mine was a bit cloudy.

starshine (1) - Ashford, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2005 does not count
A bit more gingery than ginseng but a very nice beer. I wish I could get this in Ashford instead of having to go to Wing Yip in Croydon to find it!

Papsoe (25051) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Pilsener golden with a small head. Fresh, gingery nose and very marked flavours of ginger and perhaps also ginseng (not sure I recall the flavour of ginseng....) But very refreshing and mild, pretty much without bitterness. 140701

imdownthepub (18063) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale yellow beer, no head, boiled herb flavour. Ginseng is used to reduce stress and improve energy, actually a better beer would do this adequately.

Bov (14987) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 7, 2003
very pale yellow colour, head disapperas in 1.2 seconds, perfumy, herb aroma, smooth with an after-shave aftertaste

2.1
rauchbier (4134) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2003
Bottled. Hazy straw colour, no head and high condition. Not knowing what ginseng smells or tastes like, I couldn’t spot it beneath the ginger that dominates this beer. Very one dimensional with aggressive condition.
