Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden yellow, light and sweet, not overly ginger.

SaintMatty (7518) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2014
500ml Bottle - Amber in colour. Sultanas, biscuity malt and a hint of spice in the aroma. Biscuity malt, spice and dried apricot in the taste. Quite nicely balanced.

zacgillbanks (5495) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale golden coloured with a sweet toffee and gentle warming ginger flavour, fruity notes and a creamy, smooth finish.

Bottle @home, found this lurking at the back of the beer cupboard, quite close to sell by date but in date by 10 days. A little bland i must say, nose was nothing, slight fruit but i had to go looking for it. Taste was the same a slight ginger touch but nothing of really anything. A bit of a disappointment.

gunnar (9687) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle at The Gathering Place, Braemar. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and weak grassy hops. Taste is moderate dry grassy, weak malty body, a dull beer.

Scopey (15649) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. It pours clear pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is sweet pale malt, spice, ginger and leaf. The taste is dough, pithy citrus, spice, ginger and sweet pale malt with a very dry finish. Lightish body and fine carbonation. The ginger isn’t really as punchy as you’d expect with this name. Not much to it....

zimbo (970) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
fizzy, thin pure clear light golden yellow.. Bit too fizzy for me. Light ginger. Mousy small & bit insignificant .

BenH (3434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Golden with white head. Slightly spicy aroma. Taste of caramel, little spice. Little tangy. Ok

cgarvieuk (25983) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
bottle at home ... golden yellow ... thin white lacing ... soft floral .. light hop ... soft zezt ... soft fruit ... barley any ginger ... its way to pealy wally

stravale (3135) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from Tomlinsons Beer Shop, Inverness 081212
Light amber, clear, frothy white head with some lacing
Aroma - light sweet pale malts, faint aroma
Taste - light pale caramel malts, soft cereal malts, very light spicy hops, mellow flavour, delicate hint of honey, indistinct trace of chimerical ginger, soft and undemanding.
Palate - soft carb, light body. Finish as main flavour, smooth soft fairly sweet cereal malt, more flavour in the lingering soft finish
Overall - Soft mellow mellow beer, it’s made for easy drinking. Should be under the Golden Ale category.
