A Belgian style amber with ginger added. It is a malty and fruity beer with hints of ginger in the nose and in the flavor. Low in bitterness, dominated by the malt and flavors of the yeast. Brewed exclusively for the Ginger Man restaurant group in NYC and Connecticut.

64oz growler at the DC Local tasting. Pours a totally transparent cream soda color with zero head. Big ginger aroma, sugar, smells like ginger ale with some herbs. Flavor is big on Belgian sugars, yeast, ginger, herbs. Medium bodied with a clean finish. I thought Id hate this and then I liked it.

Growler courtesy of Andy at DC local tasting - thanks! Orange. Aroma of ginger root coated with dirt. Taste is, unsurprisingly, ginger, but more on the smooth side, and not overbearing. Tasty enough.

Draft at the Ginger Man in NYC.

Thin, slightly sweet. Plenty of ginger but aggressively so; the beer is drinkable but more a novelty than something Id drink regularly on purpose.

750ml from Bellport Beer. I figured this was going to be a loser, as I am not a fan of ginger. Turns out I was wrong. The ginger taste & smell were noticable, but gentle. Nice and malty, excellent, almost buttery taste & mouthfeel. Nothing crazy here, but something Ill go back for seconds.

Growler filled at Daves Bellport Cold Beer & Soda and consumed the next day. Pours a slightly hazed burnished gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left spotty lace. Very pleasant aroma that is very malty along with some noticeable ginger. The flavor is equally enjoyable with a solid dose of malt followed by a wash of ginger. There is an ever-so-slight sour presence as well. No bitterness to speak of. Enjoyable.

On tap at the Ginger Man. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head. Crisp ginger, light wheat. Slowly developing and subtle ginger reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Nice wheat note. Medium bodied, clean. Finishes with more tingly ginger. Refreshing.

Draught at Ginger Man, NYC
Hazy deep blond color. Herbal and soapy aroma. Dry mouthfeel, poor flavor, some herbs, lemongrass, grass, soap, dirty water. Low bitterness. Bad.

In short: A straightforward ginger flavoured beer.
How: Tap at Ginger man, New-York
The look: Clear golden body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Aroma is very much like a gingerbread man. Taste is unsurprisingly focussed on ginger although less intensely than the aroma lead me to believe. And the ginger taste actually works here. This beer really tastes like fresh ginger. Some biscuits malts, a little caramel, no hop presence to speak of. Carbonation is smooth. Everything about this beer is discreet except for the ginger. Probably the beer that tastes the most like fresh ginger that Ive ever had. Well done but not really my thing, a few of my friends however ordered more than one pint. Captain Lawrence made a beer of the Ginger Man Ale and it really tastes like ginger. Good job. Such a good job in fact that I hope they dont make a house-brew for the Oyster Bar one mile away.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2009
On tap at the Ginger Man - NYC. Pours a slightly hazed pale amber-orange-golden, with a nice lick of clean white head. Aroma throws off a mix of cooked and fresh ginger that reminds me of good chinese food. Flavor is less interesting. A thin, tinny weak ginger and belgian yeast. Some spiced astringency and a flaccid yeast character. Sticky and undercarbonated. Unexciting.
