1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ginger in colour with a thin lacy white head. Very strong ginger smell with a vinigar element. Tastes like a ginger ale soda with a stronger ginger finish. The finish is very frothy and chewey. I like it but its a bit bland.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with no lasting head. Aroma is citrusy and sharp ginger. Fizzy mouthfeel. Citric and sharp ginger flavoured, subdued sweetness. Light bite in the citrusy flavoured finish. I just don’t like ginger.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 25cl. It pours a clear pale golden beer with a small head. Perfumy nose. Hot taste! Spicy with quite a lot of jasmin accompanied by ginger and elderflower. Light bodied. Very low bitterness. Not much carbonation. Easy drinkable. Some jasmin in the finish which is mainly of ginger. This beer delivers quite a burn in the back of the throat.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & gregclow - courtesy of blankboy. Very light yellow pour, small thin white head. Strong ginger aroma - fresh root - some honey as well. Thin mouthfeel. Strong ginger in taste, and it is very sweet too - a very unique tasting ginger beer. Refreshing. Spice shelf like! And lemon! Not to bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Pale yellow colour with no head. Aroma of ginger, honey, and harsh, chemical-like alcohol - really strange for such a light beer. Body is crisp and sharp. Lots of ginger in the flavour and not much else. Aside from that weird bit in the aroma, I actually kinda enjoyed this, but I’m a sucker for ginger, so I can see how a lot of folks wouldn’t dig it as much as me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev. Pours a clear flat yellow with a spare white head. Aroma is mostly ginger with a touch of honey and candy. The first thing you notice in the flavour is that it doesn’t taste like beer and the predominence of ginger but that’s exactly what a Ginger Beer should taste like so one can hardly fault it for that. I personally love ginger and thought that it tasted pretty good hence my higher rating. I hope more ginger fans rate it as it doesn’t deserve such a low average in my opinion.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 Bottle (330ml) - Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Poured a slightly hazy pale yellow with minimal head. Aroma - whoa! - ginger, obviously, and sugary honey-sweet malt , floral cheap perfume, and alcohol, but not the good kind of alcohol, this was more like sniffing aerosol lysol. Yuck. Taste was still sweet ginger, with lemon oil, a bit of wheat and perfume. Mouthfeel was very sharp and spicy, not at all like any beer I’ve ever had. Weird.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Headless pale golden yellow body. “Holy crap what is that?” initial aroma leads to ginger, lemon cleanser, touch of varnish and Lysol as Harry pegged. Flavour is dilute ginger with a bit of lemon, ginger ale like. Grew on me a bit after initial shock. Thin watery palate.<P>
It’s not healthy or medicinal in any way – It’s just Swiss. - Tupalev
