I generally cant really get down with beers featuring ginger, but I was pleased at how relatively subtle it was. Some earthy notes and some pepper, well balanced hop and malt action. Grass. Pours light clear orange. Fine, but nothing special.

appearance: lightly hazed medium amber gold, a finger of frothy near-white, yellowish head. aroma: strong ginger on the nose, along with some floral, citrus hops and a slight vegetal note. taste: spicy ginger right up front, with a zingy, earthy, herbal note; theres some citrus, light pine. finish: lingering floral and citrus bitterness, pretty dry, slightly astringent. notes: Nearly very good, but was missing any semblance of a malt base to balance. Give me a little caramel or toffee to even out the ginger spice and bittering hops and this is great.

Definitely refreshing, but the can I got was severely lacking in any ginger aroma or flavor. Theres a big citrus floral aroma but thats pretty much it. I tried to swirl it, let it warm but nothing would release the spicy aroma of ginger for me. It tastes like a decent pale ale. Citrusy, floral, not much malt but that ginger was nowhere to be found. As a pale ale its pretty run of the mill but I think the ginger would have really taken it to a new level. Sadly, mine didnt have any of that said ginger. Not bad but kind of disappointed, I was excited about this one.

Can. OK, I might be jaded on this one, because I HATE ginger as a beer adjunct. But being hopeful, I cracked the top of this one, and like the visuals and the aroma. Then I have to drink it, though, and there it is ... ginger. Ick. (#6432, 11/27/2016)

Foxbush (1922) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2016
12 oz can from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA the ale pours a clear light amber with an off white head and limited lacing. The head quickly dissipated. You detect some ginger and caramel malts on the nose. The taste was more complex with ginger dominating and caramel malts for the backbone. There was some herbal hops completing the experience. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The finish was clean with ginger lingering on the tongue.

Darwenus (1005) - Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Pours only slightly cloudy amber with average foam. I can pick up on the ginger in the aroma, but it isnt overwhelming. Id expected an artificial, maybe even overbearing ginger kind of thing, but it isnt bad at all. Hell, it smells good. It doesnt taste as good. The ginger dominates the flavor front to back, and especially gets too forward on the finish. I wont have it again, but it does smell good.

Draft. Pours hazed gold with a white head. Mild ginger, pale malts, low sweetness, and just a touch of bitterness. Fine.
