Too heavy a beer with not enough ginger. I wanted something reasonably light and refreshing with nice spiciness and mostly got the opposite. A disappointment given my general appreciation of this brewery. It was palatable at least.

I didnt really like this. It has an almost roasted malt taste almost like what you would get with a mild stout followed by a sweetish ginger taste mid-palate. It is no doubt a unique and well-crafted beer it just does nothing for me.

330 ml bottle from Sobeys. Pours a viscous muddy orange with small persistent head. Aroma is of boreal leaf-litter, kumquats and vague floral hops. Taste very malty, nice but not aggressive ginger bite, guayaba/guava paste. Full bodied, slightly gritty, again like quava paste. A pleasant surprise. I usually walk past labels like this, thanks to wifey for bringing me one!

Pour is an orange-brown, cloudy, with a small white ring of head. smell is exactly a ginger cookie, its fucking bomb as fuck. Taste is a ginger cookie, caramel, and maybe some mild malt and oatmeal. Lasting bitter ginger essence. Nyce

Echon (478) - rhus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2016
Dark red and medium-bodied. Good ginger aroma and flavour, but without any bite. Apparently boiling the ginger makes it less spicy. Moderately sweet taste, with little bitterness. Overall, one of the best ginger beers I have had, but it would not hurt if they retained some of the bite.

Belle japonaise qui ne sent quun peu le gingembre. Belle robe rose orange quasi sans mousse. Une belle dcouverte !

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 Aus der Flasche getrunken (vom Hndler des Vertrauens). Rotkupfern mit stabilem Schaum. Sofort steigt Ingwergeruch in die Nase. Im Geschmack interessante Kombination aus Ingwer und Hopfenfruchtigkeit. Leider kommt spter Lakritzegeschmack hinzu.
