RG.10.05. 7%. green label.
dark red plum color. nose is delicately soft plum sugar, with subtlely spiced ginger and sweet maple/molasses/toffee accents. inspiration experience from the first sip. chewy, resinous, spiced apple, cinnamon and ginger, with high acidity and medium+ bitterness. delicately textured but weighty for 7%. the sugar, acid and hop balance are near perfect. the chewy caramel sweetness could be toned down a little bit, but the lingering spicy bite of ginger in the finish is richly sustained and overall it’s a fun experience. the carbonation is exploding at exactly the right moment for the body of this beer. 4.2

previous rating (3.7) Jan/2010. bottle. unfiltered hazed gold colored body. fresh and green ginger and wheat in the nose, light citrus, light aromatic hops. velvety smooth approach, prickly ginger across the middle and back, citrus acidity in small doses. rich and chewy without being weighty. wonderful beer.

Poured a hazy brown from a bottle with a spooky owl! Not much head. Aroma has lots of ginger and caramel malts. Taste starts off like a usual brown ale with some good caramel malt flavors, and then transitions into a slightly sweet ginger flavor. The flavors are blended pretty well, and the ginger is not overdone. The finish is not too great, it is a little syrupy and leaves a sticky ginger taste. Overall pretty good and unique. I will look for more beers with spooky owls!

CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
(355ml bottle) Pleasantly surprised to see this beer displayed at my local - Cook Street Liquor Store, in Victoria, B.C. for around $3.90. Pours a dark caramel colour beneath a thin, dissipating white head. Nose is nice, set, malty and good ginger base. Somewhat fruity, some raspberry seed flavour before the ginger sharpness takes over. Tangy, sweet and tasty. Nice beer.

3.6
Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle, LCBO. I am a sucker for a good ginger beer and this one did the trick tonight. Surprisingly dark yellow / golden brown pour, small head. Lots of ginger and some sweet malt in aroma. Taste is lots of ginger up front, substantial medium malt, sweet, behind it, and a long ginger finish. This is a solid ginger beer with a surprisingly solid malt backdrop - plus way more alcohol than I was expecting. Not sure you could ask much more from a ginger beer, unless you were looking for a sipper. Nice stiff.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours dark amber in colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is big, sweet malt, with hint of ginger. Highly carbonated.

Smells pretty nice. Spicy, malty. Cloudy orange brown beer. Looks pretty nice. Quite a unique tste. Ginger freshness, hops, moderate bitterness and slightly acidic. Beautiful sparkling palate. Extremely enjoyable and a very nice beer!

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
Pours deep amber with a creamy 1 fingered head. Ginger notes and a nice spiciness greet the nose. Medium body with a nice spice to it, even through the finish. A fun brew for a change.
