Cloudy amber pour. Aroma holds sweet malt, ginger, and citric sweetness. Flavor is unimpressive, with more sweet ginger and spice. Palate is light. Mediocre stuff. thorine (37) - Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2010
From bottle: Hazy, light amber. Sweet aroma of spices and (of course) ginger. Taste: some ginger at front, lingers somewhat, giving way to a grain flavor. Moderate hop character. Somewhat spicy finish. Not as impressed as I was with some of the other Hitachino Nest brews. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle from the LCBO- SLightly hazed orange, with a nice frothy white cap. Nose is super spicy with loads of ginger, caramel malts, floral spices. Tastes like ginger, and lots of it. Sweet, slightly fruity, like apricot, with some pineapple. A bit of clove towards the end. Medium bodied, a bit heavy and syrupy for mass consumption, but I’m generally pleased with this. gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2010
Hazy orange pour with a nice thinly bubbled head. Nice scent very appealing and welcoming. Sweet and gingery. Unique taste. Not what I expected. The ginger is not nearly as overpowering as I expected. Reminds me of a fruit beer or a wheat. Really easy to drink. Little to no aftertaste. Really can’t taste the strongness either. garthicus (2962) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 4, 2010
Appearance: cloudy copper with a small white head, kind of hazy. Aroma: lots of ginger! Yes, I love Ginger! Kind of like a Ginger chew, a small amount of floral notes in there too. Flavour: Delicious Ginger, yum, tangy and sweet, rises up the back of the palate & tingles the back of the nose & throat. Lots of caramel, spicy, tangy, almost orange tones. I love it!!!!

330ml bottle Diogène (1214) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2010
I tried this beer on July 19, 2010 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent copper with a golden-tan head that did not last. The aroma was sweet malt, caramel, floral hops and ginger. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. The flavour was sweet malt, caramel and ginger. Too sweet for me.
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy caramel with a medium foamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, ginger, malt and spices. Flavor is Ginger, caramel, brown sugar, malt, soap, herbal notes and a moderate bitter finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. GInger is predominent.

Bottle - 330ml. Hazy amber body with a fair off-white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with ginger and fruity (melon, grapefruit) hints. Good hoppy taste which carries malty, ginger, brown sugar, and woody notes. It ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2010
330ml Bottle: Comes as "Real Ginger Brew", but I assume it to be the same as this one here. Pours a dark amber brown, reasonably thick slightly off-white head. Extremely sweet aroma of ginger, molasses and brown sugar. Smooth sipping, like silk, albeit cloyingly sweet while doing so. Great ginger flavour is prominent, an almost lactose quality surrounding it, pine and molasses. This is pretty good for what it promises to be - real ginger ale. Good work. jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2010
From a bottle poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Nice spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.
