sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, - NOV 19, 2012
Poured a clear reddish brown with a small, disappearing frothy tan head. Aroma of strong ginger. Slightly weak body, flavour of understated ginger and a mildly dry finish.

Grumbo (3753) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2017
Bottle at the Spread Eagle, Ipswich. Pours dark amber with a good sized frothy off-white head. Aroma of mild ginger, light spice, toffee and syrup. Medium plus sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Subtle ginger finish but with a little fire to it.

3.4
Nurmis (778) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2017
0,33l bottle. Pours amber with small white head. Ginger is more mild than most ginger ales I have tasted, but in a good way. Its more "rounder" and less tangy. Spices and caramel malt going on too, could not taste the alcohol. Not into ginger ales, but this beer was good.

DanDan_ (82) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2017
Was expecting a light ale with a ginger blast but got a amber beer with loads of malty sweetness, some bitter taste, and very subtle ginger if you look for it. Not the refreshing beer I expected, but still enjoyed it.

rotaman14 (678) - Wiesbaden, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2017
Aroma of citrusy hops and I supposed ginger? Taste is quite heavy on the sweetness with a spicy gingery finish. Tastes quite good.

2.6
SaintMatty (7476) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2017
330ml Bottle - Dark amber with small head. Strong aroma of ginger but some nuts can be detected too. Spicy, earthy and moderately sweet taste with ginger standing out along with notes of caramel and sultanas.

2.5
YantarCoast (1474) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 26, 2017
330ml bottle from Pinta's in Moscow. Pours hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is ginger, sweet malts, spices. Taste is medium sweet, ginger, syrup, malt.

3.1
Scipio (1177) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2017
Pours a light brown with a thin off white head. Ginger jumps out in the aroma, with earthy malt, caramel, spices, and light floral hops are also found. The taste is bitter and quite sweet, and its a candyish sweet at that. Still very heavy in ginger, the floral impressions are rather pronounced in here as well. Underneath we get a slight cinnamon, mild spice, caramel, and cereal. Not very surprisingly, ginger dominates the aftertaste. Medium bodied, thicker in texture, and average in carbonation. To much sugar and ginger. I wasn’t impressed.

3.4
thellgren (1109) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki (tasted May 19, 2017). Appearance is brown, cloud and with a nice head. Taste is full of ginger, but it is not very spicy. There is enough malt base to balance everything.

3.9
caribou43 (1151) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - APR 30, 2017
I bought this beer at beer of the world in Zurich. I drank relax at home in Lausanne. I think that it is a good beer for the style, with different aromas. The body is brown/orange, the carbonation is a bit higher than usual, thin and white head. The taste has different phases, at some moment you get more ginger or more caramel, you smell at the final the alcool but it is ok, touch of hop but hidden by the ginger like the malt, interesting beer my bottle had a limit until october 2017.

3.8
andrepintado (3608) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - APR 9, 2017
bottle from estucerveza. Appearance is light cloudy, orange, brown. Thin white head. Medium bitterness. Medium body. Aroma and flavour is malt, hops, fruit, spices, ginger, chili. Because the ginger is very soft, I’m loving it.
