Bottle. Muddy brown beer with a strong and smooth brown head. The aroma is mildly ginger with a malty element, and the flavour is sweetly gingery with a malty finish. Overall a nice ginger ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Juks (33) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2017
330ml bottle. Hazy dark amber, thich golden-beige head. Very sweet ginger, malt, caramel candy, gingerbeard, light smokiness, some alcohol in aroma. Taste is very malty, ginger is not as strong as expected from aroma, alcohol and some spiciness in aftertaste. Full bodied, quite alcoholy, low carbonated. Belgian strong ale with ginger.

Hoponmate (295) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2017
Sweet ginger smell. Color is a light amber. Sweet thick alcahol rolling the beer around the tongue gives that ginger kick but the seet finish takes that all away.

Pours a very cloudy caramel color with with a short-lived off-white head. Very malty nose with faint ginger note. A lot of caramel in the flavor. Nice, faint snap of ginger.

Nice fruity aroma with tick foam, testes of chocolate and citrus, and its pretty good, the ginger in the title has no presence at all

Rdbrun farge med lys beige skum som ras kt faller. Blir liggende ett tynt lag. Lukter fruktig og krydret. Fyldig og oljete i munnflelse. Smaker karamell, krydder. Ikke verst l dette.

Quick3Beers (1058) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Pours a rich brown with a tinge of red from a bottle, thick white head that stays for quite a while. Aroma is a treacly ginger, flavor is similar with a fair amount of citrus. A little cloying. Okay beer.
