Grumbo (3729) - 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.

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.

Aroma of citrusy hops and I supposed ginger? Taste is quite heavy on the sweetness with a spicy gingery finish. Tastes quite good.
