COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ingredients: Water; Malted barley; Ginger root; Hops; Yeast.
Our beer is basically a pale ale brewed from a relative low gravity, with some of the hops which would normally be used in the beer replaced by freshly ground ginger root. The beer is light in body, lower in alcohol, has a distinct ginger aroma, and has a very crisp finish. It was initially brewed as a refreshing alternative to the plethora of wheat beers which are popular in the summertime. Popular demand turned it into a year round beer.

On tap at Max & Joe’s Left Hand tasting party. Pours a corn-golden maize color with a thin white head. Strong ginger aroma, but also has some sweetness like cotton candy in the scent. The flavor has a chemical-like burning bitterness that does not seem to come from the hops. The Bluetongue ginger beer of Australia is better.

Rob blonde voilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche mince qui persiste. Arômes âcres d’épices et de malt. Saveurs de malt, d’épices et de gingembre.

Gingery, spicy aroma. Lightly metallic. Pours clear orange with bubbles. Light head. Very spicy quality of cardamom, cinnamon, and other spices of the like. Ginger of course. Moderate mouth feel. The description is spot on with this being a good alternative to wheat beers.

From an old Cellar’s tasting note sheet. Pleasing ginger nose, much stronger than I expected. Lagery body with the faintest hint of ginger.

luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Sampled at the 5th Annual Wildland Firefighters Benefit & Festival. Beer is clear, light, bright golden orange with a small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing head.<P>
First impression on the nose is a whallop of ground ginger. Aroma is malty with a light note of toasted grain, caramel, biscuit; Hoppy with a light note of herb (which supports the ginger well); Yeasty with a trace of sweat; Moderate-to-heavy note of herbal ginger, light note of buttery diacetyl an a trace of honey.<P>
The flavor is lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a longer-than-average, lightly bitter, trace acidic finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.<P>
Ginger is omnipresent, yet somehow flat and 1-D. Not bad, but not a real tail-wagger.

Bottle. Not bad, not great. Tasted like an average pale ale with some ginger in the nose and the taste. I’d drink it again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Poured into a tulip. not a bad beer at all, pours a flat clear amber yellow, just not a great beer. reminds me in appearance, aroma, and taste of ginger ale with alchohol. just a flat ginger ale. not much head at all, some bubble action. you notice the ginger definitly. Not bad, not great, a good session beer.

This beer purs a light golden color with a small white head. The smell is ginger??? How about that. I tasted fruit and ginger. I can take this taste with Chinese food...not with beer.

vyvvy (6778) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours clear golden with a good sized off-white head. The aroma has a lot of ginger and some light fruits - quite nice as I’m partial to ginger. Medium / thin body that starts crisp, then smooth and then finishes crisp. The taste starts with milder ginger than on the aroma and some clean pale malt. The finish has more ginger and some spicy hops with a bit of sourness. A decent beer.
