RATINGS: 855   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.85/5   IBU: 20   EST. CALORIES: 135   ABV: 4.5%
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.

I really wanted this beer to be good. It tastes slightly malty sweet with barely a noticeable hint of ginger. If it didn't say ginger on the label I would not have noticed it. Beer is also almost flat. Perhaps I received an old bottle? The only good thing to say about the beer is that it is rather refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty light, which actually makes the ginger accessible and tasty. Aromas of spice and ginger. Light and beery, biscuit and ginger. Thin, watery finish, though.

12 ounce can at home . Big white, fluffy head. No lace on glass. Golden in color. Smell the ginger, somewhat smell like lemon also. Taste the ginger. Pretty smooth with no after bite. Pretty unique brew. Pretty good beer.

12 oz bottle from Beer52.com. An amber pour with a fast fading white head; beery ginger aroma; an immediate ginger hit in the mouth, but much softer than expected; then a warming root ginger prickle, leading to a rather thin finish. Clean, refreshing and well balanced. Much better than most ginger beers.

Bottle - Pours medium amber with thin head. Aroma of fermented breads and ginger. The flavors are same, but additionally floral notes, definitely ginger... with a dry hops finish.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear light amber with tiny sparkle, 1/2 finger width fizzy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is strong ginger over mildly malty base. Taste is as aroma--cant really make out too much other than the ginger. Palate is light bodied with lively carbonation and ginger finish. Overall, a straightforward experience. No nuance but if you want an alcoholic subtler version of a ginger ale, this is for you.

Pours copper with a thin head. Aroma is full of ginger. The flavour is far too sweet but some nice ginger notes in it. Not a good beer tbh.
