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.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2007
THOUGHTS: Sounded very interesting, but reminded me of a less flavorful pumpkin or holiday ale. I just felt that the pale ale style wasn’t complex enough for the ginger to work well with. It wasn’t that it was bad, just not as good as I was expecting. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark yellow with nice carbonation and a small, sudsy, white head that mostly lasted. There wasn’t much head there, but it didn’t go away quick. The aroma was mostly ginger. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, while the finsh was moderately sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter and sour with an average duration. The flavor was mostly ginger but there was also amlost a little lemony too with just a little hop bitterness. The light to medium body was I guess gingery with fizzy carbonation with a slighlty metallic finish.

Aroma of soap and some mild ginger. Tastes like flowery soap water and metallic lager yeast.

12 oz can. Pours a copper color with light head. Aromas of ginger candy. Flavors of watery beer and ginger. Ginger beef as stated. Good juju - I don’t know...

appearance: clear gold, quickly fading white head. aroma: yup, ginger with some cracker, pepper, and lemon. taste: as the aroma indicates. finish: clean and gingery, medium palate. notes: Not bad. Not completely one dimensional, with some nice heat coming through in that ginger note.

On tap at Old Chicago. Water with a slight taste of ginger. For the first time, Left Hand disappoints

Pour from a 12oz bottle pours clear with an amber color with a solid white head that lasts. Ginger and vanilla nose. Malty mild sweetness. Light body average carbonation. Very aqueous.

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.

I got a case for 12.99 so considering that it was all right. Had a lot of trouble drinking a few in a row.

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.
