Silky smooth and a sneaky 8%. Medium carbonation and I love how they use the ginger to keep it dry. Chestnut and oak notes. A simple yet extremely effective effort. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016

Hazy amber color with compact head. The aroma is mild, but the flavor is more potent; the body is lean, would think more in the 7% range, quite food caramel flavor, with a light spicy, peppery note from the ginger, a hint of chocolate, and a light minty touch in the final.
Wisely made, very nice winter warmer.
Thx to x-mom-in-law for the continuation of the demise of my liver. I think actually getting back in shape has fueled my need for beer. Less than half a bottle to knock this wordy pile on its face. OKish aroma, malty, weird lemon lime, mild ginger - more like actually smelling a chunk of it, slightly cracked, in the store pre-peeling. It’s a good mix for the face holes. The flavour is a curiosity thing where it’s not crazy good, not really stand out interesting, but pretty much just a good drinking liquid. Malts in and out beginning to end, lightly spicy that pops in mid sip and rises up to slightly grab the attention and then vanishes, slight candy thing, bit of ginger, bit of the lemonylimeylimony. Pretty much a refreshing beer, zero hint at the 8% that will make me take my clothes off for priests. Just be gentle, Father... Crit (4057) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out pretty pronounced bready malts, with a little of the lime but no ginger. Flavour is more pronounced, with a little ginger, bready malt and a touch of citrus. The adjuncts don’t take centre stage; it’s more of a bready winter warmer. Not very complex or interesting, but it’s decent.

Bottle. Not a ginger fan, but the ginger seemed to be muted on this, which I preferred. It was bitter and earthy, but just a little heavy for me. Meh. poisoneddwarf (2646) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Bomber. Aroma is bready, faint orange candy circus peanuts, sweetbread. Pours clear copper with a medium beige head with good retention; laces a little. Taste is sweet and bready, finishing with a medium bitterness. Tastes a little like caramel corn. I’m not getting any ginger or citrus. I’ve never had a Moscow Mule, so I can’t say how similar this might be, but it seems a little bland with none of the advertised ingredients even hinted at--oh wait, just noticed some faint spicy heat, possibly from the ginger. Overall, not bad, but not terribly interesting. stevoj (5574) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle from Winco. Nice deep copper body with silky, bubbly head. Aroma recalls fresh hop IPAs, taste adds the ginger and citrus elements, which blend nicely with hops for a snappy, spicy flavor. I really liked this, and its not too far removed from the atypical NW IPA. monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2015
A good, not great beer. Basic but a few interesting notes. Pours a nice thick Amber color with a white head. Smells like beer, with a hint of ginger and grapefruit. Taste is basic pale ale with some grapefruit upfront, a hint of ginger in the middle and finish, and some honey and caramel. An easy drinker. Had in the bottle.
