12 oz bottle shared at Lost Abbey release. Now see, I can drink this even though many people didn’t like it. I think I really like the Spice Herb Style beers. Spicy ginger aromas with the honey making a serious appearance in the flavor. Pretty tasty. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2008
This was a decent beer, but man it was ugly. Lots of gloppy mess with yeast sediment and what I thought were ginger pieces. It has a strong ginger aroma with a taste like slightly fizzy ginger tea. Sweet in flavor and finish. Lots of sweet ginger. Respectable beer. Sandman2222 (42) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Ginger, honey, and lemon, a real nice tasting brew. Really well balanced, especially for being nearly 2 years out of date. Unfortunately out of production as it was a limited edition. BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - APR 22, 2008
This was just too much for me to handle. This had an aroma of lemon balm tea, slightly like a cough syrup would have. Overspiced, and imbalanced, this is almost undrinkable. punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Honey and ginger aroma with some type of adjunct coming through. Flavor is strong honey up front with some lemon fading to slight ginger and more adjunct and a little lingering lemon flavor. Clear light gold pour with a small white head and some sediment. Body is thin and watery.

(thx 2 Rick) 13 month old bottle - "Muddy pale amber, brief head, lots of sediment. Light ginger aroma. Fairly sweet with rounded, oily mouthfeel. Besides the ginger and honey there is not a whole lot going on. Finishes with low bitterness and a slight ginger taste." MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle, 5.5%. Spicy aroma, fresh ginger. Cloudy yellow colour with lots of small floaties. The flavour is mostly sweet, with a hint of ginger. UofFkid (108) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy golden pour with tons of sediment. Very little lacing. Did enjoy this, the Ginger was not overpowering. This is not something I would venture out to find again. omhper (25093) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2007
Bottled. Muddy pale amber, brief head, lots of sediment. Light ginger aroma. Fairly sweet with rounded, oily mouthfeel. Besides the ginger and honey there is not a whole lot going on. Finishes with low bitterness and a slight ginger burn. punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Given that this was an attempt at a historical brew, I have to be a bit liberal in my scoring. I generally thought this was overly bitter. There was not enough sweetness added by the honey to make a good ginger ale (and I’m not talking about the sweet swill that most grocery stores make). It just seemed unbalanced.
