TBone (18211) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
Bottled (Pikkulintu, 0,75 ltr).
Clear amber color, small white head. Ginger, lemon in the nose. Light palate (for 7.8 % beer). Ginger dominates the flavor, some sweet citrus. Christmas-likey, a bit too simple ginger flavored. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2009
Light hazy orange, amber colour with a dense off white head. Ginger spicy and light malty sweet aroma. Malty, light grainy flavor with notes of hay. Ginger spicy finish. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2009

, Tampere. Amber colour with mediumsized big white foamy head. Aroma is some grassy and fruity hops with spices, some mild gingery notes. Flavour is spicy, fruity and also quite yeasty. Yet another Shorts that is quite strange, but yet balanced and drinkable.
Bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere
Mid- to darkish-orange Doesn’t smell hugely gingery - the
main aroma I get is something I associate with saliva (no, I did not dribble in the glass) - but
ginger is there. There is ginger also in what I’ll call a general
beery taste. Slight banana perhaps from the yeast.
Unusually, Phil did not share this. mjs (7675) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 28, 2009
(Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki, on 2009-04-24 -- shared with teme, thanks!) Amber / copper colour and almost clear. Large white head. Ginger, hops and fruitiness in aroma. Medium bodied, dryish and lightly oily palate with medium carbonation and burning feeling from ginger. Frutiness, Belgian like yeastiness, ginger, hops, bitterness, grapefruit and hint of butter in taste.

Strong fragrance and flavor. Lots of rye and just a bit of ginger. Fairly bitter on the finish. Not bad, but not easy to drink. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - APR 6, 2009
Not for me. Not a big ginger fan and this is definitely ginger. A bit spicy and malty with hints of citrus fruit. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 5, 2009
Courtesy GoT. Hazy copper/orange, large foamy off white head. The combination of fresh ginger, rye, and too much carbonation make this astringent and difficult to drink. I’d like to try this with less expressive yeast and a little sweeter malt to balance the bitter and aromatic components. lb4lb (2632) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2009
bottle in trade from ogglethorp. Thanks! Pours hazy orange with a short lived head. Smell is fresh ginger, and malt. Taste is very dry ginger and lots of hops. Medium to thin body with normal to high carbonation. Very gingery, with nothing much else going on, but perfectly drinkable if you like ginger. Value-wise this is ridiculously overpriced however at around $20 a bottle, I believe. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2009
750ml bottle acquired in trade with hoppymeal (thanks Derek!). Bottle # 87 of 1104. Poured a medum golden colol with a rather large sized off white head. Aromas of ginger, toasty, citrus, and yeasty. Tastes of ginger, citrus rinds, caramel, and had a peppery finish. If you like ginger, seek this one out.
