Hmm, the nose is a bit worryingly halfway between an ale and a ginger beer. Pours a clear burnished copper with no lasting head of any description. The taste - not for me. Imagine a pretty insipid, unremarkable ale ... now dump a load of sugar and a bit of fiery ginger in it. Thatís what this is. If thatís your thing, then fine, but, again, not for me.

martjoobolut (3543) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle (from Tallinna Kaubamaja). Pours amber with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, ginger, bit artificial. Flavor is very sweet, ginger, slight popcorn, sugar, grainy notes. Finish has some nice ginger bite. Doesnít feel watery. Overall: drinkable ginger lemonade, but just too sweet.

SonOfAnarchy (227) - ST HELENA - JAN 3, 2017
Cloudy golden body, rich white head. Aroma of spices, caramel, ginger root. Taste feels soapy and sharp. It literally bites your tongue in the first few swigs. Very sweet, low bitterness. Notes of ginger root, caramel, spices. Too spicy and really tough to gulp down. Medium to low body, high carbonation.

kubmal (242) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Light amber colour, nice head. Aroma of ginger and citrus, simple and pleasant. Barbaric sweetness dominates the taste, there is no bitterness, ginger is present with some burning. Too sweet and unbalanced.

jamaty (2036) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 16, 2016
Anaranjada, nebulosa. Aroma tremendo a gengibre. Sabor brutal a gengibre. Mega dulce y con tanto sabor a gengibre que hasta pica la garganta. Imposible. Al desague.

gorkogrlo (345) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 9, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2016 Bottle. First of all, this one is more like ginger ale than beer. Anyway, orange color with small to medium head. Aroma of sweet ginger, which is absolutely dominating. Maybe some caramel notes also. First what I noticed in mouth is overly expressed sweetness. At first sip there is lot of ginger flavor with almost none notes of spiciness. After second sip spiciness is here and with evry new sip it is stronger. Bitterness is hidden. Overall: not sure if this is beer, but yes probably it is because of malts presents inside. If I would rate this as ginger ale it would be also too sweet. For beer it is extremely too sweet and unbalanced. But it is still drinkable in some way.

suurjuust (3153) - ESTONIA - OCT 29, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear golden beer, medium white head. Nose is soapy ginger and sweetness, citrus and malt notes under the soap, but soap soap soap. The ginger burn in the flavor is not bad, less soapy than the nose, but why does this have to be so sugary sweet? Very flawed.
