Pours a clear amber in the tall glass. Adequate foam and plenty of carbonation in the mouth. The aroma is gingery spice, with more in the nose.
The ginger is not overly powerful, but it's the only real flavor in this stuff. There is a little malty body and It's just slightly sweet. The mouthfeel is faintly acidic, and eventually there is a bitterish aftertaste. It's really not bad for a flavored beer, but only is you really like ginger. More hot than bitter.
From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass. The label calls this a ginger pale ale, brewed with ginger, galangal and orange peel.
Appearance: rich orange hue with no haze and a strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy tan foam which dissipates pretty quickly. Color is quite lovely, though.
Smell: lightly malty pale-ale aroma through which the ginger and orange shine quite well. The spicing seems to have been done with an even hand; this is about as well as I've seen ginger handled in a beer.
Taste: malty and a little bit on the biscuity side; bitterness is low. The ginger is present in the flavor, although it's in the aroma where it really shines. Still, a pretty good beer for what it is.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a well-integrated carbonation and a decent creaminess for the style.
Overall: this is a surprisingly subtle and even-handed beer. I'm quite impressed; it's nice and drinkable too. Kudos!
