Notes/Commercial Description:
With more ginger than Gilligan can handle, some might be surprised at the instant blast of flavour and aroma from this true ginger beer, but that doesn't take away from its sheer quaffability.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of ginger is quite powerful and dominate most other ingredient. Taste is dominated by a ginger burn with a lightly sweet malt base. Body is about average with good carbonation. Ginger burn is too hot for my taste and almost no floral notes can be distinguished from this overpowering ingredient.

650ml bottle poured into tulip 19/9/12

A golden copper with minimal carbonation and not much for head or lace

S I think I might have finally found something that can completely overwhelm Phillips house flavor... pickled sushi ginger and lots of it. It is what it claims I suppose, but I have a hard time smelling anything else

T there`s the house flavor I was waiting for, that and ginger, ginger and oh wait I think I`m picking up on some faint ginger perhaps.. Question Mark É fuck off stupid Spanish É I wanted a question mark dammit !!

M the gingers a little spicy on the finish, a little flat and has enough body too keep it average

O perhaps I`m being a little hard on this one, it is what it claims after all

Why dose my keyboard learn Spanish every now and thenÉ yup that É is supposed to be a question mark. I could see this with sushi but I`m just not thinking of many other reasons to drink it

Wow. Definitely different - and takes "herbed / spiced beer" to an entirely new level! Not a beer I'd buy again, but think it's well brewed despite being a tad overwhelming, and I'm glad to have tried it...

Pours a hazy orange amber with enough suspended sediment to look almost gelatinous in the glass. Aroma of pure ginger, with a hint of sweetness in the background, but pretty one-dimensional. The taste is better balanced and actually has malted grain and "beer" elements in the start, before transitioning into a briefly (and pleasantly) "normal" hop bitterness. There is then a distinct transition to a lingering "all ginger" finish.

Only question now is how many days until the ginger fades? Very interesting...
