I love both ginger and beer, but I didn't much care for this. The appearance is golden, and the smell is mild wheat with a hint of ginger. Flavor is watery with subtle ginger / candy sugar elements and a harsh, unpleasantly bitter American wheat aftertaste. Alcohol flavors are also dominant which is strange for 4.0% ABV. These go down pretty easy but don't really taste good enough to warrant a second one.

For a much better version of this style, try Kiuchi Hitachino Nest Ginger Brew. I've also had good results brewing dark malt with added ginger and ale yeast (i.e. dark ginger ale).

My first beer with ginger I bought it at superior liquor store in luisville, CO.
Nice to know that they use an organic ginger for this brew.
I pored this beer in a plastic glass at my hotel room it looked light copper, with 2 F head with some scattered laces.
The aroma is sweet and grainy and a faded ginger smell.
Very astringent and but you can feel its malty backbone all the way to the end wish is really great for a beer they call light.
Very good brew

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured a golden copper color in a Stone imperial pint glass with a 1 F head.

Aroma: mild ginger.

Mouth feel: well carbonated.

Taste: this beer is all about ginger. I drink ginger tea daily, so I like the taste in the beer: it's ginger forward. I must admit that it grows on me after a while.

Good bitterness in the finish.

Overall: very interesting and not everyone's beer. If you like spice beer, or any food/beverage with ginger be sure to check this out.
