Poured into a pub glass.
Appearance: Pours a golden straw color with a half-inch of white head. When held up to the light, the translucent brew glows orange. There is plenty of carbonation present, as there are plenty of bubbles rising to the top of this brew.
Smell: Ginger, as expected, is the defining characteristic. There is also a tinge of malty sweetness below the ginger as well. Nothing complicated, but it smells like what is advertised.
Taste: It begins with a splash of sweet ginger taste, which spreads all over my palette. It then gives way to a crisp, grain finish that tends to cleanse the palette. There aren't really any notable hop qualities here. It pairs well with spicy foods and seafood. I had this with sushi at a beer tasting party, and it performed well in that environment.
Mouthfeel: Light and very carbonated. I feel that the carbonation is a little over done, but nothing offensive.
Drinkability: These are light, and have a delicate, non-complex flavor, so it would be quite easy to knock back a few of these. The ginger taste may be a bit much for some, but I like it well enough.
An interesting change of pace. It's best paired with a food, as it was seemingly brewed for that purpose. It's worth a try if you get the chance.

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
