Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

Clear, weathered golden color with a decent lacing on top, which seems to do a lot of stick- ing around. Fresh candied ginger aroma; ginger snap cookies come to mind when the malt jumps in. Snappy crispness pops off of a fluffy, moderate-sized body. Ginger is clean with a mild bite up front--fresh, cracker-like maltiness is quite delicious. Mild hopping lets the ginger really do its job. Ginger flavor never goes over the top, but does linger and stick to the palate. Dry, gingery finish.

Warm weather beer? Or perhaps a beer to have before dinner to whet the appetite? Perfect use of ginger, as it can be a beast if wielded too much. We'd love to see this root used more often in brewing, so thanks to Left Hand for reminding us.

3.93/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: Big 22oz brown bomber bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Crystal clear, bright golden in colour. Pours a rather thick white foamy head, a bit creamy and it sticks to the glass.

Smell: Ginger, herbal with tropical-like fruit aromas.

Taste: Real smooth mouth-feel. Light bodied with a lot of up-front even malt sweetness that leans towards "sugary" in taste. Malt characters are biscuity and toasted. A fruity beer with tropical fruit-like flavours that complements the ginger / herbal flavours that follow. The ginger lends a nice bite to the brew and blends nicely with another distinct flavour, Saaz hops. Both create a nice spicy feel to the brew, that is refreshing and backs the crisp finish of the beer. I can also pick-up faint citrus hop flavours from the Cascade hops, and a soft hop flavour from East Kent Goldings. There's also some hop oils and hop leaf textures in the mouthfeel. The mixture of complex flavours is very tea-like. Aftertaste comprises of residual ginger flavours and some grain / biscuit notes.

Notes: This beer is brewed using a pale ale as the base with the addition of fresh organic ginger root, which has been used in brewing for ages but is quite uncommon these days. As a such, Juju is a rare treat and very unique. A most refreshing beer. I can also see this being a great "chick" beer -- no offense to all the women out there, but you know what I mean -- or a great introduction beer for those who don't really like beer.
