2.6/5  rDev -22.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

355ml served chilled in a La Chouffe tulip

Pours with a light amber body, lots of bubbles emanating from the bottom of the glass. Thick puffy white head with good retention, forms about half an inch thick but settles to a modest dense whisp. Lots of patchy lacing

Smell, fresh and pickled ginger, galangal and a touch of aniseed. Slightly spicy on the nose, some thin bready malt in the background and a tiny alcoholic aroma

Taste, crisp and biscuity malt followed by tonnes of fresh ginger flavours. Gingerbread and some slightly metallic malt character on the finish. Some identifiable hop character, some citric hop flavour and sweet malt

I have to admit that ginger is one of the few flavours that I've not fond of in food or beverages, subtle ginger flavours backed up by garlic or a strongly flavoured main ingredient are fine but if the dominant flavour is of ginger I'm generally put off. Thus this beer seriously doesn't do it for me, tthe myriad of various strong ginger flavours put me off therefore I didn't enjoy this. If you are a ginger fan especially a fan of non-alcoholic ginger ale then you'll probably go for this, but not me...

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

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

3.96/5  rDev +17.5%
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.
