3.89/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Gravity halfpint at the Euston Tap.

A: Clear light amber body with a fine, sticky white head. Tons of lace. Great.

S: Pure, powerful ginger root. Nothing else. Good for it achieving its stated goal, but bad job eliminating any and all complexity. Average, I suppose.

T: Ginger is dominant, but some bready malt and appley fruitiness join in as well ahead of the dry finish. Very tasty stuff.

M: Creamy, smooth, well-carbonated medium body. Velvety.

O: This worked quite well, but I think ginger can be better used as a side attraction rather than the main event.

Cheers!

3.99/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle bought from Beerritz.co.uk... bottle was 6% ABV not the 4.5 for cask listed here...

Poured a deep hazy golden colour. White head poured pretty thick and foamy then faded quickly to light pock marked coating with thickish edging... no real carbonation... some patchy lacing...

Aroma - Strong spicy (stem?) ginger to the fore followed by some biscuity malts, some light grassy hops come through after the ginger, apple and lime fruitiness, some talcum powder hints, floral, some faint soapiness...

Taste - Pretty much as above - a nice balance of strong spicy fresh ginger with biscuity malts coming through in the background, faint clove, some light sweetness, quite floral, peppery and grassy hops...

M&D - Pretty sharp and dry... light bodied... very very quaffable but at 6% maybe a little strong to be sessionable..

Overall - An excellent example of how a ginger beer should be... none of the sickly sweetness that you quite often get in mass market versions - just a well balanced quaffable brew... recommended...

4.42/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Pours golden with white head that soon fades to patches, large pieces of downsliding lacing. Aroma is clearly dominated malty ginger, sweetish, but pleasant.

Taste is mostly fresh ginger, after a while some spices can be tasted with herbal feel to them and very, very long lasting ginger aftertaste, I felt the taste of this beer for several hours more. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing.

I have tried a couple of ginger beers before, but this was the most ginger of them all. I am not a fan of such beers, but Marble Ginger is truly amazing.

(From notes)

A - Poured with a dense, pure white head. Orangey gold in color

S - Aroma is like freshly chopped ginger, backed up with some malt sweetness

T - Ginger is definitely up front at first sip, with some clove and other spices coming in at the middle. Herbal spiciness, and very much like white pepper in the burn on your tongue

M - Fairly light, thin mouthfeel

D - Even as complex and spicy as this brew is, I actually wanted another immediately following my half-pint sampler. Surprisingly drinkable.

Overall, this was a really interesting brew. The tasted stayed on my lips an hour after I had this (even after I had another brew following it!). Would very much recommend.
