Pours a clear copper red with a frothed up thick creamy head that lasts for quite a long time.

Smells of ginger (what a shock) and hops. At first, the ginger is most prominent, but after a while, the hops really seem to come out in the aroma.

Has a creamy and slick mouthfeel with very low carbonation.

Tastes of mild ginger (not enough as far as I'm concerned, I was disapointed) which tickles the tongue. Has a touch of honey and a light malted tone. The finish is bitter and over the course of the drink it collects into something more than you'd expect. The aftertaste grows and the ginger warms it.

Okay, but, just an interesting beer.

This is ginger ale, without too much carbonation. Somewhat ginger aroma and taste, was hoping for some sort of bite I get from Jamaican style ginger beer. Clean your palate but if I must have soda, let it be soda. Thin mouthfeel. Bitterness in finish is some saving grace.

there is decent taste, but not much of it. that seems to be the story of this beer. The aroma is good but mysteriously faint. It also seems to be really quite thin. The colour is light auburn with moderate head. fortunately, this beer is quite drinkable.
