Clear, bubbly, pale golden color with a thin bubbly head. Aroma and taste are on point for what you would expect for a ginger beer. Taste is refreshingly sweet yet spicy on the lighter side of gingery but more compared to a Canada Dry ginger ale. Pairs well with pizza since it is on the sweet side. Check it out for an easy drinker.

Pouring into a Coca-Cola clear glass. Pours pretty thin and very pale. Has a pretty good ginger smell on the nose. Has a sweet taste for a beer. Pretty close to a NA ginger beer, but not much of a bite. Could use more bite and a little more something on the mouth feel. I actually kind of enjoy it for a mixer with bourbon, but not really much when it's just "as is" from the bottle.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very pale white/yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of ginger, not much else. Taste is ginger, a good bit on the sweet side. Feels light and highly carbonated in the mouth and overall not a bad beer, but not one I would need to drink again.

Better name would be Hard Ginger Ale, tastes like Ginger Ale with a small alcohol burn. Decent, quite sweet/sugary.
