Notes: This beer's biscuity malt flavor and hint of citrusy hops are the backdrop for the bold zest of ginger, which adds a warming, spicy character that's just right for a cool night.

Minimal, but lacing head. Aroma has some ginger, as does the flavor, combined with a dry malt flavor. Minimal hops and an odd palate that leaves a sort of coating of ginger and lingering dryness with ginger remaining

Samuel Adams Ginger Beer brewed by Boston Beer Company, with an ABV of 6.00% This Spiced brew pours out a deep golden amber color with a small white head. The head to this brew goes away fast, there is also some nice spotty lacing, to this brew. The smell is rich with ginger, and other spices. You also pick up on some nice sweet grains and malts in the smell. Hops are present in the smell but faint. This is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold and spicy with flavors. You first pick up on the zesty ginger spices then the smooth grains and malts. I like how the spices hit the tongue. The body of Ginger Beer is a soild medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a real nice balance to it. It is hard to pick up on the 6.00% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. If you are not a fan of Spicy brews then, this would not be a brew for you. The spices add a nice touch to this brew. The mouth feel is Spicy, Ginger, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving Samuel Adams Ginger Beer a 4.25 out of 5. I would look this brew up again givin the chance to. Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams), did a super nice job with this spice brew.

Ginger beer pours a copper color with very little head. Mellow arOmaha with ginger. Taste is lighter and bright, with creamy ginger notes. Good body and feel. Overall not bad if you like ginger.

Pours a clear gold color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of slight ginger, hint of pale malt, and a hint of sweet malt. Fits the style of a Herbed / Spiced Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight ginger, pale malt, and a slight sweet malt. Overall, tasty, but simple. and decent appearance.

Enjoy by April 2017. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours golden with nice clarity and transparency; fluffy eggshell white head that falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are malt forward with some balanced spice notes. There's a nice amount of ginger along with some cinnamon. Some caramel and lime in the mix as well. The flavors basically follow the nose. Cinnamon and ginger lead the way along with some nutmeg. Some fresh lime in the mix. Some caramel and biscuit in the finish. Some honey flavor as well. Malts do their thing. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's light with moderate to active carbonation. It's fluffy and very smooth.

This is a solid spiced brew. It's balanced. It starts off flavorful, but seems to fall off a bit as I get into it. It's still enjoyable though.

Found this one lingering in the back of the fridge. I always getting the SA mixed Holiday pack and was hoping this beer would be as good as last year’s sparkling ale.

Pouted into a glass, the beer is light gold with pretty good clarity. There is a white head that leaves nice lacing.

The nose is of light grains and a hint of ginger.

The taste is also light with grains, apple and muted ginger. The ginger does become more pronounced as you work through the beer. I would like to see it amped up another notch. Still, this is kind of a change of pace beer and it is light and refreshing.

The mouth is crisp with a decent level of carbonation that seems to fit the style.

Ginger, lemon peel, and sweet nondescript malt. Smooth, easy drinking feel. Lower carb. Some lingering bitterness. It's OK. Gets old quick though. paired well with sushi.
