Default Is Ginger Ale really an Ale?

If so, is there a recipe for it that will taste more like a Ginger Ale and less like a traditional ale?

Two factors: the amount of ginger and sweetness. My Lady Golden Ginger Blonde Ale is basically a Mild with about 8 oz. of crushed ginger added at 60 minutes, plus 8 oz. of lactose for sweetness. Works fairly well.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
