Maybe a spiced ale or spiced beer? I don't know for sure, but I think of "Ginger Beer" as a strongly flavored/spicey ginger ale type soda. Something like Reed's Extra Ginger Beer.What would one call an ale or lager flavored with ginger? If unhopped could it be classified as a Gruit, or would that be reserved for the specific Gruit spice blends? Would one say Pilsner/porter/brown ale etc spiced with ginger? I’m interested because Every time I talk about any of the beverages referred to as ginger beer (accurately or not) I feel the need to explain the differences.
