Ginger Ale is generally lighter in color, less sweet, and has a lighter ginger flavor.
Ginger Beer is darker in color (often appears cloudy), sweeter, and has a strong ginger taste.
Ginger ale originated in the USA is more popular in the states, while ginger beer is more popular in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand because it was invented in the UK.
However, ginger beer is gaining in popularity in the USA and brands are becoming more prevalent.
Some obscure brands of ginger ale or ginger beer may add caffeine but since caffeine isn't naturally occurring in ginger, it will be listed as an ingredient on the label. If you are in doubt, check there.
