2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle. L2212. BB 28/Sep/13. (Prisma) Espoo, Finland.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Citrus bitterness, ginger, some sweetness and malt in the aroma.
The flavour is more malty with some ginger and lemon zest. Some warming spiciness in the aftertaste. Still not very good.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of ginger, earth and some cinnamon-like spiciness. Flavour of strong grainy malts, ginger, sugar, mild dried fruits and some dry hay. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a weak grainy finish. Somewhat refreshing but a very bland ginger beer. No burning ginger here.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
0,33l bottle from the local supermarket. Pours clear golden with a low head. Aroma is malts and ginger. Strange flavor is malts, ginger and hops. Very watery. Disappointing.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Strong ginger pretty much covers other aromas, lemon, one-sided. Clear golden, no head or lacing. Light body, soapy feel, low carbonation, sweet bit ginger kick in finish. Still have not found much joy in these ginger beers, seem artificial to me.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled (from Prisma, Vaasa). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is ginger, some lime, quite dustyness and mild grains. Flavour is quite similar with the ginger actually being quite burning. Mild cardboard as well. Useless as such, but could probably be nice along with some food.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 23/08/12. An anaemic gold coloured beer with no head. Plenty of fresh ginger aromas. Ginger in mouth too with more sweetness. A decent body for its low ABV. Biscuity notes too. Pretty good ginger beer. The ginger is fairly fiery.
