Bottled 330ml. Clear golden color, small white head. Sweetish honeyish, cardboardish and a bit skunky aroma. Light-bodied. Cardboardish maltyness, lemonade feeling, aftertaste has some ginger burning. Suprisingly quite dry, not sweet. Useless.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 330ml clear glass bottle (S Market, Helsinki) "You Want Some Of This, Beach" tasting
Smells like shitty beer with a bit of ginger added. Very watery. Shitty stale ashtray dirtiness. Some ginger doesn’t make it interesting. Baaaaad beer. Drink Old Jamaica ginger beer instead, it’s 100 times better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Clear golden with no head. Aroma as good ginger with a hint of ginseng. Palate is light and fizzy, more like soda. Flavour has good ginger and beer. It is not at all sweet which is good compared to so any ginger beers. Unfortunately it is also rather watery. Overall it is rather watery, but reminds me of a shandy with ginger beer without the typical sugariness.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden clear body, white small head. Lots of nice ginger in aroma, bit maltiness. Taste is artificial and quite crap. Watery.

Pours a clear golden cokor with no head. Nose is sweet with notes of ginger and spices. Taste is dry and somewhat unpleasant. A bit too dry and one-dimensional.

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.
