2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, unpasteurized. A dark ale with added ginger. At 4.7% ABV I would expect more flavour in a beer, this is a fairly watery affair- disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500mL bottle BBE: 30/09/16. Lightly chilled. Pours a deep copper body with medium haze and a medium, lasting, fairly tight, off-white head. Medium-low intensity nose that’s soapy, with ginger, coriander and light spice. A hint of caramel sweetness is detectable on the tongue, along with a light bitterness. Medium-bodied with an insipid, watery texture, high carbonation and a warming, gingery finish. More than a "hint of ginger", this is a ginger beer. In some ways that’s a relief, because there’s not very much underneath.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle brought from Scotland for me by AZ - thanks, A! Lovely refractive ruby-amber, large foamy beige lasting head. Aroma is light cereal, orange peel and sweetened ice tea, a little spicy. Taste - wow, that’s weird - tons of sweetened tea with lemon, incredible mineral tang to it - not bad, but so strange. Light and watery mouthfeel, not much carbonation, bitter tea-tannin in the linger. May be a bit old, but not horrid; hop character totally faded though

On tap at the Auld Brig in Irvine. Dark and spicy. Very nice but I prefer it bottled.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Pours amber with a frothy off white head. The taste is malty. Slightly fruity with just a hint of ginger. Not offensive, but not very exciting either. Thin bodied.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Amber beer with a thin foamy head and a spicy aroma. The ginger does come through in the flavour as well but it is, mercifully, rather subtle and more part of a linger backtaste. The main flavour is sharp, tangy fruit and malt. It’s crisp and distinct and while I wouldn’t necessarily rush back for more the ginger does give it an interesting twist.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours clear amber-brown, thin off-white head. Aroma of ginger biscuits, not much else. Taste has more spice, and is sweet. Finishes with a spicy sweet linger. Not my cup of tea.
