2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A fine ginger beer for those who aren’t all that keen on ginger. Or fine beer, for that matter. Tastes like a mediocre bitter with a hint of bitter adding a hint of interest.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle courtesy of Nelson at Aaron’s 3rd birthday. Light amber colour, decent carbonation. Drunk at room rather than cellar temperature or colder, and felt quite flabby, sweet malts and some very muddly spice. Maybe would have been more refreshing served from the fridge, but I prefer my ginger (and ginger beer) a bit fresher and sharper. A bit disappointing this.

Pale golden colour, ginger aroma, taste is subtle ginger and after that a bit bland (no pun intended)

Mild fruity aroma. Light golden colour with little head. Definite ginger hit balanced with hops in the finish. Light body with medium carbonation.

Giving this a big ’meh’. Doesn’t have a fresh snap of ginger - just a tired old hint of it. Decent pour, odd smell, off flavour. This was a miss for me.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Amber colour, with slight white head. Ginger and light caramel aroma. Strong ginger, sweet caramel flavour. Not great, a bit to ginger for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice if served slighty chilled or an hour. Smells like Ginger, lemon and malty spicy golden hops. Taste of strong ginger, lemon, bass shandy and acacia honey. A tasty honey, bitter lemon, sweet ginger and golden beer aftertaste. Best severed with jalfrezi or bhuna type currys.
The aftertaste makes the beer worth drinking. Summer quencher.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought in Wakefield.
Taste of ginger but not as sweet as a ginger beer. Strange.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Bottle from Sainsburys at home. Lively, effervescent pour - ginger and spice taste and sensation perhaps a bit overwhelming.
