2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light clear amber with a light white head. Smells spicy with cinnamon and ginger, malt and a light fruity citrus. Medium thin body. Tastes like a normal bitter with malt, caramel being the defining elements with a clear ginger kick. Unfortunately the cheap pasteurisation leaves a chemical element on the finish. Nice spice attempt. Would be better as a cask.

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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Il verdetto è univoco: troppo zenzero. Il gusto è completamente dominato da questa presenza oscura e dilagante, che a metà bevuta comincia a stancare e cancella qualsiasi altra sfumatura. Amaro impercettibile.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle at home (gift). Dark gold with a fair amount of lacing. Head is small. Scent of ginger and mulled spices with a bit of pee. Taste is sulphur-awful at first, then the sweetness of the ginger takes over. I don’t normally like ginger in my beer but this comes as a blessed relief. Gets better as I drink it, bordering on ok. I just don’t get on with this beer particularly well but not bad enough to drain pour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Clear amber with 2 finger thick white head.
Aroma: Ginger, yeasty, bready and umami.
Taste: Medium bitter and sweetness with low sourness.
Palate: Thick lightly coarse texture, light body, average carbonation, lingering malty finish with a ginger undertone and subtle fiery heat (oxymoron).
Comments: Good and glass lace. It is still a beer and not an alcoholic soft drink!

Bouteille:Deep golden, nearly clear, small white foamy layer; sweet-bitter fruity to grainy nose with well detectable aromas of ginger in the Background; sticky MF, light to medium bodied, mainly sweet flavour; lingering sweet and light bitter finish with a slight ginger burn in the aftertaste. Oh no...

Had a bit of a shandy taste to it. The ginger was quite prominent. Had a certain sweetness to it that wasn’t to my palate. Was quite surprised to see the ABV is 5.2

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear amber, no head. Aromas are light ginger, but watery. Taste is the same. Sweet ginger biscuits. Not really my thing.
