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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initially lively clear golden beer with a thick white head. Sweet and earthy with upfront ginger aroma. Bold ginger sweetness dominates the taste with some light floral hoppyness in the rear. Sweaty dog hair taste in the finish though. What’s that about? Never the less I like it. Sweaty dog an all. Always dug ginger me.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled 500ml. Clear amber color, small steady white head. Sweet honeyish aroma with ginger. Light-bodied. Sweetish with harsh ginger-like notes. Almost like a alko soda mix. Terrible.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle bought at Waitrose supermarket.
Aroma: floral first, then some gingeriness, delicate, inviting.
Appearance: white frothy, persistent head, CO2 bubbles busy rising up through a brite, golden beer. Great.
Flavour: sweet and gingery first, a "dusty" ginger flavour, some creamy passtisserie flavour, followed by some light hop bitterness in the linger.
Palate: carbonation is refreshing, slips down nicely.
Comment: a little too sweet and ginger beerish for my liking.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cerveja amarelo claro, brilhante e translúcida. A aparência aponta para uma cerveja refrescante e é possível ver bolhas subindo. O aroma é peculiar, com o toque cítrico e de gengibre já se pronunciando. O sabor é pouco equilibrado, com o gengibre se destacando e deixando pouco espaço para o álcool, amargor e frutas cítricas. A drinkability é um pouco prejudica pelo excesso de gengibre, que também permanece no aftertaste, deixando um toque apimentado no paladar. O corpo é leve e a carbonatação é alta. Cerveja muito peculiar, que peça pelo exagero do gengibre.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with two fingers of soapy off-white head, good retention and excellent lacing. (4/5) Nose is ginger and not much else. (4/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild peppery spice. (3/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sticky finish. (2/5)
A bit of a sticky mess. Basically ginger beer, and certainly not an ESB. And not very good. Drank half, got bored. (8/20)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of ginger, citruses, and delicate pale malts. Taste is also sweet and mostly ginger; also some cloth and what seems to be a dish soap - hard to detect other notes to be honest. Light to medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish introduces some long-awaited malty and yeasty flavors. Overall a bad beer, doesn’t resemble an ESB at all and it wouldn’t be a big issue if at least it was good.
