courtesy of oh6gdx - clear and bright bronze colour with a fast collapsing foam; aroma of lemonade with a touch of ginger, candy sugar and metal; initially sweet but soon aggressively bitter; finish of ginger and slightly fruity - very strange stuff but far better than expected

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, 4.1%. Lemonade aroma, some ginger, but seems a bit artificial. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is very like lemonade or Radler. Sweet and caramelly. There is some ginger to balance, and without this it would have been a disaster. In the aftertaste there is a little ginger burn.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. No head. Color is pale pale yellow. Aroma and taste are mainly rich ginger with some fruity notes. Light carbonation. I absolutely love ginger and that is a must to drink this beer.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Gingery aroma with notes of sweetness and some fruits. The flavour is ginger, a bit sweet and light maltiness. Way too much ginger for me. Cinnamon version was almost drinkable but this was just awful.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
50 cL can. Pours clear golden yellow with a white and fully gone head. Citric ginger aroma. Sweet ginger and citrusy flavour, not quite unlike the lime version just sweeter and less lemon dominant. Lasting ginger soapy finish. Oh boy how I hate ginger in beer!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a very strong ginger beer presence. A weird and rather awful drink. Bought from Waitrose who should really know better.
