UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 500ml bottle (K market)
Orange, fizzy. Bland aroma. Fizzy palate. Bland lagery taste - creamy, some ginger but not too caricatured. A bit too fizzy, not offensive though. A bit shandy-ey.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A light golden coloured headless beer. This is just right. A sweet lager with refreshing ginger. More ginger in the nose than the taste, but it’s there and provides a nice hit. So very refreshing and moreish. This could never get boring. Nothing harsh at all like some ginger beers can be. It’s lovely folks, come on!

Bottle picked this up at Witney, Waitrose, 20-01-08 Pours a mid golden colour with medium carbonation. The taste whilst not unpleasant is a little too commercial and the ginger tastes more powder like than root ginger. Rather to sweet as well for my liking but it slipped down ok
