2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a bronze color with a quick disappearing head. heavy aroma of, you guessed it, ginger. Also quite a heavy aple aroma (it appears to be flavored with artificial apple, caramel, and some other stuff (as was mentioned in another review, the ingredients are full of "E" artifical stuff). Unfortunately as was mentioned, the thick syrupy feel is not helpful. Spicey ginger bites the tounge quite a bit and stays with you for a while. All in all, I suppose if you like alchopop and if you like ginger, then this is definitely for you.

Looks clear and pale yellow in the glass. Ginger and apple aromas. Very refreshing drink, mouthfeel is fizzy and fruity. Actually doesn’t taste like a beer at all.

For someone who do not like the taste of the regular beer or never acquired a taste for normal beer’s, this is a best regular beer alternative.
Very refreshing, can be compared to the wine coolers, with strong but not overpowering taste of ginger.
I wish that someone starts to import this to US, St. Louis and Chicago area preferably. :)

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 0.5l can shared with and courtesy of ozujsko (thanks!)
Classic Gingers Beer. My first ginger beer.... never had a drink with ginger (that I can remember), so I had nothing to compare it to. It poured a pale ochre/orange colour with lively carbonation. The nose is apparently dominated with ginger (not that I knew, but ozujsko said that that was ginger, and I trust him). It was nice enough. The taste is damn sweet.... It tasted like a radler someone dumped some ginger and aspartame in. Not that unlike "tequila flavoured" beers like Desperados. The number of E’s in the ingredients is staggering...but apart from aspartame all seem to be harmless. I didn’t dislike it as much as I probably should have, and I thought it was a nice... well, juice.
Oh, and why on Earth is there a tornado on the label ?

Bottle. Pours pale yellow with white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty and very much ginger - and I mean VERY much. Very spritzy mouthfeel - almost soda-like. Far too sweet and dry in a spicy manner.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Absolutely horrible. Tasted like a can of VB half filled with Cottees ginger flavoured cordial. Fairly warm when i tried to drink it, so possibly that contributed to its undrinkableness, but no denying its sickly sweetness.

Head lasts for about 40 seconds. Very high carbonation. Doesn’t taste like beer at all, I’m not sure if it even has anything to do with ginger. The flavour is artificial & sweet, but not so terrible to make this undrinkable. A typical Polish fruit "beer".

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Bottled) Clear golden color with an instantly fading, lemonadey head. Artificial, sugary aroma of ginger, apple and pear. Quite artificially sweet, acidic and fruity flavor with a ginger lemon feel. Peppery ginger finish. Light-bodied, sweet and lemonadey palate. For someone who really doesn’t like beer maybe... oh well, there are so many better options still.
