330ml bottle from Asda - Clear amber body, no head, loads of fizz. Nose is lots of ginger sugar, sweet lemonade and old stale beer. Taste is sickly sweet, but with a decent warming finish. I was expecting it to be poor, but hey... it isn’t that bad.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a very pale yellow beer with a very sugary sweet lemonade and slight ginger flavour and a sweet sugary finish.

tommann (2857) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours gold with no head. Aroma is warm, soapy ginger. Taste is sweet and sugary, with some ginger on the finish and cardboard on the aftertaste.

Clear glass bottle, 1.2% abv is correct. Nose is non-skunked pale lager with moderate but distinct ginger. Body deep, clear golden with no head. Taste is very sweet, cloying, with no bitterness, but there is a touch of bread and even caramel character. Ginger starts very light but picks up steam as the malt passes into aftertaste; by the end there’s a nice balance struck between the competing elements (though still way too sweet). Light body but not really watery, light fizzy and gentle warmth. I’d be happy to have this on the beach, any impurities are covered entirely and there’s no sign of alcohol.

GTAEgeek (1286) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2013
33 cL bottle. Copper pour, with a thin, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is a mixture of cream soda and ginger ale. Sugary sweet, with a light savory spice in the finish. Light body, high carbonation, and crisp. This is more of a flavored soda than a beer.

BillWyce (745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2012
From notes: Poured clear amber with a 1-finger white head that disappeared almost immediately. Crisp, earthy ginger aroma. Body is light, with a slight oilyness and a slight fizziness. Flavor is of crisp ginger, though not as strong as some ginger beers I’ve had. Nice for a hot summer day though.

The look is orangish that is completely flat with no head or lacing. The aroma smells like a flat ginger ale. The taste is eerily similar like I had an open bottle of ginger ale sitting in my fridge for a month. It’s drinkable but by no means resembles a beer to me. If you’re looking for a soda with a touch of alcohol, this ones for you.

Ugh. Oh my god this beer is disgusting. If they took a lager and dumped a crap ton of sugar and ginger into it, you’d get this one. I would rather never drink beer again than drink this one.

BlackHaddock (4144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Drank while on holiday in Tobago and enjoyed on a very hot, sunny afternoon sat near the pool. Clear 275ml bottle, best before Dec 2008, drank Jun 2008. Poured into a cooled half pint tumbler it appeared a dull gold, light amber colour, but no head, hence the low score for looks. The smell was all about ginger, well what did you expect? Ginger was also the overiding flavour within the taste. It has a strange warm ginger feel, but refreshing and cooling as well, it was just what I needed at the time and my scores reflect that (with some common sense too).
