This is the ginger beer "Special Reserve Summer Ale". Pale colour. Sweet, a little bit gingery, somewhat, and with not much character.

Nice light golden, good head retention. Very sweet, ginger notes a little strange. bit too cardboardy too unfortunately.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours deep amber with a fading head.
Nose shows caramel, toasty malt and soft floral hops. Not too bad, a little faint though.
Flavours introduce ginger and astringent lemon to the mix, ruining what could have been a pleasant, malty beer.
Needs more carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Has a radler-esque flavour. More citrus shandy than ginger. Sweet, thin body. No distinct honey flavour. Frothy white head, crystal clear, dark golden colour. Easy drinking but a bit cloying and one dimensional.

500ml bottle. White even layer of foam caps off the glass and sits atop an inviting amber gold beer. Foam settles fairly quickly and there is some ginger in the aroma with some nectarine also present and some honey also creeps into the nose after awhile. Spicy flavour with a sweet aftertaste in the mouth and also some ginger flavours.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botlle at a tasting 17th Dec. Pours a clear pale yellow colour, with a thin head. Aroma is very pilsnerish, not a lot going on there. Flavours that came through were a light pine hop, with lemon and honey coming through at the finish. Don’t think I’d get it again.
