Probably the worst drink I have ever had which incorporates ginger. Shit is an understatement. So fucking shit!

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured a clear amber colour with any head dissipating very quickly. No lacing. Low carbonation. Aroma dominated by ginger such that no other aromas can be detected. Taste of artificial ginger with a hint of sourness about it. Light body, bordering on watery. While drinkable it’s not one I’d try again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Nose shows heavy ginger and some honey. Smells like ginger bread.
Honey and ginger as flavours too. Not bad but a bit too sweet with no balancing bitterness.
Body feels watery.

Pretty average stuff, not terrible but nothing notably good about this beer. Almost tastes like a Ginger Cordial.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Was expecting more for taste, very bland, no sweetness or fiullness of flavor. Not something I will be buying again unless something is done about the taste

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Orangish brown with a soft drink-like that fizzes away to nothing in a few seconds. Aroma of mature ginger, brown sugar, kaffir lime leaves. Nice. Then it’s a letdown. Thin and flat mouthfeel. Very slight sweetness, only a little ginger, some citrus. And then at the finish, it’s pleasant again - dry, mild ginger, gentle citrus. It’s quite good apart from when you’re actually drinking it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Cler deep amber colour with a noisey white head that settles quickly. There is certainly a lot more colour than most other ginger beers I have had. Familiar dry earthy aroma and similar flavour. Dry on the palate without the burn that some ginger beers have.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
this beer had potential. mad brewers can knock up a decent whacky brew, see hoppy heff, and i dont mind ginger in my lager type beers, see monteiths summer ale. that said, ginger chops is a failure. way to lite on all flavours, could really do with a large dose of maltyness. worse than that is the horrible artificial sweetner flavour and mouthfeel. imagine watering down diet ginger ale, letting it go flat, and adding a little vodka. this beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Clear amber, no head. Aroma has gentle ginger notes with a hint of candy. Medium body, light carbonation. The flavour is disappointingly bland. There’s quite a nice start balancing citrusy tang, honey and hints of ginger, but it falls away to a bready vaguely gingery flat middle and finish. Overall it’s bland - unexciting but inoffensive.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Dark orange in colour with a little white head that disappears very quickly. A nice ginger taste at first, but then thins out and becomes rather watery and bland. Not their best effort.
