3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Golden amber. Still, almost no head. Hard to get past the ginger in the aroma. A bit of fruit but mostly ginger astringency. Spicy sweet ginger taste tempered by a sour bitter note that asserts itself more convincingly in the finish. Sour/bitter aftertaste. Weak but refreshing mouthfeel. Decent all in all, although I personally tend to dislike ginger beers I can appreciate its worth.

Bottle from my local supermarket. Bronze amber with a medium to thick white head. Aroma has lemons, ginger, faint blokes toilets. Flavour has no toilet thank fuck, bitter lemons and more ginger. Wasn’t really my thing.

500ml bottle from Rhythm and Booze - a quid! Cloudy yellow body, frothy white top. Nose is very much like a cheap shandy, lots of lemonade, can’t pick up the alleged ginger. Taste is sweet, with a little warmth at the end. But like Garrold says... it is a quid!
