COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Pasteurised.
Fredericís Great British Ginger Beer is distinctive and unique in that it has been created especially for beer drinkers who like traditionally crafted ales and those who love the taste of ginger.
Tasting note: A wonderful blend of traditional malty ale combined with natural ginger extract gives rise to a rich, ruby red, warming beer. This hoppy and refreshing beer comes to life with a fiery ginger kick and in harmony with fruity lemon notes.

Bottle:
Well you guessed it and if you didnít then you should have, itís in the name after all. This one has tonnes of ginger as expected although it is more filling and creamy on the nose than I would have imagined and the ginger isnít overpowering although it is the only thing I can detect on the nose.
A copper mahogany colour with a very thin, bubbly head that only sticks around the circumference of the glass.
Again almost exclusively ginger tasting although not as strong as you would think from a ginger beer. If it is held in the mouth there is also a warming fizz to it but mainly itís just ginger.
Crisp and fizzy on the palate with a huge amount of carbonation to this one and a fair bit of gas as it settles in the stomach which would prove troublesome after a few but isnít to bad with just one.

I still wouldnít call this one a beer despite what the label claimed, itís just an alcoholic ginger beer albeit a decent one when compared to the likes of Crabbies.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2011
Bottled. Amber colour, small head. Aroma is spices, fruits, wood, fruits and some mild sweet maltyness. Flavour is ginger, clove, cinnamon, malts and some slight wooden notes. Actually not overdoing it with the ginger, which makes it a rather refreshing one.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2011
500ml bottle from Sainsburyís, drunk on 2 December 2011. Dark amber colour. Creamy aroma. Hints of vanilla. Some ginger evident. Stronger ginger on the palate. Soft mouthfeel. Bit of an afterburn but not too excessive. Quite well done I thought.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 28, 2011
Bottle from Sainsburys. Dark amber, red/brown colour with minimal beige head. Aroma is ginger, some apples, bit of toffee, bit of brown sugar. Taste is gingery but not too spicy, and fairly sweet. Bit of a prickle in the mouth, but nothing like a can of old jamaica. Caramel/toffee sweetness sits under the spiciness in the aftertaste. Actually quite nice, but I guess nothing that special.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2011
500ml bottle from Sainsburys Beer Hunt 2011. Its an interesting ginger beer. Chestnut colour. Moderate ginger aroma. Overly fizzy in the mouth. Then this btown maltiness kicks in with a very lasting building ginger bitterness. Not much to talk about upfront but the finish is pretty good I thought
