500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s pours golden with a light haze, no head. Aromas of stemmed ginger, preserved in syrup. Ginger nuts. Taste is sweet, light ginger heat on the finish. It grew on me.

With a full bodied ginger aroma and a light bodied appearance, this Ginger Beer is surprisingly delicious! It goes down easy and lingers for just the right amount of time.

ManVsBeer (8777) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Golden with no head and a small carbonation. It’s very spicy, and this lingers with a small burning sensation in the palate. There’s lots of ginger in the nose.

berkshirejohn (6077) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Hazy straw with an immediately dissipating white head and heavy carbonation; gingery aroma; sweet gingery taste and gingery finish with some heat. Not much trace of the beer, and much too sweet for me.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear deepish gold with no head. Ginger ale style aroma. More a ginger beer like a soft one than a hard one. Bit perfumed bit sweet. Ok but I like my ginger beers to be a bit more beery. Easy drinking. Good ginger bite on end but a touch too perfumed.

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2012
Yellow gold, carbonated like a softdrink. Smells of ginger with alight chemical feel. Medium oilythin body with soft carbonation. Light watery fruity start witha spicy ginger finish. Not sure about these alcholic ginger beers. They taste more like soda than ale most of the time. I ranked this to my enjoyment rather than how I think of it as a beer. Definatly becomes better when the carbonation goes down but has a strange hop lager aftertaste.
