Ginger candy soap. Ginger soda. No beer. Way too sweet. Half bottle was enough. Yuck.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle. BBE Apr/15. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Clear pale golden colour with a tiny frothy white head.
Ginger, sweetness and Ginger Ale in the aroma.
The flavour is super sweet... incredibly sweet. Only some ginger burn pops up after the sweetness slowly fades away. Bad bad bad! Way too sweet.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
330 ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, thin and quickly dissipating head. Sweet, cola-like aroma with notes of ginger and lemon. Sugary, sweetish fruity flavour with a slightly gingery finish. Too much sugar and too little ginger, to my taste at least. Even if this was a soft drink, it would not be very good - as a beer, it’s a complete failure.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours Golden fizzy Like soda With an really fast vanishing head. Taste is pretty sweet soda like. Notes of honey, ginger, orange, citrus. Too sweet and watery body. Reminds me of mead a bit.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden with slight sparkling and a short, thin head. Sweet aroma has lots of ginger, bit lemon. Sweet and light, fizzy carbonation, long ginger finish, more like cider to me, slight burn that takes time to come is the best part. Really sweet and bit unbeery. Hard to think how this could work.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear, pale copper with white head. Aroma is ginger and promises of diabetes inducing amounts of sugar. Flavour is ginger and sweet. Too thin and too sweet. Hardly a beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Clear aroma of ginger and apples. Sweet flavour of honey, sugar and lemonade, enriched by notes of ginger. Sweet finish. Not quite balanced and far too sweet. A disappointment.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Sainsburys drunk at home. Clear gold lots of bubbles but not much of a white head. Aroma of ginger and lemon. Smells artificial. Has a slightly woody taste and some sweetness too. I mean it’s not that good. The woodiness is a bit nasty. Just about finished. it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice and pleasant drink with ice on a hot summers evening. Not got quite the kick that Crabbie’s has but enjoyable all the same especially if you prefer your ginger beer without the burn in the throat.
