COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: It is likely that this product is made in a similar way to the Crabbies ginger beer and, if so, would not be rateable. However, we have been so far been unable to obtain sufficient information about the production method to make a definitive decision, so the product remains rateable for the time being. However, please be aware that, if you do rate this product, there is a fair chance that you will lose the rating in due course.

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

rosenbergh (6827) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
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.

mikkopen (835) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2013
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.

SperkeleForce (541) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
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.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
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.

Dermi (628) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
33 cl, bottled. Pours pale yellow with a small white. Aroma: Gingerbread, sugar, syrupy, cola. Taste: Quite sweet, mild bitterness. A bit dry. Palate: Quite light body. M’eh, a soda pop. Old potatoes.

BeerBaboon (1562) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2013
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.

Bamsen78 (3140) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2013
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.

harrisoni (13712) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
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.

mighty_meadow (203) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2013
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.
