1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled (from Alko). More or less golden colour with a small quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is ginger, citrus and that’s about it. Flavour is rather much ginger, citrus and sugar as well. Sweet. More like lemonade than beer. Still a bit of points for being refreshing.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle on a train in London heading to Luton. This beer should probably remain rateable so the entry can act as a warning to any unsuspecting ticker that may want to drink this atrocity. It pours clear gold, effervescent with a fine, white foam head. There is some spicy ginger on the nose, with hints of the sugar onslaught to come. The flavor is hugely, sickly sweet, very syrupy, with just nips of ginger to provide a meek kick. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sticky and stupidly sweet to finish with just moderate ginger character. Just way too sweet. Anyone who knows me knows that I will rarely not finish my beverage; I had to dump a good portion of this bottle.

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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, dense off-white head. The aroma has ginger and white sugar, not much else, if anything. Some lemony flavors, with white sugar and lots of ginger. Medium to thin on the palate, soft carbonation. Short ginger finish with white sugar. Doubt this one has anything to do here on ratebeer,but it’s sort of pleasant anyway. 140315

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled 330ml (K-Citymarket)
Pale yellow, small white head. Soap, dish cleanser aroma. Medium-bodied. Soapy, overly sweet-sugary flavor. Ginger in the aftertaste. Burning ginger in the aftertaste. Too, too sweet "beer".

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I don’t believe this should be rateable - this is not a beer, and Stone’s is not a brewery (it’s simply a brand name and trademark owned by a company that makes ginger wines). It’s a refreshing alcopop, not quite as good as old jamaica, but better than brands like schweppes.
