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.

yespr (30734) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2013
33 cl bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy, soapy ginger. Sweet, sugarish, citrusy and smooth ginger. Sweeta nd citrusy finish, no real bite.

oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2014
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.

harrisoni (13256) - 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.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
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

TBone (12439) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2012
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".

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
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.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2012
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.

Rune (7776) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2014
330ml bottle by the courtesy of Finn. Clear late straw coloured body. Loose white head, dissipating fairly quickly. Poor lacing. Mild ginger aroma, pale malts beneath. Candy sweet taste of ginger and that’s it. Lively carbonated. Maybe ok as a sweet soft drink (Tromsø 01.06.2014).

gnoff (7666) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle at The Rover, Göteborg, on July 27, 2012
Clear golden color, small white head. Chalky scent. Trocadero, smågodis/röda ferraribilar, very very very sweet taste. Medium mouthfeel, very low bitterness.
I was told there was plenty of ginger in there too, but I have problems feeling ginger, so can’t say for it myself.

Pale yellow colour with a small white head. Ginger aroma with some malty notes. A bit sweet malty with ginger.
