A traditional style ginger beer, made with a malt base, lashings of fresh ginger root, a touch of organic cane sugar, lemon juice & yeast… that’s it. Our ginger has a distinctly ’beery’ taste without the bitterness of hops. Creating a refreshing, malty spiced brew.

50 cl bottle @ Atala, BBE 01/2014
Aroma is quite light with cinnamon and some ginger. Flavour is quite refreshing with ginger, cinnamon and some citrus. Nice burning ginger afterwards. A bit straightforward and thin but nice anyway.

500 ml bottle. A pale golden body with a small white head. Aroma is just ginger and nothing more. Flavor is sweet ginger with ginger in aftertaste. Thin body, a bit like soda pop. Totally one dimensional.

I’m a massive Williams Bros. fan and have loved ginger beer since I was a kid so this should be a marriage made in heaven. Pours a very delicate yellow with little head or lacing. Smells of fresh root ginger and a touch of lemon. Taste is much the same, medium sweet. Subtle ginger kick in roof of mouth. Unfortunately, that’s all that can be said about it. Not a bad beer but ultimately lacking THAT real ginger kick. Perhaps aimed at a more mature drinker than the same type of product by the likes of Crabbies.

50 cl, bottled. Pours nearly clear gold with a small white head. Aroma: Ginger, lemon, malty dough. Taste: Sweet, trivial bitterness. Palate: Light body, bit oily, thin over all. Noticeable carbonation. Ginger, soap in aftertaste. Ok.

Lots of ginger and lemon, fresh in a bit artificial way. Hazy golden, short head. Light body and feel, sweet, low carbonation, ginger brings bit kick to mix. Can’t help thinking bout air refresheners while drinking this. Not my cup of tea or mug of beer either.

Draught at Cooper’s Ales. Pretty clear gold color, lacy head. Huge ginger nose. Sweet flavor of ginger, lemon, sugary. Not beer like at all, but good flavors.

A - Golden pale, a small head that dissappears quickly and leaves a still loking beer no lacing at all. S - Ginger, Ginger, Ginger bit of sugar and Lemon T - Upfront, crisp firey ginger and light lemon, a bit of malt (and ginger) in the middle then all ginger and warmth at the end. I like ginger and di dlike this but as it is quite one dimentional can’t give it much higher of a rating. But lot’s flavor and a low alc% MD - Very smooth, much more than other "gingerbeers" that are more like soda. The Carbonation is perfect and this is very refreshing. If it were a summer afternoon I may want more. If you like ginger, this is the best one I have ever had! it is a real beer brewed with malted Barley and malted wheat where others are really just alcoholic Soda’s. My mother in law also loved it.

Bottle by APR 2013. Nose is heavy, heavy ginger, and nothing else. Dull clear golden body with a bright white head. Taste initially comes of as a strong spritz of sweet lemonade, even lemon juice, that even stays a while despite the assault thrown by the ginger. There’s considerable ginger heat into the throat and that lasts a long while. Medium body. A great, great accompaniment to certain kinds of foods, and probably the best ginger beer I’ve had in that regard, but not something I’d clamor to have by its lonesome.
