mR_fr0g (11601) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle at home picked up from local Sainsbury’s. A light hazed golden orange coloured pour with a little fizz and no head. Aroma is sweet sugars, candied ginger, spicy, canada dry, woody. Flavour is composed of medium sweet sugars, fiery ginger, spicy finish. Palate is very sweet, highish carbonation, sticky. More like a sweet soft drink. Not bad at all.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2014
With a full bodied ginger aroma and a light bodied appearance, this Ginger Beer is surprisingly delicious! It goes down easy and lingers for just the right amount of time.

ManVsBeer (9993) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Golden with no head and a small carbonation. It’s very spicy, and this lingers with a small burning sensation in the palate. There’s lots of ginger in the nose.

berkshirejohn (6407) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Hazy straw with an immediately dissipating white head and heavy carbonation; gingery aroma; sweet gingery taste and gingery finish with some heat. Not much trace of the beer, and much too sweet for me.
