Turtles (2285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
330ml bottle from ICA, abv 3.5%. Almost clear pale golden, small white head that disappears quickly and completely without leaving lacing. Aroma and taste is all about ginger and sugar, just as watery and fizzy like soft drink.

Aromas is grandmothers homemade midsummer mead. Taste is kind of poor. Not much more than strong ginger and watery juice.

This is not a beer per se, but a ginger root, malt based drink, called ginger beer, so people judging it from a normal beer perspective are viewing it from the wrong angle imho. Its amber coloured with slight brownish notes, has a generous head that does not stay for long. Carbonation amplifies the ginger-black pepper notes. Taste is full of ginger, somewhat sweet but still hot enough to make me wonder whether this could be turned into a hot drink to fight off a cold. Its not a bad drink, its worth trying, its not a niche drink, not a beer. Full stop.

ovo mi je prva prava ginger piva. Stvarno ima miris i okus po đumbiru. Ima dosta gorkasti fini, moda da je piva malo zaokruenija okusima bilo bi i bolje. Previe se ističe ta gorčina od đumbira.
