Hmm, the nose is a bit worryingly halfway between an ale and a ginger beer. Pours a clear burnished copper with no lasting head of any description. The taste - not for me. Imagine a pretty insipid, unremarkable ale ... now dump a load of sugar and a bit of fiery ginger in it. That’s what this is. If that’s your thing, then fine, but, again, not for me.

pitch992 (196) - SLOVENIA - APR 23, 2017
Aroma of ginger, if you really try you can get some caramel as well. Very harsh, unbalanced, some spice notes come through in the taste, very sweet as well. light body, somewhat thin, felt fizzy, finish is long and harsh. Not a favourite.

First ginger beer ever tried. The ginger taste is too overpowering. Not not my type, yet.

I very pleasant spicy taste, and a sweet aroma. Excessive Carbonation reminding me of Vernors ginger ale back in my youth in Michigan.

klukas (225) - Rijeka, CROATIA - FEB 28, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into some shaker glass. Appearance: Clear copper colour, with medium creamy head. Aroma: Ginger, citrus... Palate: Light and syrupy body; gentle carbonation. Taste: Sweet, ginger and some other spices, cookies, citrus-like and pepper bitter and hot aftertaste. Overall impression: Interesting, strange, might be enjoyable, but not my kind. Reminds of peppery radler. Nice label as usual from Wychwood.

martjoobolut (3869) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle (from Tallinna Kaubamaja). Pours amber with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, ginger, bit artificial. Flavor is very sweet, ginger, slight popcorn, sugar, grainy notes. Finish has some nice ginger bite. Doesn’t feel watery. Overall: drinkable ginger lemonade, but just too sweet.

SonOfAnarchy (392) - ST HELENA - JAN 3, 2017
Cloudy golden body, rich white head. Aroma of spices, caramel, ginger root. Taste feels soapy and sharp. It literally bites your tongue in the first few swigs. Very sweet, low bitterness. Notes of ginger root, caramel, spices. Too spicy and really tough to gulp down. Medium to low body, high carbonation.

kubmal (273) - POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Light amber colour, nice head. Aroma of ginger and citrus, simple and pleasant. Barbaric sweetness dominates the taste, there is no bitterness, ginger is present with some burning. Too sweet and unbalanced.

jamaty (2095) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 16, 2016
Anaranjada, nebulosa. Aroma tremendo a gengibre. Sabor brutal a gengibre. Mega dulce y con tanto sabor a gengibre que hasta pica la garganta. Imposible. Al desague.
