So here is a soft drink interlude. Hey, it's a beer, right? And it's ginger. I love ginger. When oceansedge and james_b visited last time, they dropped in a 1/2kg packet of lumps of crystallized ginger. It lasted me a week.
Pours a pale beige. Almost, but not quite, clear, with large bubbles of carbonation.
First sip: Sweet, but not sickly sweet even though it contains a lot of sugar. Also has a faint lemon flavour that vanishes quickly, followed by an even fainter but persistent ginger flavour with the smallest amount of bite. A lot of carbonation on the tongue. Mouth-feel is thin but not watery.
Admittedly this is one of the mass market brews so the ginger taste is a bit watered down - a little too watered down for me. Even so, it is refreshing and a nice one to drink at any time. My only complaint is that the bottle lid is a rip-top rather than a screw top, so you can't reseal it once opened.
