650ml bottle, with a large proclamation that this is, indeed, ALCOHOLIC ginger beer. Made with spicy ginger and a touch of lemon - how quaint.
This beer pours a clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with one finger of fizzy, loosely bubbly beige head, which dissolves quite readily, in the manner of another sort of ginger ale we all might know, leaving nothing in the way of lacing.
It smells like lemon/lime Slurpee, if you'd sprinkled some powdered ginger into it, and said ginger was actually rather zingy. The taste is big and sweet, with mildly caramelized malt, a strong dose of simple syrup, still sassy and softly spicy ginger, flat Mountain Dew, and a slight drying mustiness.
The bubbles are present, but fairly innocuous, the body a tacit medium weight, as all that sugar doesn't tread lightly, and mostly smooth. It finishes on the sweet side, the ginger heat waning, and the lemon fruitiness stubbornly lingering.
While not a bad ginger beer, per se, I'm only saying so because they didn't chicken out on the spiciness quotient. Otherwise, this leans a lot closer to the Crabbie's of the world than an actual beer.
