From a bottle, pours a cloudy light gold, thin wispy white head on top.

The smell is two things and two things only. Ginger root and lemon. It is really hard to pull anything more out. There is some faint lactic acid, vinegar, almost like stomach acid/vomit.

The flavors are strong and distinct. Lots of citrus, ginger and lemon. The ginger and lemon are fighting each other rather than working together. Then you add in the citric acid and this gets to be a mess and disgusting. I think there is a good idea in there, but you have to get the ginger and lemon to play on the same team.
