Notes / Commercial Description:
With more ginger than Gilligan can handle, some might be surprised at the instant blast of flavour and aroma from this true ginger beer, but that doesn't take away from its sheer quaffability.

Three times I have tried this beer.. First in 2012 it was bland and tasted nothing like ginger beer. Again in 2014, nice ginger hit, but the ginger tasted like items powdered ginger, and the after taste was funky.. Again today, and I've had urine tasted better... This is a HUGE fail for Phillips.

Reviewers here are being awfully generous--I found this nearly undrinkable, and I'm a fan of both ginger beers specifically and ginger as a flavour more generally. Thin body with sharp, medicinal, pickled ginger and sickly malt smells/tastes. Carbonated all to hell. This was very nearly a drain-pour for me.

Poured a golden colour with only a slight head. The ginger comes out and hits you in nose. The taste is what you would expect of a ginger beer, slightly citrus with some spice and mildly malty. Actually did not mind this beer even though I'm not usually a ginger beer fan
