Kenny Road Market, I picked up a bottle of Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer. The beer is produced by John Crabbie and Co. in Glasgow, United Kingdom.
The label recommends serving it over ice with a slice of lime or lemon. I tried it first over ice, then with some lemon juice. In the first case (ice only) it reminded me of a sweeter, milder version of Vernor's Ginger Ale. With lemon, the sweetness became less intense and the overall flavor did improve (though it was actually great from the start). After a few sips, you pick up a bit of a burn from the ginger.
The aroma is that of a ginger ale soft drink, sugary and with a strong ginger aroma. The color is a clear yellow with a thick white head that dissipates relatively quickly.
If you like ginger ale soft drinks, you'll enjoy this ginger beer. If you're looking for something more like a beer and less like a soft drink, you'll want to steer clear of this. It is very, very soft drink like.
Since I enjoy an occasional ginger ale, I really liked this. I'm giving it a 10 out of 10. I can't imagine a better ginger beer.
IBU: Not applicable, really, but estimated 0 or 1.
My rating: 10/10
