This will be quick cuz man, I hate me some Ginger. Ginger Bread, Ginger Chicken, Ginger Interns. I love me some Wendy's girl, but that's different. Cool bottle, makes me thing it might have housed some Rum at one point in time.
Do you like Orange in your beer? Do you eat Ginger Bread Houses? Then this beer is for you, if that's your thing, I promise, you will love this beer. Me, not so much.
Every beer I review gets at least one point because its a beer so I'll go 1.5 out of 5 on this. Just not my style.
I tried to be open minded, I did. I ignored the fact that this was an orange version of Crabbie's regular ginger beer. Hey, slight variants on a moderately successful theme gave us the Mercury Capri. OK, bad example.
I made a concerted effort to look past the fact that this is best served over ice with a slice of orange in it. Beer. Over ice. What am I, in community college?
I even made a half-hearted attempt to ignore my own disdain for ginger. It always struck me as an old-timey flavor from the days when you had your choice of ginger, beeswax and asbestos at the local soda jerk.
I drank it. All of it. Ice. Orange. And all. It wasn't as bad as I expected. Kinda like one of those goofy flavored sodas that only exist at your local Supermercado. It did not have me craving a second. If you do most of your drinking on a sun porch, you may just dig this. Me? I'll pass.
