Bundaberg Root Beer, 0%

Bundaberg are an Australian brand.

I’ve previously encountered their Ginger Beer – which I enjoyed – but hadn’t tried this Root Beer before so was tempted on spotting it in my local supermarket.

There’s a lot of ingredients on the back label – so how does it taste?

The colour looks like a dark stout – courtesy added caramel.

The nose – to me anyway – is quite artificial.

Light carbonation with a sweet dark cherry thing going on. A bit unusual to my tastes.

Makes for an alternative style of soft drink – despite it being labelled a beer – but I think I’ll stick to the ginger variety myself.

Zingibeer, Ginger Beer, 4%

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a ginger beer – especially an alcoholic one – so spotting this Dublin brewed offering had me hooked.

Very pale in colour – the label boasts natural ingredients & botanicals.

That ginger tang is evident on the nose.

Quite light & very refreshing on the palate. The ginger is more muted & balanced providing a pleasant spicy zing.

Makes for an entertaining alternative & attractive summer drinking experience.
