Hats off to Crabbies on this one...peeped it in Morrisons the other day. Had to buy a bottle there n then to sample this creation! And i do say it is Yummeh!! I now have succeeded in getting 3 work mates and my Dad hooked on it!! They sell it in sainsubrys too...(hidden amongst the ales)

defo worth a sample...a nice alternative to Cider or beer for the summer!!

i couldnt help myself after reading this thread, i decided to jump ina dee showaa , get dressed and go to morrisons, 2 squid a bottle, i bought two sat on a bench close by and downed them..

ive just returned here is my report..

nice but sickly, couldnt drink more than 3 - 4 really, would be nice if they were 4.5% - 5.0% , and my morrisons dont store them in the fridge, so i sat in the sun drinking them abit warm. all in all , fuckin very nice and ill be buying more soon, but skipping the park bench, and sticking them in ice when i get home..

i saw the thread about an hour ago, and went straight to morrisons, i drink whiskey and ginger aswell, but overall these are nicer, think they will fuck you up with a nice big splash of voddy in them


cheers sammy, im gunna order a case for my holiday .

HAHAHAHA YOU IS THA MAN!!!

you dont hang about do ya!!??

nice one pal...yeah its true i think id struggle after about 5...they are a bit sweet...but much more palletable over ice...i pop the bottle in the freezer too for half hour before opening just to add an extra chill!!

yet to have tried with vodka...but im guessing it will be dangerously tasty!!

Never had such a quick review on something in my life!! Hats off to you Ethix - you da man!!

How can you enjoy ginger beer?

How can you even enjoy ginger?

It's such a horrible taste.

I hate it when people put Ginger nuts in a biscuit barrel. It contaminates all the other nice biscuits!

My brother told me about this, but i have yet to sample it. i am a big believer in whisky gingers, and so am looking forward to this very much, but hesitate to even believe it can champion whisky gingers ;)

good work ETHIX on the review!

Brof!!! Finallllllllly!!! I'm with you! I hate hate hate ginger!!!

But anywho, these must be the new bandwagon, cus Wetherspoons has jumped on it. You can get alcoholic ginger beer in most 'spoons and ethix, you'll be glad, cuz I'm pretty sure the ones the sell are 4.5%.

I'll be avoiding them tho, because I think they taste like SHIIIIIIT!
