Ginger Beer.

I have to admit, the Ginger Beer in this Winter mix pack from Sam Adams were the only ones I actually didn’t want to try/drink from the pack.
Of course I made it a point to crack one of these first.
Bright and Zesty it said…
This beer was definitely bright.
But zesty?
Not so much.
I really didn’t plan on wasting much time talking about this one, but you need to know, and knowing is half the battle. 

As I drank this brew, I kept asking myself: “What are you even drinking?”
The flavor was pretty much nonexistent.
I would say it was like drinking a flat soda, but in reality, it was like drinking a flat beer.
Neither is all that good of an experience.
The only thing that saves this beer is the 6% abv.
You could drink quite a few and not even realize you’re drinking a beer.
But, you won’t want to do that if you’ve become accustomed to drinking tasty brews.

The Straight Hops: 2 out of 5 Kegs
I know, I gave this beer a hard time, so why give it 2 Kegs?
I’d drink it if someone handed it to me, but I would never buy it again.


I like beer. I drink beer. Sometimes, I even review beer. If I feel like it...
