Grace Jamaican Style Ginger Beer - Oct 4, 2001
Rating : A
Comments : There was one word I thought when I drank this : "Dragonbreath!". Okay, so maybe it's not one word but that's what I thought. When you breath after drinking a swig of this, you'd swear there should be flames emanating from your throat. Nice, simple, hot ginger taste.
Purchased : Abbotsford, B.C., Canada
Hansen's
Rating : A-
Comments : Sweet, gingery, with floral tones. Multi-layered flavour. Smooth.
Purchased : Abbotsford, B.C., Canada
President's Choice
Rating : B+
Comments : Extreme ginger flavour, perhaps too much. Instead of a nice gingery afterburn, you often cough until you're used to it. Great for surprising people though.
Purchased : Langley, B.C., Canada

Purchased : Langley, B.C., Canada
