Saw it myself Brad but stayed well clear. Probably as tasteless as the beer.

Yeah that was my thoughts as well Rowy. But I might grab a couple of bottles tommorrow and give it a crack.

Give it a heads up if it's OK Brad if its tasteless SWMBO will probably find it attractive. Might throw a couple her way, though Monteiths crushed apply cider is her go at the moment. That could of course change in the next millisecond or normally just after I buy a heap :angry:

I find it odd that the current brewing and brewery craze isn't for beer.

Do wish they'd call a perry a perry though.

They don't call a perry a perry? I was under the impression that most of the 'pear ciders' sold here would not be classed as perry by CAMRA as they are not made using traditional perry pears. Rather, they mostly use pear concentrate or other types of pear.

I think it's because 'perry' sounds too 'gay'

I was reading somewhere the other day that it basically all came about because the wider market didn't understand what 'perry' was, but could relate that it was a pear cider, so they called it that.
Camra definitions aside the terms are pretty synonomous in terms of what is on the market at the moment...

Well I went and bought a bottle, was tempted to grab a sixer for $12 and am now glad I only wasted $3 dollars on a single. Had a good ginger aroma when poured into glass but that was where the excitment ended. It tasted like a hybrid between a tasteless beer and a tasteless ginger beer. It wouldn't suprise me if they just put some ginger cordial in the summer lager. Waste of a clean glass really, I did drink it all as punishment for being an optimist.

Cheers

Is it a ginger beer in the sense of bundy but alcoholic or a beer with ginger in it (in the sense of that woeful shite from bluetongue)?

Sounds like the latter?

Sounds like a ratio of 1 bottle of bundy:1 tsp of XXXX ginger bleh would be best after reading that brews news article. Ginger beer is one thing, beer with ginger in it is completely another.

Now there's a blast from the past. I haven't had one of those in years and for good reason, the hangover that accompanies it has to be experienced to be believed. Only a couple of points behind a jager-bomb hangover.
