Alcoholic ginger beer

Winter leads me to drink.

In previous years I've found myself buying stout but lately I've been looking over the ciders that have replaced beer on the shelves at my Woolies.

I bought an alcoholic ginger beer called Frank's because it said it had a genuine flavour. Turned out the flavour was beer with some ginger syrup. There was another brand with a redheaded bloke on the label which also seemed to be gingered beer.

So I started looking very carefully at the labels and found this one called John Hollows to be a proper alcoholic ginger beer. Which may be why they say to be wary of imitations on the label, which calls their recipe 'botanical'.

The flavour balances sweet and dry and I found it to be very moorish but the sugar content felt like one was enough.
