Asked what I wanted for a gift for Christmas 2014, I had one response “Barr’s Ginger Beer“. I hadn’t yet tried the soft drink, and I have had it on my Ginger Beer Bucket List for some time. I’ve done the request search for Ginger Beer on Amazon.com and searched various soft drink review sites, and compiled my list, checked it twice, and had it approved by various gift givers.
On December 24th, I opened the one present I was allowed to open, and found a pack of 24 Barr’s Ginger Beer – the Scottish Soft Drink’s amazing soft drink. As a side note, I have to say the packaging is very cool – all bear 🙂
As I have found with all great packaging, they tell a story, and offer a suggestion, and include the best news…. Natural Ginger Flavorings. There is also a nice surprise that they add lemon juice too.
I would love to say I followed my protocol for testing – two cups – one with ice, one with out. I just popped the top, and took a sip.
My initial thoughts are – smooth… wait for it…. spicy. It’s a pleasant feeling. Some ginger beers can be slightly harsh, this ginger beer was smooth and delicious. Barr’s is going to to the top of my list of Ginger Beer – 10 out of 10.
