Head to Head – Fever vs Trader Joes

I enjoy ginger – ginger ale, ginger beer, ginger brew. I tend to accumulate random bottles and things to try.  My secret backlog had Trader Joes Triple Ginger Brew and Fever Tree Ginger Ale. Does anyone else think “head-to-head taste-off”?  I certainly didn’t… who wants to mix awesome flavors.  I want to drink every incredible drop and taste every incredible ginger note.

I had chilled the Trader Joes Triple Ginger Brew for an hour.  I popped the top and poured it into the glass. I took a sip, and I didn’t take another. A simple reason caused me to reject the Brew – Honey, Lime from Concentrate.  They overpowers the Ginger.  It killed the Flavor.  I do not recommend it to drink straight, if you use it as part of a mix, it might be OK.

With the taste of the Brew in my mouth, I needed to wash away the flavor profile.  I opened the Fever Tree Ginger Ale – Delicious.  It’s a subtle ginger ale, and is nice to sip. Can you guess which ginger drink won?    As you can see below, Fever Tree won my taste palette and saved the day.
