Crabbie's Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer
I know, I know. It's not technically beer. Still, this "flavoured alcoholic beverage" came from the beer section of the liquor store and looked pretty good to me, so I figured I'd give it a review. Besides, it looked for all the world like a pale lager--clear straw colour with a white head and moderate carbonation. It's produced by John Crabbie & Co. of Glasgow, Scotland. It comes in a 500mL bottle and weighs in at 4%. The bottle recommended serving Crabbie's over ice with lemon, but I opted for the brew straight up at first and added ice and lemon half way through.
