Stone’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer $25/6-pack (330ml)
This has a cloudy, light straw appearance; the bouquet and flavour are big on fresh, vibrant ginger and the palate is intense and penetrating. Sweetness is there but not excessive, well balanced by the spicy effect of the ginger, which lingers satisfyingly long. A refreshing drink for the hot weather. (3.5 per cent alcohol; crown cap).
