In Heaven, There Is No Beer

So last night I tried some Hitachino Nest Ginger Brew (Japanese beer brewed with ginger).

Eh.. didn't seem too terribly gingery to me. I've had a ginger beer before (home-brewed, not commercial) that lived up to the promise of tasting like a spicy soda-type "ginger beer" but actually being beer. This though? Eh.. reminded me a lot of chicory stout. Nice label, though?

Mind, in trying to find the above image of the bottle I had last night, I found another one with a happy Mr.Ginger on it (..looking disconcertingly like a mandrake root -- "MandraKola! It's a scream!") So I'm half suspecting I may've had a less gingery blend produced for those who expect it to taste at least 80% like beer.
