Asahi Ginger Draft is not ginger beer

February 16, 2009

I saw this Ginger Draft in the supermarket at the weekend, and bought it thinking that it might be something like ginger beer.

Asahi Ginger Draft

Rather disappointingly, it isn’t – it’s just another Happoshu. And more disappointingly, it doesn’t even taste of ginger.

I need to memorise the kanji for Happoshu (発泡酒) to make sure I don’t inadvertently buy it again.
