Old Jamaica Rhubarb & Ginger Ale (Asda) By @SpectreUK

Old Jamaica Rhubarb & Ginger Ale

I generally have a diet Old Jamaica beer every evening to settle my stomach after dinner. I do love diet Jamaica Ginger Beer. It's got quite a kick to it. Ginger Ale generally doesn't have much of a kick as it's ginger flavoured carbonated water, rather than fermented ginger beer. However I have tried Old Jamaica Ginger Ale, and I can say that it's the most fiery ginger ale I've tried to date. So Old Jamaica are doing something right there.

I do love rhubarb. I used to go it in the garden and have rhubarb juice made for me by Cinabar. It was super sweet and tasty. This Old Jamaica Rhubarb & Ginger Ale is very pink in colour. It's 20 calories per 100ml, with 4.9g of sugar, which I'll frustratingly have to factor into my calorie counting.

There was a spicy sweet rhubarb aroma on opening the bottle and quite a fizz. On taste this Old Jamaica Rhubarb & Ginger Ale has an almost saccharin sweet taste of rhubarb, and with a warming ginger spice at the back of flavour. This super sweet rhubarb flavour was almost a little too sweet for me. I liked it, but it wasn't worth the 'hidden' calories that a diet drink can alleviate.
