Good afternoon, my fellow Midweek Drink readers! Last month has proven to be a milestone for people; a milestone of self-control and self-improvement of body, mind and soul. But those 31 days could well have been the first steps of reinventing a new You; a You that decides to cut down to the odd drink or two a week - or indefinitely.
And so whatever you choose to do, we wish you the very best and raise a toast (alcohol-free, of course) to your future!
For today’s choice of beverage, I will be reviewing Baltika’s non-alcoholic Ginger.
A brief history of Baltika Brewery
Baltika Brewery was founded in 1990 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Since 1996, the brewery has been No.1 in the Russian Market; has sold 34.6 million hectolitres of beer, and in 2008, the brewery eventually became part of the International Carlsberg Group. Baltika Brewery is also considered to be the largest brewery in Europe.
Three senses and a beverage
The reason I chose to review this beer is two things: It’s ideal for this type of weather and I like ginger infused beverages. So let’s see how this goes, shall we?
Baltika Ginger comes in a 330ml glass bottle and is non-alcoholic (0.0%). As I pull the cap of the top of the bottle, I quickly hover my nose over to see if I will be welcomed with a strong aroma of ginger - but it remained very subtle. The colour of this beverage has a clear, dark cameral colour with very little carbonation rising to the top.
Although it lacks the highly-active carbonation as most beverages do, it does though still have that thirst-quenching crispness to it. For the taste, the sweet ginger overpowers the hops, leaving a dry aftertaste, but what it does lack - which I was looking forward too - is the warm, fuzzy feeling you get on your chest.
