Bundaberg Ginger Beer

Bundaberg Ginger BeerWhen I toured New Zealand, I discovered Bundaberg Ginger Beer (an Australian import). The ginger flavor is very strong in this non-alcoholic, carbonated soft drink - it even has bits of Australian ginger pulp floating in it. I like ginger sweets (but not ginger in savory dishes - savory dishes with ginger are fine, but the ginger itself is something I can't stand) so it wasn't surprising that I'd enjoy the Bundaberg Ginger Beer. What was surprising was that I thought it was one of the best ginger ales I had ever tasted. The sweetness (from cane sugar) is perfectly balanced with the spiciness of the ginger. The bottle is also interesting. The cap is popped off by pulling on a tab that practically rips the metal cap in two. Needless to say, you'll be finishing the bottle in just one sitting. Luckily, I've managed to find some at my local Beverages & More! (about $5 for a pack of 4 375 mL bottles).
