Phillips Soda Works – Sparkmouth Ginger Ale Review
Along Side the Intergalactic Root Beer Phillips Soda Works has released the Sparkmouth, a craft brewed Ginger ale. This soda pours into the glass with a touch of fizzy carbonation that settles extremely quickly as most sodas do. The colour is very unique being nearly clear in colour. only a slight yellowish tinge can be noticed in the ale. There is also a fairly large amount of sediment that can be found in the Sparkmouth Ginger Ale. The smell is quite strong with ginger. The ginger aroma is significantly stronger than the macro competitors on the market. There is also a cane sweetness that coincides with the ginger notes. The flavour is sweeter than expected with the cane content quite noticeable. This gives almost an agave-like sweetness and creaminess that works along side the ginger content. The ginger is masked slightly by the sweetness but builds near the finish leaving a sweetened ginger taste lingering on the tongue.
