Reed's Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer

Reed's Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer

A trip to Hogsmeade isn't something I'm able to do on a regular basis. I wish I did have the time, but my life is so busy. You see I opened a wand shop in Diagon Alley after Ollivander's closed down. Okay, yes I know he didn't just decide to close down the shop. If I were kidnapped like he was I would have probably closed too. Anyways, so I own a wand shop and that takes up most of my time.

Yesterday I was lamenting to a customer about how I hadn't been able to get a butter beer in a long time due to my long hours of work. They told me to wait a minute and came back with this wonderful looking bottle. I didn't know they started bottling butter beer, which goes to show you how much I get out. I wasted no time in opening the bottle and the delicious butter beer smell wafted into the air.

And the taste you ask? Oh man, the taste is perfect! If you've never had butter beer before it tastes like a butterscotch candy (Werther's Original to be exact) in liquid form. So delicious and so sweet. I can already feel my teeth forming cavities. I loved the bottle so much I asked my new friend to buy me four more. I gave them a free wand in exchange. Maybe I shouldn't have done that since a wand costs around 5 Galleons and five bottles of butter beer is only a couple of Sickles. Oh well, it was worth it.

Reed's Natural Energy Elixer

Reed's Natural Energy Elixer

Reed's, you never let us down in making a delicious drink. I picked this up today instead of coffee. I haven't had much luck (in the ways of taste) when it comes to "natural" energy drinks. It's naturally caffeinated with green tea, which is nice and gives it that mellow green tea flavor. There's also a bunch of different fruit juices mixed in that make this quite a delicious drink.

What puts this over the top is the 23,000 mg of fresh ginger root it has inside. That is not a typo, 23 THOUSAND milligrams. The next ingredient is green tea with 1,000 mg. While it doesn't have the burn of ginger beer, it's a great ginger taste throughout that I wish more ginger drinks had.

Reed's Cherry Ginger Brew

Reed's Cherry Ginger Brew

I put off drinking this for a while because I was expecting it to be super sugary cherry pop with ginger in it, which sounds terrible. I should have known better and put more faith in Reeds. This is a really good ginger ale, made with real ginger root. It's just lightly flavored with cherry juice concentrate. It's not random sweetness labeled cherry at all. There's an ever so slight burn from the ginger, but nothing that would bother a normal drinker. Do yourself a favor and grab a bottle.

Reed's Ginger Ale

Reed's Ginger Ale

This is fairly strange. It's a ginger ale made with real ginger, so it has a very mild burn. You may be saying, "Well that's not strange." Well let me finish Captain Impatience. The weird part is that it's kind of fruity. It has lemon and lime in it. The fruit that stands out most is pineapple. It has an initial ginger flavor that fades into a fairly strong pineapple aftertaste. The fruitiness and honey in it make it way sweeter than I'm used to ginger ale being. It's not horrible, but it's just not what I'm looking for in this type of beverage.

Reed's Ginger Beer

Reed's Ginger Beer

It's a ginger beer. The second sit was actually better than the first. Now that I've found Goya ginger beer, everything else is kind of put into perspective. This is more of the ginger flavored brew than just a kick in the butt. If you like the flavor of genuine ginger, this is perfect for you.

There is a longer "burn" with this drink than some of the others I've had. Perhaps it's because I just had a (rather good) quesadilla and it's the ginger annihilating or neutralizing my stomach. Thanks ginger dudes for making my stomach not hurt, not that I was in fear of it doing so.

This was the "extra" ginger brew. I also have a "premium" in the fridge which might be tomorrow's lil' endeavor.

Reed's Raspberry Ginger Brew

Reed's Raspberry Ginger Brew

Reed's knows their way around ginger root. They always know the perfect amount to add to each drink. In this raspberry ginger ale, the raspberry is the driving force. At the end of each sip, the ginger grabs the wheel and takes you on a quick ride around the block. If you're looking for a quality raspberry ginger ale, put that Schweppes back on the shelf, and grab yourself some Reeds.

Reed's Spiced Apple Brew

Reed's Spiced Apple Brew

I think someone at the Reed company opened up their blender on Thanksgiving ever and dumped all of their delicious leftover desserts and some carbonation in it. This is possibly my favorite drink that I've had in years. It's the quintessential autumn drink in my eyes. Whenever I have it I just want to be huddled around a campfire on a chilly night trying to keep warm. It's a carbonated apple cider with ginger, cinnamon and a whole bunch of other spices mixed in, but it doesn't taste like an air freshener like you might expect. I wish I could still find the smaller bottles of it. For now all I have available is the large bottles, and I have no self-control and I drink it all in one sitting.

Reed's China Cola

Reed's China Cola

This is a soda I try at least once a year because I keep hoping I'll like it more than I do. It's not a bad cola. In fact it lacks the bite that most cola's have which is nice. The aftertaste is what I'm not crazy about. The bottle says it has herbs and spices in it, and that is what is probably contributing the interesting aftertaste. It sort of reminds me of that holiday Pepsi Spice that was available a few years ago that had a nutmeg aftertaste. Although, I loved Pepsi Spice and I'm not a huge fan of China Cola.
