Greatly Horrible New Taste
I have loved Bundaberg Ginger Beer all my life and have sometimes paid huge amounts to find it all over the world as an Expat, but after buying 4 cases of Bundaberg’s ‘great new taste’ I am devastated. Whoever approved the new recipe has some serious questions to answer. Rotten taste with no respect for why people love (wait loved) it, the GINGER tang. Unless the old taste comes back, I will never buy another bottle again! (Reviewing from London, UK)
Purchased in June 2020 for A$18.00.
Awful cheap new taste
Have always loved this beer when hot and thirsty. Just grabbed one from the fridge, opened and glugged away and what is this??? It tastes cheap and awful! Vanilla...with ginger.. really? Bundaberg, what have you done? After years, I won't be buying this again.

Great New Taste is a Big Miss
Previously a 30-year Bundberg customer. Just bought a new case of 24. Got home to "Great New Taste" . Sugar, sugar, sugar. No ginger, no spice. This is un-Australian, it tastes like Pepsi - what a shame that a great Aussie product is ruined! Did they ever read about the disaster that was New Coke?

This is a 'gentler' ginger beer, it doesn't feel as sharp as others so that's my missing star. I quite like that full on whoosh to hit the spot.
It's enjoyable whether it's summer or winter, it's just an easy drink to have. People have commented on the high sugar content but I've compared it with two other brands I have and this one has the lowest. I didn't get an unpleasant after taste that some leave.
I would say this is my 3rd favourite ginger beer and having become quite the connoisseur on them, its third of a long list! I would definitely buy it again.

Great on hot summer days, but the sugar level...OMG
a friend intro ducted my family to ginger beer. At first I thought it was ok, then I really got a taste for it...hocked! One day I was reading the nutritional label, and found it to contain 50% of the daily intake of sugar...couldn't believe it. So now I have alittle, as I can't afford the calories. Mixing it into mineral water is a great option.
I am concerned by the number of people who say they have changed brands or cut themselves due to the Bundaberg Ginger Beer lids. Pull the ring straight out first then lift to peel off lid. This should solve the opening issues. Oh! And invert the bottle before opening to redistribute the sediment. Hope this helps!
