Review: Krest Ginger Ale


Kicking off our reviews of the international beverages offered for sampling at Coca-Cola’s Club Cool attraction at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park is Krest Ginger Ale.

Poking around the ‘net a little, Krest Ginger Ale is also noted as being “a popular drink in shebeens (informal bars)”. In any case, I obtained a sample from the fountain using the provided Coke-branded cups.

Very tiny cups!

It has all the attributes you’d come to expect from a ginger ale, similar in makeup to Canada Dry and the like. Yellowish color, strong scent, bubbly. In the case of our sample, we found the drink to be clean and sweet, very crisp. I personally wonder if the fountain samples found at Club Cool were true to their original mixtures, namely using the local sweeteners like sugar vs. high fructose corn syrup. My assumption is yes.

Overall, I very much enjoyed Krest Ginger Ale. Very good.
