Ginger ale is a carbonated soft drink flavoured with ginger in either the Golden-style, closer to the ginger beer original, credited to the American Thomas Cantrell; or the (Pale) Dry-style created by Canadian John McLaughlin, which is a paler drink with a much milder ginger-flavour to it.
Famous quotes containing the word ale:
“Back and side go bare, go bare,
Both foot and hand go cold;
But belly, God send thee good ale enough;
Whether it be new or old!”
—William Stevenson (1530?1575)
