These are the 4 common ones in my neck of the woods. Other people might have some different brands.

I'm going with Vernors. It has the strongest ginger taste.

I only really know Schwepps and Canada Dry by name, and went with the former.  Canada Dry is a bit too sweet, if my recollection is right.  I really only drink Ginger Ale on airplanes.

I have a marked preference for Canada Dry. :wub:  To me, its flavour is sharper and less sweet than other brands I've tried.  I haven't tasted all of the ginger ales on this list, though.

I picked Vernor's for the same reason as prolix - I like that it's very gingery!   They don't have it near us, but when we visit the Midwest I stock up on my guilty pleasure!

Schweppe's has a weird oily synthetic mouthfeel.

Seagram is unoffensive, but it's timid... even meek.

Vernor's tastes like something else altogether.

Canada Dry plays it right down the middle. It gets my vote.

I love Canada Dry.  I find it very refreshing.  
I don't like Seagrams.  It has a weird aftertaste.
Schweppe's is OK.  
Is Vernor's even ginger ale?

Awesome ginger ale drink !  We went to a restaurant in Kitty Hawk NC once and instead of a Shirley Temple (my daughters favorite, lol) they had a Shirley Shark!  The grenadine was in a plastic shark like this photo, only the drink was ginger ale colored, (not this crappy blue)  so the shark blood looked even better.  It was the best !!
