tmoreau (3624) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2016
On tap at Miller’s Ale House in Lombard, IL., and dispensed to a shaker showing a cloudy, highly pulpy, orange juice look, with a modest but fairly persistent head of silky, cream colored foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma presented a rather bright & juicy nose of grapefruit, lemon, & orange, followed by a touch of biscuit. The taste, however, was much less expressive, with a bit of citrusy tanginess that stopped well short of tart, subtle malt, some artificial-like sweetness, and low, rindy bitterness. Texture/mouthfeel was also a little thin & watery. Okay as a mild refresher, but a pricey pour at this location, especially for an average Shandy.

I had it on tap. It pours a hazy, orange color with a white head. The aroma is grapefruit and wheat. The taste is sweet grapefruit, lemon, and wheat. It was crisp and very refreshing. This is an easy-drinking beer and really hit the spot on a hot summer day.

Very simple, but tasty enough. Grapefruit and what seems like some lemony wheat. All about the citrus, though. Refreshing and simple.

355ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with a medium, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Sweet aroma of grapefruit and lemon. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, lemon and wheat malt with a slightly bitter, tart finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. An ok radler.

This has to be one of the worst beers on the entire plant. Holy crap, I think I’d rather have a Coors Light. The experience didn’t get a good start. The beer poured a very cloudy and hazy pear color with what appeared to be some unidentified floating chunks. The aroma consisted of a nice mix of citrus and urine. The flavor was so bad I had to pitch it after two swigs. I couldn’t bring myself to even remotely finish it. The flavors were sour, off-putting, disgusting, rank and vile.

Can within the confines of my library.
Pours a very hazy yellow color with a small but reasonably well retained head.

The aroma is lightly sweet with a whole bunch of grapefruit. It almost smells more like grapefruit soda than grapefruit beer... good grapefruit soda, but still...

The flavor is certainly sweet & it’s got a bunch of grapefruit juice flavor, it’s tart and pleasantly bitter with some light malt and herbal hop character.

This is fine, I mean... I wouldn’t drink much of it, but for a "Grapefruit Shandy" sure, great.
