Pours a very pale yellow color with a big loose-ish fluffy head.

The aroma is bright & doughy at the same time. Itís got a good bit of fruity aroma with a lot of great citrus zest in the nose.

The flavor is odd, doughy and peppery with a light grapefruit soda character. Itís lightly bitter and not overly sweet... but certainly has some fruity sweetness but some balancing tartness about it.

I totally get why people donít like this, I like it fine enough though.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a thin bright white colored head. The nose is unmistakably grapefruit with hints of dough. This tastes mostly of sweet grapefruit, but itís watered down with a pale lager. There is a bit of a candy like finish of sugar. Lightly carbonated and fruity up front with each drink, this actually isnít a bad summer type beer.

Too sweet for my taste... Good aroma. Lacks a bite. Smooth taste. Good summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Okay, guilty pleasure. Doesnít really resemble beer, but itís a tasty beverage. Sweet citrus nose and taste. Lime soda / lemonade like.

Way too sweet. Not a real grapefruit taste more candy like. No taste of beer..just sickly sweet.

I judge these on how well they mix with gin. Tangueray specifically.IT has too pervasive of a buttery malt character.

Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota and sampled at GTMW 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light golden straw colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of Squirt soft drink. Grapefruit, lime, and white soda with a hint of floral hops and a touch of golden grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, more golden grain malt flavor than detected in aroma, Finish is quite sweet, with flavors of lemonade, Grafís 50/50 (Squirt like soda), and golden grain malt. More liquid body in this than I am used to in a summer shandy, but still rememberable.

16 oz. can pours a clear straw yellow with a moderate fizzy white head. Aroma is light grapefruit. Flavor is sweet, with malt liquor in the background. I was hoping for less candy/soda and more grapefruit bitterness. Body is light with very lively carbonation.Enjoyable on a 90 degree Minnesota afternoon, but not a beer Iím likely to try again.

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Straw color. Strong grapefruit aroma. Sweeter than expected. Wishing more of the grapefruit bitterness came through. Sugary citrus is how it tastes. Ok, but too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz Can. Was parched on a hot day. Nice bright grapefruit aroma enticed me to take a big pull. Grapefruit up front, a bit tasty then immediately regretted it. Mid palate through the finish became less fruity, and more candy flavoring with that distinct malt liquor taste. That bitter malt taste wouldnít go away and couldnít finish it. Not balanced.
