Taste like a bud Weiser mixed with grapefruit. Should have used a darker beer with the grapefruit. Left alot of after taste. I usually love schells beer, but this beer really let me down. Bought a 12 pk and canít get anyone to take more than one bottle and usually they can only take 2 sips before they pour it out.

Yellow pour with a 2 finger, soapy, bright white head. Aroma is citrus flesh, spicy and floral hops, and mineral notes. Flavor is sweet grapefruit, spicy hops, bready yeast, and a little grapefruit bitterness and salt to the finish. Light body, watery, but somewhat slick, syrupy feel, light, but spritzy carbonation. Not my sort of thing, but not terrible.

A decent grapefruit beer. Mild citrus aromas. Flavors are sweet fake grapefruit. A nice summer quencher.. But a bit too artificial tasting.

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Can. Clear yellow pour, medium carbonation and an aroma of artificial grapefruit/Squirt soda. Flavor is also similar to a grapefruit soda(overly sweet artificial fruit), much sweeter than Iíd really expect in a beer. "Meh" is generous. Skip this one.

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.
