3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden with a touch of ruby. Normal head volume, poor retention and no lacing.
Nice vibrant light nose of light sweet grapefruit over biscuit. As it warms, ginger comes to the forefront.
Light body with a texture similar to water. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish.
With more intensity and complexity the flavor profile would be outstanding. Light grapefruit and ginger roll across the biscuit base. Middle bitterness is only a hint. The finish does deliver a nice burst of ginger and a nice spicy heat. Beef this beer up and it is an outstanding contender. As is, itís a good lawnmower beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very acidic citrus taste and light on any beer flavor. Grapefruit aroma was the best part. Finished drinking it because a friend was very excited to hand it to me. Bottle.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber color, with a non-existent head. This essentially looks like slightly carbonated green tea.
Has quite a subtle smell with the grapefruit being surprisingly subdued, at least considering my expectations. The label also notes that there is some ginger added - which is definitely noticeable. Overall a gentle, yet easily appreciated scent.
While I thought the ginger was fairly subtle in the smell, it utterly dominates the taste. The grapefruit is noticeable, but does not steal the show as it is subdued by the ginger, besides making an appearance a second or two.
The carbonation is quite heavy, with both the hops and malts being lacking. Easy to drink, hard to love.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle- Pours mostly clear golden with a crackly white head that reduces immediately leaving a flat looking beer. Aroma is fake citrus fruit, generic beer, sweet. The taste is odd citrus with cigarette ash, weird beer, grapefruit is there, but tastes fake, ginger seems like it doesnít blend well with the beer at all. Poorly made.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma is strong on ginger. The taste is ginger with some grapefruit. Itís crisp and somewhat thin. Itís a bit too sweet. Itís not bad. Itís a little too sweet to be a very refreshing summer beer though.

12 oz. bottle. Aroma of ginger. Taste of ginger and grapefruit. I donít like grapefruit anyway, and now I donít like it in my beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Capital Market. Medium amber/brownish in color. Nose is mostly ginger, with a bit of sweet fruitiness. Light ginger with a little bit of grapefruit juice. Some graininess as well. Not too exciting.
