Pours an amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is grapefruit, some citrus, breadiness. The taste is similar to the aroma, not a fan of this beer.

Ginger spice aroma. Brown with a reddish tinge body. Dry tart grapefruit feel on the tongue after which it seems to disappear from your palate. Hard to make up my mind if I like this one. Has a refreshing quality but a slightly odd combo of ginger and grapefruit playing with your senses.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Dark orange and clear appearance. Aroma is strong ginger, herbal and spicy. Similar flavor, with fruity notes, grapefruit and light citrus zest. Too much ginger for me.

355ml twist off bottle. Struggles to form a head whichquickly dissipates. Sadly not ruby red in color. Smells like generic shit brand ginger ale. Flavor is mild, some mineral water, grain, very little grapefruit, and only a hint of ginger. Pretty weak brew.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Adams tasting glass. The label lists the abv at 4.01% and it also gives a nice description of the beer. Appearance: The body is very clear and light to medium amber in color. It head is off white and quick fading despite a very active carbonation flowing up though the beer. After the first sip the head has completely disappeared and subsequently there is no lacing to speak of. Smell: The aroma is light overall. I get some dry spicy gingerbread notes standing out over light grainy maltiness. Taste / Palate: The flavor starts with a light grainy base malt with notes of ginger and mild white peppercorn. Very mild notes of tart grapefruit like citrus move in and lead into the dry snappy finnish. Hop favor seems very subdued but very complimentary to the Ruby Red grapefruit juice and it definitely adds to the dryness. The palate feels light and quite lively.

Crisp light copper and a touch of bronze in the body with a very thin, just slightly topping the beer with a tan glow. Aroma of super pungent fresh ginger, alcohol, soap and much more ginger - just like a soda. Light-bodied; Sharp, pungent ginger flavour at first with no body, no depth and no complexity - just plain and straight with some alcohol and astringency and no body at all. Aftertaste shows ginger and that is it - nothing else of note or description. Overall, a very poor beer - perhaps one of the worst that I’ve sampled in the past five years! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 18-July-2014 for US$,200 sampled at home down in Washington on 16-August-2014.

Draft at Fado. Mostly clear medium amber pour. Slim fizzy white head vanished quickly. Mild toasted grains. Grapefruit and ginger. Juicy body. Touch sour but no funk. Feels a bit like an herbal tea.
