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.

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.

Pours a crystal clear golden color with a fizzy white head. Faint grapefruit on the nose. Wet mouthfeel. Thin, fake grapefruit flavor.

An alright beer, but I donít think that grapefruit and ginger mix very well. The ginger seems to over power the grapefruit so quickly that any harmony is disrupted. With that being said, it is refreshing and not offensive by any means.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of slightly tart grapefruit, lemon, lime, ginger, pear, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of grapefruit juice, ginger, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of slightly tart grapefruit, lemon, lime, ginger, pear, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Slight herbal spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon, lime, ginger, pear, cracker, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a very short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of grapefruit juice, ginger, and pale malt flavors; with a good malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium boded; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish after the finish as expected of 4%. Overall this is a good spiced blonde ale style. All around good balance and solid robustness of grapefruit juice, ginger, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2015 Mom picked up a variety case while visiting my Uncle in Texas. This is the best so far. A summer brew with a hint of grapefruit and ginger. Kinda tastes like a Ruby Red Squirt, just a beer instead of pop.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with thin white head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells of an odd but inoffensive blend of lager yeast, ginger, and mild grapefruit. Tastes like it smells with a slightly tart light to medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but not good either.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of a gingerbeer shandy with a hint of grapefruit. Pours a reddish orange with no head and minimal carbonation. Tastes like a gingerbeer shandy with a medium to light body and a chalky aftertaste.
