Wow, this is horrible. Smells - grapefruit and ginger. Copper penny color with no real head. Carbonation bubbles throughout. This does not taste good. Watery. Ginger. Grapefruit. Weak lager. The original Shiner Bock is not the greatest, but I always have a soft spot for it. This might have just ripped that soft spot out and spat on it. This is truly an unpleasant beer.

Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has ginger, very light grapefruit, and not much more. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation average. Flavor really has a ginger kick, mild citrus, wet herbs, and mild bitterness. Somewhat like a ginger ale hybrid.

Can. Clear pinkish gold pour with tannish head. Aroma of ginger and malt, like a ginger beer. This beer is quite bizarre. Ginger and grapefruit dominate. Bitter finish. I bought 6, but that will likely be it.

Light, fruity, gingery. Not a "real" beer, but a tasty summer beverage. Sometimes the low alcohol is handy a well.

Pours reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, ginger and more citrus. Taste is tangy sweet. Medium bodied with some stickiness on the finish.

Thanks to Tina for this. This is a pure summer, donít think to much about it, look Iím a ginger grapefruit juice with beer sort of drink. Tastes much how you would imagine but thinner palate. If it is hot this is a good idea, if not well maybe not. I enjoyed it for what it was. Serving: Can

6/1/14. From bottle. Amber with a thin fizzy white head. Refreshing, but one is more than enough. The fruit flavors are just too overwhelming.

My second favorite Shiner beer, next to the FM 1966 Farmhouse Ale. However, with the added ginger and grapefruit, itís really refreshing hot summer day dark beer. Love it!

I donít know what this is but it taste like lemon peppercorn. Pours golden amber with ok head and lacing. Ginger. Light sour and sweet finish. On tap at DC Summerfest.
