Aroma is that of a ginger beer with some citric undertones. Not extremely powerful. Appearance is light golden with minimal head and no lacing. Palate is carbonated and lighter. Interesting aroma and refreshing, yes. Taste however, is mediocre at best.

Pours a clear amber color with a 1 finger head that doesn’t last. Smells of grapefruit, ginger, malts and light hops. Tastes of grapefruit, ginger and light malts. Could use some more hops to balance the tartness from the grapefruit. Nice clean finish. Interesting brew!

Bottle. A- Ginger. A- Copper color, clear liquid, off white head. T- Ginger, spices, subtle grapefruit. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spicy finish. O- Was this a Gosling’s Ginger beer in disguise? I was hoping for a lot more grapefruit but could hardly taste it. Wasn’t a bad beer, but basically tasted like a ginger beer. Mixed a little vodka with it and a squeeze of lime and makes a nice version of a Moscow Mule! That makes me enjoy this even more!

I really loved the grapefruit and ginger flavor in this beer. It is a special beer that gets better the more you drink it.

Light, crisp. A little bit of malt, citrus zest, and spice. Still, thin and a bit artificial. Maybe good in a hot summer environment.
