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, it’s really refreshing hot summer day dark beer. Love it!

I don’t 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.

On tap. Aroma had some citrus, and spice. Taste had medium strong notes of the ginger, but I didn’t really get much of the citrus or grapefruit there. Seemed like an average ginger beer.

ZacM612 (120) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Amber color with slight red tint. Pours with a thin white fizzy head. Weak aroma with some sweetness. Flavor of citrus but not overpowering grapefruit. A refreshing summer beer, but not great.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured in a reddish shade of gold, small head (left quickly) and no lacing. Aroma of ginger and yeast. Taste is mostly ginger accompanied with some citrus notes. Refreshing beer, easy to drink but nothing truly great here.

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 copper golden color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, tart, light citrus, zesty. Flavor is tart fruit and malt. Interesting. Light body. Easy going beer.
