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

patrick767 (3400) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2014
bottle - This beer has a very small, quickly disappearing head and a mild ginger aroma. It’s bubbly and sweet with a ginger led flavor accented by mild citrus. Light bodied. Just okay.

Catching up on some old ratings from Untappd -- First rated on 26 May 2011. Had this a few times and my recalling evokes nothing but pleasant memories. I always drank this beer in sunny and hot Florida, and that is really what this beer is suited for. It is very effervescent and refreshing. Great beach beer.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2014
12oz can. Poured a golden color with a larger sized head. Yuck ... lots of ginger and spiciness that just didn’t agree with my tastes. A few sips and down the drain.

kevinator (716) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2014
This was more like a soda than anything. Strong ginger ale aroma with some citrus. It had a pretty clear copper color with a regular head. Highly carbonated and light palate. More of the same in the way of taste. Ginger soda with some grapefruit notes. A little sweet but not very beer centric. I think I’ll leave this one alone.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle on 07/02/2011 courtesy of MaltDawg. Clear golden body with a small frothy white head. Sweet ginger aroma with some light fruit. Ginger and fruit flavor with some dry graininess in the background. Medium body with high carbonation.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Appearance: Orange with copper highlights under a fizzy seltzer-esque head that fades into nothing. No foam, no lace, no collar – nothing. Swirls with nothing.
Nose: Sweet rolls and Hawaiian rolls. Sweet ruby red grapefruit juice followed by generic citric esters in the back. Candied lemon and grapefruit cheweable candies. More sweet than tart.
Palate: Prickly spritzy mouthfeel makes the top of my tongue tingle. Watery pink lemonade and watery ruby red grapefruit juice. Very quick and miniscule finish of generic citric rind bitterness. Generic white crackers underneath.
Final Thoughts: Nothing special. It’s supposed to be brewed with some kind of Texas Rio Red Grapefruit Juice and ginger but unfortunately the grapefruit is watery and the ginger is non-existent. Moving on.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Dull umber hue, ginger ale soda aroma, taste, sweetness. No evidence of grapefruit, let alone the reputed Cascade hops. Drain pour.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled: unk Got real excited for this, I love grapefruit raddlers, maybe this can be my summer 2013 beer?! Pours a copper ale with brilliant clarity and no foam. Smells like sugar, some grapefruit (way too sweet), some pear and a little english malt. Pretty unimpressed so far. Tastes like a hot dog with some artificial sweetener and a little grapefruit - horrible. Thin with moderate carb and an off dry finish. That is a shitty beer.
