$3 bottle, served at Standard Market. I’d put this one down as a good summer shandy. Under the cap, I get just a whiff of grapefruit that could’ve come from the hop bill of some American Pale Ale (I had a taster of Sixpoint Resin for comparision, but they’re nothing a like). Beer is slightly muddy brown complexion, but pretty cleanly filtered. Grapefruit taste is a bit stronger,. Mild beer base makes this more like a shandy, letting the slight tartness stand out. Still, by blending with a fruit that’s similar to certain hop profiles, we get something better than the standard lemonade-weakened shandy.

bitter, citrus, ginger, I usually hate ginger but the ginger taste was the only thing I liked in this beer.

Pershing (524) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2016
light amber with a thin head the fizzes away quickly into nothing. Slight citrus aroma with some grain. Thin watery body with a little more citrus flavor. Crisp refreshing finish. Not bad but not good either.

Another fruit beer that falls short in flavor and freshness. The ginger kick doesn’t add anything and frankly is annoying.
