3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden on color with no head. When they say it is made with grapefruit and ginger, they mean it... aroma is a mix of ginger ale and Squirt soda. Moderately sweet with the ginger lending a soft spiciness atop bittersweet grapefruit. Finish has a little cardboard and prairie grass. Heavily carbonated. Certainly feels more like a soda than a beer, but is refreshing, not overly sweet and a very decent summer thirst quencher. Undeserving of a lot of these low scores.

Too much ginger and too few hops. Dark Amber color. Little head. Some tartness from grapefruit.

Pours amber with a thin head.
Smells very pronounced of grapefruit and ginger.
Tastes of grapefruit and ginger.
I gave this a high rating because I LOVE grapefruit and go through about a gallon every two weeks. Beer plus the fruit you adore? Count me in!

A nice ginger beer aroma. Amber pour. Thin head. It’s alright and not the most well rounded ginger beer. Dry finish. It could have used a lot more flavor all around.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clear gold, no head. Aroma of Squirt soda. Taste of same. Could’ve fooled me with a can of Squirt. Light body, heavy carb....just like Squirt soda.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose. Fresh grapefruit, some light sweet malts, light ginger ale. Highly carbonated. Not bad. I’d drink this on a hot day near the Rio Grande.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint but nice aroma of grapefruit, ginger, hops, spice and grass. Taste is a little boring but still enjoyable. Cool ginger flavor! Finishes sticky and slightly fruity. A for interesting. C for effort.

A perfect summer beer. Low alcohol. Refreshing. Grapefruit and ginger flavored are noticeable but not overpowering.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, short lived off white head, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is grapefruit, light cereal malts, no hops, balance to the grapefruit.......taste is slightly sweet, with heavy grapefruit, minimal hops, light cereal, finishing with hints of ginger.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a light grapefruit dominated beer, that is almost grapefruit soda pop. The base beer is quite nondeScript. It is really a fruit beer. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5
