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.

Bottle. Very disappointing. The description sounded wonderful - crisp lager with grapefruit and spices - but the beer tasted nothing like that. I love Shiner Bock - used to drink a lot of it at after-work gatherings at an ice house in Houston - but this beer hardly rates. The flavor was very flat and I tasted no citrus at all and just a faint hint of spice. Basically it was bland.

Quite sweet, and drinkable, but not so annoying, some aromatic spots and interesting looks there.

Bottle--itís not a drain pour, but with a little work they can get there. Soft, well, ruby color with short lasting head. Some fruit aroma that I would even say was grapefruit. Taste was tart with no malt or hops. Tangy and undesirable finish. Total Wine.

Crisp and refreshing for sure. The tart and mild sweetness make for a tasty combo. Great session beer and very drinkable after a long day at work. I do wish for a bit more malt character but overall, good beer.
