2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 1) Reading 2007. Mucky orange haziness topped with a slick of bath foam suds. Smothering Terry’s Chocolate orange snout. Very fruity and bittersweet, but more bitter orange/mandarin flavours than out-and-out grapefruit. A bit sickly and unsubtle, but finishable all the same.
2) The Baron, 07/11/12. Grapefruit aroma: ridiculous. Tastes like a grapefruit flavoured soft drink. Hint of nut and biscuit. Doesn’t matter what it looks like. Pleasant tasting, piss poor beer. They couldn’t upsell me a pint at £1.49.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from The Rake, Southwark. Read about the St Peters beers in a book and thought I’d give them a go. Didn’t realise it was the grapefruit one from across the bar but before I could say anything the cap was off, D’oh! Poured amber with no head. Both aroma and flavour are dominated by hops, some malt notes and a slight hint of grapefruit. Thin and watery bitter hop finish...Upon completion of my rate I asked the perplexed barman to dispose of the still full glass of the vile liquid...one whiff and he quickly concurred.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange blonde, hazy. Grapefruit in the grassy aroma. Grassy bitter, even a bit urine-like earthy flavor with grapefruit. Absolutely dry. Thin, watery texture, but a milky aftertaste. Nasty by-flavors prevent it from being a good beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Air dispense cask, Jerusalem Tavern. Clear, dark gold, bubbly filmy off-white head. Sharp grapefruit nose, lemony. Citrus overpowers the beer bit here, and tastes like you’re drinking some kind of grapefruit cordial. Touch of hops in the mouth, but nasty and grassy. Not really tangy as I expected, but dull. OK I suppose, but wouldn’t again, unless I develop a taste for floor cleaner...

500ml bottle bought at The Jerusalem Tavern. Clear golden coloured. Slowly diminishing bubbly white foam. Powerful aroma of grapefruit. Also a distinctive grapefruit flavour. Fruity and hoppy character. Rather abrupt finish. Very refreshing after a long sunny day walking along the Regent’s canal in London (19.09.2006).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Bottled at Haket, Gothenburg. Clear, pale golden beer with a large-bubbled white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma with some grainy notes. The flavor is lemony and piney, with hops and fruits. Medium to thin mouthfeel and bitter finish. Not bad, just not that interesting. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7. (060824)
Bottle, thx to tarjei. A clear, golden beer with a small, off-white head. Grapefruit peel in the aroma, not much else actually, just a hint of a bitter in the background. Strange, but quite nice. The flavor gives the same impression, only it’s the pink grapefruit, not the yellow. Fine bitterness in the finish. Medium body and ok co2 level. A refreshing beer, but too focused on the grapefruit. Gets a bit boring and challenging after a while. (081108)
