from crackedkettle.com - pours a cloudy very dark orange colour; the foam is composed of big bubbles and reduces quickly; the flowery hoppy notes are meeting some grapefruit; sweet and with a fair malt body; a good bitterness which lasts for long in the dry, hoppy and fruity finish

Copper with a white head. Grapefruit aroma, unsurprisingly of the plain grapefruit juice kind. Dry and bitter. Why make this when we have all the beautiful American hops?

Tasted at the Olde Jerusalem Tavern in Farrington (London), poured a clear amber. Smooth at first, the grapefruit not coming through too strongly, but then became very tart in the finish.

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.

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.
