3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Aromatised with grapefruits first and real ale second in this case. Looking a cloudy amber with a smallish white cover that leaves quickly. Growing floral and indeed grapefruity. Still bodied, medium in size and with a good grip thanks to the rather crisp nature of the grapefruits. You must feel for grapefruit if you go for this one and you should not be let down.

Bottled. Golden colour, small head. Aroma is barnyard and wood. Flavour is mainly cooked vegetables with hints of grapefruit. Also some malts. Aftertaste is dryish hops along with grapefruit. The fruity hints are the best, but the rest is not too nice.

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.

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.
