nice light amber, minimal head. i was expecting far more citrus. the bitterness is there, and it is a perfectly decent beer, but i expected more grapefruityness from a grapefruit beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5l bottle from Beer Bier, Budapest. Hazy golden orange color with medium frothy white head. Interesting citrus aroma - grapefruit of course, with some caramel malt. The combination of the dry bitter grapefruit and the sweet caramel malt is very delicious. The hops cooperate with the fruit aroma. It’s difficult to find out what makes the beer bitter, the hops or the grapefruit. Light bitter taste. Soft to medium body with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Malty, fruity finish. Very delicious beer, refreshing, easy-drink. Real fruity feeling. It’s a well-made fruit beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500, capped, very cool flask-y medicine bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber with no head or lace. Big buttery nose showing some hop-like grapefruit that seems to have no particular connection to the actual fruit. Creamy medium body with light carb. Butter and resin on the mid palate. Forgettable and worth avoiding.

Jerusalem Tavern ...
A: Orangish copper... A thin creamy head
T: Grapefruit is lovely when balanced against the traditional bitterness of the beer... a great blend that was unique for me
M: Smooth... medium bodied...
O: Drinkable, but after a while the grapefruit needs to be countered with a more hoppy beer

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold and orange hued amber with a medium to large dense white head. Pungent cheesy aromas, malt and citrus, a big amount of ranch dressing, and fresh mozzarella.. Medium bodied, sweet, toast, caramel, a bit of malt and more grain. Finishes with a touch of caramel, a bit of biterrness, and a large amount of disappointment. Starts well, slows down and gets sad. Very buttery. Kind of ugly in that way.
