fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2011
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Muddy light amber color. Mild grapefruit and dried apricots aroma. Semi-dry mouthfeel, light malt aroma, with some candies, dry grapefruit and dry orange peel; ordinary bitterness. Quite weird, it reminds of candied orange peels.

saxo (13851) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2012
Tap @ Malone’s. Medium head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are grape fruit, caramel, malt and hops. Slightly citric finish.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle. Medium orange amber, quite hazy, with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh orange and caramel. Flavour is sweet orange candy and light caramel. Shandy-ish. Not my favourite. Grapefruit should be bitter and less sweet.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle 330ml LCBO
Aroma: malty with off fruity bitterness, backing grapefruit freshness. Backing with fishier fruity hoppy blend.
Look: thick haze on darker amber. Light top, white.
Taste: medium lighter bodied with thin walls. Lower carbonation. Plenty of unrefined sugars with caramel approach. Mild grapefruit behind. Too sweet to finish.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
[Bottle (330ml).] Pours a bubbly copper-gold with a large diminishing fluffy off-white head. Aroma of sweet grapefruit mainly along with some caramel malt in the back. Flavour of light, slightly watered down grapefruit juice, somewhat sweet and with a very light bitter finish. Finish is a bit iffy. Light to average bodied. A decent thirst quencher but not much of a beer.

presario (4608) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2012
Bottle. Disapointing from the start. Dirty dark amber. No head. Faint grapefruit scent. Think body with astonishing lack of citrus. Like an old lemon cookie. Does have a hint of pulp.

reebtogi (4144) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
A couple of 4oz samples at VCBW 2012 in the Salt Building in Vancouver pours a light golden orange color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is mild grapefruit with some cereal grains. Taste is light grapefruit bitterness with an underlying malt sweetness and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a decent fruit beer which is easy to drink and quite refreshing.

Ferris (3799) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle - Marmalade on toast and not in a good way. Cloudy orange with no head. Tastes like marmalade as well, there is no reason to drink marmalade.

kidmartinek (3617) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours a hazy, deep amber or copper rather and waiting for the cigarraette poop stink to dissipate you can vaguely smell some fruit。 the f在avour is decidedly grapefruit though and oh so very nice. A very nice grapefruity tasting beer if you can get through the grapefruit poop smoke smell of the other patrons... because after all we all know, that’s what cigarettes smell like is poop.

Crit (3334) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
Cloudy amber,fast fading beige head.Faint malt nose.Light malt profile, faintly tart citrus,then a sweet finish. Easy drinking Despite the poor looks and nose, and the low score, I quite like it
