A nice ginger beer aroma. Amber pour. Thin head. It’s alright and not the most well rounded ginger beer. Dry finish. It could have used a lot more flavor all around.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clear gold, no head. Aroma of Squirt soda. Taste of same. Could’ve fooled me with a can of Squirt. Light body, heavy carb....just like Squirt soda.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose. Fresh grapefruit, some light sweet malts, light ginger ale. Highly carbonated. Not bad. I’d drink this on a hot day near the Rio Grande.

Faint but nice aroma of grapefruit, ginger, hops, spice and grass. Taste is a little boring but still enjoyable. Cool ginger flavor! Finishes sticky and slightly fruity. A for interesting. C for effort.

A perfect summer beer. Low alcohol. Refreshing. Grapefruit and ginger flavored are noticeable but not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, short lived off white head, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is grapefruit, light cereal malts, no hops, balance to the grapefruit.......taste is slightly sweet, with heavy grapefruit, minimal hops, light cereal, finishing with hints of ginger.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a light grapefruit dominated beer, that is almost grapefruit soda pop. The base beer is quite nondeScript. It is really a fruit beer. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

Bottle sampled at Norm’s Beer & Wine. Yellow with off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit citrus, light herbs and spice. Tastes of grapefruit citrus and light ginger. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Tasty and refreshing.

Pours a clear golden with a touch of ruby. Normal head volume, poor retention and no lacing. Nice vibrant light nose of light sweet grapefruit over biscuit. As it warms, ginger comes to the forefront. Light body with a texture similar to water. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish. With more intensity and complexity the flavor profile would be outstanding. Light grapefruit and ginger roll across the biscuit base. Middle bitterness is only a hint. The finish does deliver a nice burst of ginger and a nice spicy heat. Beef this beer up and it is an outstanding contender. As is, it’s a good lawnmower beer.
