It is as good as it gets in the right environment. It is perfect for the Texas heat in summer. I can't imagine having this in winter but that's why it's a seasonal. You get a big blast of grapefruit but the finish is ginger on the scale of a ginger beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A lovely, refreshing, summer beverage. It is a big step from a basic beer recipe with so many flavor additives, but I appreciated its nuances. I love grapefruit, but I’m not sure I’d order it again.

Cakes (442) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2017
12 oz. bottle - a nice summer beer. The aroma is probably it’s strongest side. I don’t think that I would buy an entire case of this, but it was refreshing and you can feel the fruit

Poured from a can. Thin white head. Clear yellow pour. Carbonated well. Wanted more aroma. Crisp flavor, with a hint of grapefruit at the end. Great summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit underrated IMO. Fresh red grapefruit aroma and flavor. A mild gingery finish. Active carbonation. It really did the trick after some hot summer yard work; very quenching. Pours pink hued blonde with just a wisp of head. Ultimately, it does what I think the brewers intended.

ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Pleasant fruity aroma. Minimal head that quickly disappeared. Tastes like a cheap or water-downed version of Schofferhofer’s grapefruit beer, and with a slight bitter/ginger aftertaste. Still, it was thirst quenching and overall is a bit underrated.

1.5
ccex (1327) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2017
12 oz bottle pours a clear pinkish golden color with small short-lived white head and no lacing. Aroma is all ginger and pink grapefruit. Taste is slightly sour but devoid of any hops presence or anything that would make me think this is beer. Body is light with very fizzy carbonation. This some sort of alcopop, as subtle and successful in the beer market as Wile E Coyote’s Acme Anvil was as a roadrunner exterminator. Shiner would have more success with this if they doubled the alcohol and sold it in 16 oz or 24 oz cans at gas stations.
