DrnkMcDermott (3053) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2012
$3 bottle, served at Standard Market. Id put this one down as a good summer shandy. Under the cap, I get just a whiff of grapefruit that couldve come from the hop bill of some American Pale Ale (I had a taster of Sixpoint Resin for comparision, but theyre nothing a like). Beer is slightly muddy brown complexion, but pretty cleanly filtered. Grapefruit taste is a bit stronger,. Mild beer base makes this more like a shandy, letting the slight tartness stand out. Still, by blending with a fruit thats similar to certain hop profiles, we get something better than the standard lemonade-weakened shandy.

Bottle from Walgreens. Amber colour with a white head. Aroma of citrus. The taste is dominated by the sweetness of red grapefruit and the finish has plenty of ginger, giving a pleasing warmth. The fruit and spice flavours are well integrated with the malt flavour. Not much bitterness. An easy-drinking, fruit-flavoured beer.

Good summertime beer. Grapefruit taste with a ginger aftertaste. Smooth going down would definitely drink this in the summer.

Felsenbrau (51) - Middletown, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2016
12oz bottle from variety pack. Pours a bright amber with no head and no lacing. Slightly fizzy. Aroma slightly "stale" at first turning to grapefruit and ginger after a few moments. Taste of weak ginger and mild beer, finishes with more grapefruit. Not bad, probably a good cold beer on a hot day. Probably wouldnt buy again.

Great aroma. Light bodied and tons of grapefruit. A store I used to work at always sold out of this, and I can sort of see why. Not too big into fruit beer, but not bad.

Pershing (548) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2016
light amber with a thin head the fizzes away quickly into nothing. Slight citrus aroma with some grain. Thin watery body with a little more citrus flavor. Crisp refreshing finish. Not bad but not good either.
