JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Golden on color with no head. When they say it is made with grapefruit and ginger, they mean it... aroma is a mix of ginger ale and Squirt soda. Moderately sweet with the ginger lending a soft spiciness atop bittersweet grapefruit. Finish has a little cardboard and prairie grass. Heavily carbonated. Certainly feels more like a soda than a beer, but is refreshing, not overly sweet and a very decent summer thirst quencher. Undeserving of a lot of these low scores.

Pleasant fruity aroma. Minimal head that quickly disappeared. Tastes like a cheap or water-downed version of Schofferhofers grapefruit beer, and with a slight bitter/ginger aftertaste. Still, it was thirst quenching and overall is a bit underrated.

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 Coyotes 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.

JPDIPSO (6171) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Light amber color with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Scent is of ginger. Flavors of ginger and perhaps a touch of wheat. Mildly refreshing. Rather sharp on the tongue. 4/12

Can @ Ducks Eatery. Deep gold, white head. Aroma is ginger, grapefruit, pepper, plastic berries. Flavor is sweet ginger cherry tart. Horrible mouthfeel. Really awful stuff.

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.

wombat23 (1287) - Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Had the misfortune of ending up with one of these at a Christmas party. Tastes of watery grapefruit juice with hints of ginger. Drain pour.

Felsenbrau (52) - 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.

ghostbeer (203) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 7, 2016
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.
