12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a sickly off yellow color with a finger of foam that disappears almost instantly. No lacing whatsoever. Does not looks very nice. Aroma is strong with ginger... reminds me of sushi.
First sip is just a strong ginger flavor. Very lightly carbonated, so it tastes kind of stale as well. I will say it is refreshingly dry, but the flavor itself is pretty unappealing. Thin bodied.
All I really get is the ginger flavor. No sweetness or anything else appealing. I wouldn't get this again.

Changed my mind on just "ticking." Let's see what I can say about this one.
I took one from the six pack and poured into a pint glass.
It had a semi - clear yellow color with lots of carbonation to be seen rising throughout a bubbly looking head that quickly died down.
It smelled exactly as the can said, ginger with some grapefruit and it tasted the same as well.
The mouthfeel was slightly harsh but didn't bother me too much as I just figured it was the ginger.
Overall, huh, well how about that, when I sit down and take the time to actually take a look at this beer, it's not that bad. Refreshing, heck yeah, I could be wrong but I'm not sure if I could find anything more refreshing in at least Southeast Alaska.
