2.9/5 rDev -9.1%
It tastes like Ginger ale with a hint of grapefruit juice. Not bad for someone who doesn't really like that hoppy beer taste but wants something summery. I had this mid July with chicken wings, I'd say that's the best pairing for this beer. Nothing to write home about but refreshing with a light dinner.

3/5 rDev -6%
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance: pours a 2" pillowy white head that falls with some nice lacing left behind. Color is a clear amber with moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: gingerbread cookie dough is the dominate smell. Also a bit of lemony citrus.
Mouthfeel: light and quite tangy with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: ginger is a bit more subdued than in the aroma, blends nicely with caramel malts and the citrus flavor.
Overall: Definitely a unique beer. It is quite refreshing on a hot summer day. Not something I would buy or drink regularly, but enjoyable none the less.
