undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.

Hmmm, beer made with grapefruit ... from a large brewery. I have to admit it occurred to me that Shiner may be replacing some hops with the fruit juice.

Pours way more orange than red; medium amber tone with a slight haze, at least after adding a bit of sediment found at the bottom of the bottle. Visible coarse carbonation. The smallish head dies quickly.

Aroma & Flavor: Red grapefruit may be the featured ingredient, at least in the "Ruby Redbird" name, but ginger take the front seat in both aroma and flavor. Grapefruit, hops and vague spices are also evident. The mild tartness and bitterness are less strong than might be expected.

M: crisp but rather astringent; light/medium body; somewhat aggressive carbonation; dry finish.

O: a flavorful, lower ABV beer that may appeal to those who like ginger and don't mind a rather astringent brew.
