Bottled, no date. Poured into a lager glass a hazy golden color with a humongous frothy head the subsided and laced very well. Aroma was a whiff of gingers and not too much else, maybe a bit of breadiness. The taste was therefore a surprise. Just a touch of ginger, but holy grapefruit, Batman! The bitterness from the rind and albedo, yet a fresh grapefruit juice note works underneath and brings some tartness and highlights the sweetness. The ginger comes back on the end with a bit of tingle and dryness. The body is medium, kind of smooth. Overall. It isn’t strong enough with the ginger for me to call it a ginger beer, but reminds me more of a grapefruit shandy if I mixed a medium body lager with fresh grapefruit juice. I like this, wish I had paired it with maybe Mexican or BBQ vittles.

The grapefruit and ginger really linger...in a pleasant palate cleansing sort of way. Quite a while after drinking it and still have a faint citrus and ginger taste going on.

I generally like IPA's and Stouts but these guys are kicking ass. Pureed Ginger & Grapefruit juice. WTF. Everything kind of just hangs out together in harmony. Hops, Ginger and Grapefruit juice. On top of making great beer they provide some of the best bang for the buck in New England. $3.99 for what Maine Beer Co. is charging $6.99. Had MBC's Zoe last night and its a lovely beer but so is this at half the price. Thanks boys.
