I like fruit beers but this had no beer taste at all.

So my rating of this is based on what it is, not what other beers are (kinda how it should be, right?). What we have here is the perfect summer day beer (which I tried in the winter...). A beer that shandys likely were designed to emulate. My rating is also a little all over the place. First off, the beer looks tragic. Barely fizzy piss. Perhaps drinking straight from the can is a good route to take. Get past the look and take a whiff to find a pleasant fruity fragrance that seems far less contrived than most shandys I have had. Move on to taste and it is light, fruity, refreshing and crisp. All this at 2.5%!!! As for finish, here's another bonus - not cloyingly sweet as the taste may suggest! Look, this isn't something you will crack open and have an intellectual moment over, but if you have a summer drinking marathon in your future, you have GOT to get a few of these. Especially if that marathon starts before noon!

This beer is phenomenal out of the tall boy cans! In the glass bottles the taste is different and carbonation seems less preserved.
In a bottle I'd rate it about a 3.0
In a can: 5.0

Not a big grapefruit fan, but this is nice on a hot day.
