Poured into a pint glass. A cloudy dirty lemon yellow. Very efervescent. Minimal head which soon disappears.

Smells like grapefruit. Taste is of grapefruit up front but without the tartness. Some malts flavours come through. The malts seem to moderate the grapefruit edge quite a bit.

Very nice really. Not very beer like but eminently drinkable. Will no doubt become a summer favorite due to the refreshing nature and the low ABV

$8 for 12oz? Ouch! Served in tulip. Poured a cloudy and opaque yellow with about 1/4 inch of white head that had no retention and very light lacing.

The aroma was dominated by the grapefruit pop, without any real beer aspects showing through. On the tongue, a slight bit of grain was apparent, but still, this mostly pop flavored. The body was nice, light and crisp, with a finish that was drier than I expected. Drinkability was very good, you could easily drink several of these. Overall, a very pleasant brew, one that's worth trying if you see it. I just hope you get a better price.

Side note: I often make these using Squirt and the Pilsener from one of my local breweries, Chuckanut. They kick ass, and I suggest you try it with one of your local brews.

A fine, refreshing beer with lots of fruity taste and crispness. This is excellent for the summer, for cookouts, or for just relaxing in the lounge room. Fun and tasty, easy going down. If you want something light and refreshing, give this a try. Or two.
