A: pale to medium amber beer in a pint - very brief finger of off-white head left no trace and no lace

S: grapefruit - the fruit not the hop aroma - right up front - was interesting, but also conflicted with the malt and hop aromas

T: its beer with red grapefruit juice in it - take it for what you will - I served it ice cold, as suggested on the label, but I didn't notice any perceptible changes for the better or worse as it warmed

M: thin, crisp, light, sparkly

O: perhaps its just not my cup of tea, and I do enjoy grapefruit juice, and i obviously enjoy beer, but this marriage didn't appeal to me.

A; A not unattractive beer with a deep golden body and light beige, tightly bubbled head. Brilliant Clarity and pretty good active carbonation, though head retention is poor.

S: Grapefruit, but not hoppy. Closer inspection gives some amber malts, but a displeasing...something. Musty?

T: Hmmm, yeah. No. Tastes more like rind than fruit. No classic off flavors, just a poor blending on ingredients I think.

M: Good, just what I would expect from a summer beer. Appropriate carbonation for fruity styles as well.

D; Nope.
