S: moderate to moderately low light malt, grapefruit and ginger aromas with a light sweetness.

L: gold amber with a faint haze and a sudsy white foam cap that rapidly disappears.

T: light grains, citrus, a trace of ginger and light to medium hop bitterness. The grapefruit flavors emerge more in the middle and the ginger increases throughout and the level of ginger heat increases slightly with each drink. The bitterness is just enough to balance the grapefruit and malt.

F: medium light body and medium to medium low carbonation.

O: The brewer shows a restrained hand with the added fruit and spices and achieves a fairly balanced, drinkable beer.
