Obviously I didn't expect much from this one. It's artificially sweet and unbalanced. It's from a huge brewery so I didn't expect it to be great. This is fine for a hot summer day.

Tastes awful...served it at a Beer Festival and waited for everyone to make an awful face...we called it Red Bird Face.

I did not enjoy this beer. Too bitter.

Amber golden color with a fluffy head that is short lived.
Predominant sweet aroma of oxidized grapefruit juice and ginger.
Soda flavor with artificial notes of grapefruit and mostly ginger, not otherwise.
Dry aftertaste with a very mild bitterness.
Light body with soda like carbonation.
This didn't taste it as beer, it sure tasted as a ginger beer. I was expecting a flavorful grapefruit APA, but it came out as a sugary soda drink. This could have been so much better.

A macro lager with mostly ginger. Not good at all.
