I like this beer. Is the spice clove or ginger? The combination with grapefruit works for me.

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

Nice orange gold color. Smells of grapefruit with floral notes. Taste is crisp clean grapefruit followed by ginger with a nice warning effect. It is good and refreshing.

Tastes more of ginger than of grapefruit. Not bad but, except for the alcohol, I'd rather just have a ginger ale.
