A: The beer is very hazy yellowish amber in color and has some clumps of yeast visible floating near the bottom of the glass. It poured with an eighth of a finger high beige head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bitter grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very bitter and has strong notes of grapefruit flavors. It reminds me a lot like drinking grapefruit juice.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: If you don't like the taste or bitterness of grapefruit juice, this is a beer that you probably won't enjoy. Otherwise it is nice and bitter and citrusy.

Catherine the Great was a decent beer. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that left some lace. The scent had hints of sweetness and a touch of bitterness. The taste was evenly balanced but sweet malt prevailed. The Mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it's ok.
