It looks like grapefruit juice, a murky orange-pink. The head is somewhat on the fizzier side but shows a modicum of substance, though its fall is quick and its lacing between minimal and moderate.
It's a little dusty in the nose off fresh ruby red, somewhat acidic but with a certain accompanying sweetness. The malt forming the base is light but noticeable.
More than just a grapefruit soda, the malts give a supporting backbone of dryness and cracker as well as bigger, more robust barley notes, but just enough to let one know they're still drinking a beer with all the fresh sweet/tart/sour grapefruit going on.
With lots of acidity but without being too harsh on the palate, one can't ask for a whole lot more than the light but not shallow body, zest, and crispness this beer brings.
