(Awful)
NOTE: I didn't know what I was drinking when I reviewed this

Pours very pale with a cloudy appearance. White, respectable head, leaves a thin-ish film, decent lacing but not great. Too many floaties.

Bizarre nose, like lemon squash, very sugary and fruity with a slight tang. Not beer-esque at all, this is completely anomalous drop that pretty much smells exactly like soft drink.

Again, very lemony with a slight tartness but mostly a candy sweetness that is like beer with sugar cubes dropped in it. Not pleasant, has no beer taste and is also watery. Mouthfeel is VERY thin.

This is piss in a glass, the puckering aspect is all there is to pique my interest. Obviously a chick beer, obviously a feeble attempt to call itself beer while actually tasting nothing like it. Fuck you, drink.

(Not Great)

Cloudy orange yellow with a huge frothy head of dense sparkling yellow bubbles. Very thick. Looks decent enough.

Huge grapefruit sparkling citrus character on the nose. Nothing else. Smells like soft drink, or a premix alcopop. Citrus, acidity, sugar. Not that that's necessarily bad, for what it is. It's just strong, weird and un-beerlike.

Thin alcopop sour-sweet flavour too, with a lingering wheat acidity that tastes surprisingly meaty after the sharp fruit-acid character. Grapefruit leaves a dollop of bitterness on the very back, but don't get me wrong, it's not a beer-like bitterness.

It's very refreshing, and easy to drink, of course, but it's an odd concoction. I'm happy enough to drink it on occasion though.
