Shiner Ruby Redbird

Shiner Ruby Redbird

This beer is brewed out of Shiner TX at the Spoetzl Brewery. It is a summer seasonal and it has a light 4%ABV. The bottle claims this to be a “perfect summer beer” and it is brewed with ginger, and Ruby Red grapefruit.

This beer poured out a nice reddish golden color with a decent head that didn’t retain, and left little lace on the glass. The aroma of this beer contained a subtle hint of the grapefruit, and ginger that was found in the aroma as well as some sweet malts. The taste of this beer starts off with the sweet malt found in the nose and balances well with the grapefruit and ginger before finishing  crisp, and slightly sour.

Overall I can see how this beer would compliment a warm day due to it’s light body however I was left wanting more when it came to the taste.
