Shiner Ruby Redbird is a summer seasonal beer brewed with ginger and grapefruit. This beer is pretty terrible. It is nice looking, I’ll give it that. Bright, clear amber, lots of carbonation, but no foam at all. No lace. The smell reminds me of the water that peas have been boiled in. There is a sulfur quality to the smell, too. The flavor is tart and flat. It’s like someone mixed an average adjunct lager with some citrus juice and let it sit for a long time. I’ll never drink this again.
