Leinenkugel's Grapefruit Shandy

Leinenkugel's Brewing Company is from  Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  They began brewing in 1867. Leinenkugel's has been owned by Miller for some time now (who is now owned by MolsonCoors). They have been releasing quite a number of shandies in the last couple of years, and this is a 4.2% ABV grapefruit version.

The beer pours a hazy yellow, looking like the filling of lemon meringue pie. There is over an inch of pure white head, but it fizzles down fairly quickly. The aroma is a blast of grapefruit, a touch of sweet, and toasted wheat, think grapefruit curd spread on toast eaten while drinking a freshly poured Squirt. The taste follows the aromas, zesty and tangy grapefruit, with light grapefruit bitterness, over toast. It drinks very easy and refreshing. This makes for a tasty and refreshing shandy.
