What you gonna say? W-why I am bothering to review this? For the ticks? THE TICKS? This is 2014, man! I could, were I so inclined, simply check off a box and be done with it. But I can't. That's not me. I'm of a more cautious generation, from the days where we felt compelled to flesh out the numerical expressions of our opinions, to use words to try and explain our awful tastes, our awful deeds.

So... this is a Coors Light Radler. I've made this from scratch, with a mix of concentrated OJ and Grapefruit Juice where you pour 30 Coors into a cooler along with the juices and stir them with a big wooden spoon. It tastes very nice. It gets you mildly buzzed (majorly, if you mix a handle of cheap vodka into the mix).

It's not, however, an exceptionally well brewed beer. I mean, yeah, I understand that American light macros are exceptionally brewed in a technical sense, but they're not my cup of tea. There's nothing particularly innovative going on here.

Or, actually... maybe there is. Because this is a definite step up from any of the widely available Shandies I've tried. It's even better than Stiegl's lemon Radler. M-maybe making a pre-packaged mixed beer is actually harder than it seems?

Who knows. Who cares? This is worth a try if you're going to a cookout or a bikeride or something summery. Nothing that'll blow your socks off, but still easily the best pre-packaged juice+beer combination I've ever had.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

I purchased this at Giant Beer Garden and Eatery poured chilled from the can into a can shaped glass.

The color is bright gold with crystal clarity and fast rising pin sized bubbles are visible with white head the rises and falls to a ring. The smell is very lemony in a lemon soda sweet way with carbonic scent of fizz rising off the liquid. the feel is not overly sweet, but high carbonation with mild creaminess and semi-dry finish.

The tase is better than expected with malt combined with mild citrus from the citrus soda with sweet tangy flavors and mild yeast with slight malt in the back and sweet soda-like lemony flavor lingers in the background. The overall take is not bad, but only slightly better than average as far as a shandy or radler-could use more actual malt character, but it achieves what it sets out to do which is why it probably seems like it gets a high rating from me.
