3.3/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

12oz bottle (best before Nov 2012) poured into a Shaker Pint glass.

Appearance: Pale clear bright golden yellow. Plenty of carbonation coming up through the beer. White head died back fairly quickly to just leave a ring at the edge. Occasional island of lacing here and there, but most of them slid back down and disappeared.

Smell: Lemony - very lemony but not overpowering. Maybe a hint of malt in the back.

Taste: Exactly like someone blended lemons into a lager. The flavors muddle together and it's hard to pull much out besides lemonade with some beer flavors. Tart up front, with some sweetness in the middle and some bitterness at the end. Interesting, but odd.

Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation, almost fizzy. Good thickness under the carbonation though - maybe a bit sticky and creamy at the same time.

Overall / Drinkability: I've not had a true Radler before so it's hard for me to rate it according to that style so let me comment on it as a beer with a lot of lemon in it. It works for about half a glass, and then it kind of loses its charm. I think it would be better if it was hotter or I was outside enjoying this. Inside and after a meal it's just okay and not that drinkable - one is enough.

3.29/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bright shiny gold body, topped by a billowing pure white rocky foam head. Plenty of stretchy lace.

Pleasant lemon aroma.

Taste is soft light sweet malt body, mild noble hops, and a shot of lemonade.

Light soft mouthfeel.

Not bad on a hot summer afternoon.
