12 oz can pours a clear gold color with a large cap of fluffy white head. Nice retention and lace.

Nose smells like a Lipton Brisk Iced Tea. Sweet and lemony.

Taste has a bit too much lemonade-esque flavor and the lager a bit to biscuity, bordering on light toast. Id like a less sweet version with a more neutral malt profile. This is far from my favorite radler and Id probably rank this below Lienenkugel's Summer Shandy on my request list.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best before date" December 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear golden color with a one finger white head that dissipated slowly until a thin broken layer of bubbles remained, a higher amount of carbonation with moderate lacing on the glass.

SMELL: bread and citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, sweet bubbly lemon, no hop profile that I can detect, more like a soft drink than a beer.

PALATE: lighter body with higher carbonation.

OVERALL: this is the second Radler style beer I've tried, I enjoyed this beer, it would appeal to people who do not normally like beer because it tastes like a soft drink, the modest 4.5% ABV means you can enjoy more than one. I would not drink this often but it's a good beach party beer.

Single bottle from a craft beer "pick six" setup poured into a flute. Not my preferred beer style but the completist (or obsessive) in me wanted to try every offering in the current Sam Adams summer pack and rumor has it that this tastes at least somewhat like a real beer as opposed to some limp dick 30% beer 70% juice blend (sorry, that's a cooler, not a beer). A darker than expected yellow-orange gold rather like ginger ale, with an initially large frothy white had that dissipates almost instantly. The aroma is not bad (!), some of the rich cereal notes one expects in a Helles, the expected lemon rind and oil and even a faint whiff of grassy noble hops. On the palate the lemon is tastefully done, not overwhelming the light malts, and there is also a subtle candied ginger vibe, and the hops seem to combine with the fruit to yield a sweet lemongrass tea effect. Not particularly sour. A bit heftier than expected in terms of body, accompanied by a pleasingly moderate degree of carbonation (although one's biased expectancies do yield a slight desire for more fizz). As mentioned, not a shandy guy but this is a nice revelation, even if I would not purposely seek out this brew again. Its a candy beer but one with some grain to shore it up.
