3.51/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured 16oz pint can into a pint glass

Appearance: Pale, yellow, light. Slightly fizzy.

Smell: Reminds me of a Ruby Red squirt mixed with alcohol. Grapefruit and sugar.

Taste: Sweet and sugary. Once again reminds me of a ruby red squirt.

Mouth feel: Much less carbonation than I was expecting. Slightly watery and mild carbonation.

Overall: I appreciate the attempt at creating a Stiegl style radler that actually contains sufficient alcohol (unlike Stiegl) but this is just average. Not too bad, but nothing special... Just like everything else Schell has to offer.

Looks like a BMC light beer- pale fizzy yellow beer.

Grainy BMC light beer nose with a light yet syrupy grapefruit undertone. Pretty light smell.

The taste is like a light lager mixed with a grapefruit syrup. I know they did use real grapefruit juice and it does come through more in the end, but the sweetness is just too much for me and is presenting itself as artificial flavored syrup. Grapefruit peel on the finish with a little lingering bitterness.

Light, fizzy, dry finish from all of the grapefruit.

This is my first radler and probably my last. Like a Mike's Hard Lemonade really. My ratings reflect my thoughts, but taking into account style also which gives it a higher bump than if I just rated it on straight up opinion. I'm glad Schell's used real grapefruit instead of artificial, but it still has a fake corn syrup sweetness to it. Definitely not my style and if you're a radler fan, I would suggest it. If not, move along.

Very pale straw color with just under a finger of head that settled quickly to a thin cap. Some spotty lacing is left down the glass.

Aroma is all grapefruit. Very similar to the aroma after cutting a grapefruit in half. Impressive natural aroma.

Mothman said it tasted like Ruby Red Squirt. That is spot on. Very little beer flavor left but there is some malt flavor that sneaks in the finish that lets the drinker know he is not drinking soda or some malt beverage concoction. Even leaves a grapefruit aftertaste.

I think this beer could of benefitted from a higher level of carbonation. Low for even a more conventional German lager. The body is light but does not finish really crisp.

Impressive Radler. Schell's produced a beer that is refreshing and not too sweet. I would not get tired of drinking this after a couple. I would like a little more beer flavor and more lively carbonation to put this solidly in the outstanding level.

4.05/5  rDev +22%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Clear pale gold, with a two finger white head, which slowly fades to one finger. Lots of bubbles streaming up from the bottom of the glass. The aroma has sweet grapefruit. It smells like a grapefruit soda such as Squirt or Fresca.

It tastes sweet like sweetened grapefruit juice. This might actually be sweeter than a soda. This is a nice beer for a warm summer's day.

Light bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Has a sweet grapefruit aftertaste. I had a good idea what to suspect when I bought this, so I am not surprised or disappointed. I like this for what it is. It's different, but I also think it's quite good.

First tried this beer at the minnesota state fair. Instantly became on of my favorite beers i have tried... been looking all over for this beer but found out it is only available on tap.

Pours light in color, some lace

Taste delicous, you get a mouth full of the grapefruit flavoring along with other characteristics that balance it out nicely.

Smells Sweet

Overall this beer is at the top of my list and i hope thye release in bottle/cans soon

On tap at Veigel's Kaiserhoff in New Ulm.
Had a flat appearance with little head and looking mostly like an Am. lager. Golden body and mostly clear.
Grapefruit aroma with only a hint of the base lager.
A nice grapefruit flavor that wasn't too tart or too sweet, but more on the sweet than tart. Again the lager base was foundation and background. No real hop quality to discern.
Light body, but certainly with more of a lager quality than water. Smooth and on flatter side of carbonation.
I was surprised with how much I liked this. A nice easy drinking beverage that's soft on the beer qualities, but not without them. It went nice with the meal and was nice for a hot day. Good for lawn mowing and enjoying outdoors in hot weather when looking for the thirst quenching aspects of drinking.

Don't know too much about this other than it is a massive grapefruit beer. I heard rumors that they are trying to get the abv up and put it in bottles.

Pint at old Chicago

Little white head with little retention. Color is a clear light pale yellow. Very clear!

This beer is hardcore grapefruit. It is hard to tell if this is a beer or some kind of wine cooler or mikes. It honesty tastes like ruby red squirt.

Mouthfeel: crisp and clean. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, this beer was really ligt and easy to drink, especially after a long run. I don't know how much of it I would normally want, but on a hot day a bottle or two would be refreshing.
