This pours a mostly clear, light yellow color with a slight, white head. The aroma is full of a lemon-lime citrus scent. The taste is rather thin and light in flavor. I was really hoping for a bigger, bolder fruit taste but it’s just not there. It’s nice attempt that is better than some other citrus beers out there but it still falls short of the German Radlers.

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A - The fizzy white head that tops this clear pale yellow beer disappears pretty quickly, sinking to a thin skim of suds, lazily fed by a trickle of carbonation.

S - Point's Coast Radler has an artificial lemon-lime popsicle aroma reminiscent of summer while ruby grapefruit candies meddle behind, overlapping a blend of tart lemonade and light pale beer. While it smells somewhat artificial throughout, it's also bright and refreshing smelling.

T - While the aroma is straight up lemon-lime and grapefruit, the flavor is almost entirely pale domestic lager with a slight corn husk taste washed away by the finish of lemon lime-aide and a subtle kiss of grapefruit rind with trailing artificial sweetness.

M - Nice carbonation tickles the tongue, livening up the otherwise flimsy, thin base that washes down with a dry bite and lingering perception of artificial sweetness on the tongue.

O - While less beer-like and more fruit drink in aroma and less fruit in flavor and more cheap beer oriented, Coast Radler doesn't quite fit right, ending up more like a poorly mixed radler at a bar that could use a better blend. The nostalgia of the lemon-lime popsicle in this beer is nice but it would most definitely benefit from better ingredients all around.

L - hazed, pale, white wine color, very thin white head fizzles away quickly
S - tangy citrus nose with mostly grapefruit with faint lemon-lime, biscuity malt
T - biscuity toasty grain, yeast, tangy and tart lemon-lime-grapefruit but seems very artificial, especially in the aftertaste
F - thin body, highly carbonated, finishes tart, modestly dry, fairly clean and refreshing
O - I didn't like this much and wouldn't buy it again. I expected a bit more with this one.
