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.

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.

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.
