3.51/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a wine glass

A: Pours a pale, straw color. There is a tiny head that quickly appears then disappears, much like a soft drink.

S: Very fruity. I get big notes of grapefruit and citrus. There is a slight bready malt aroma in the background.

T: Sweet, citric and refreshing. Again, grapefruit is far and away the most prominent flavor. It's very sweet but a good dose of tangy and a little bit of sour temper the sweetness. I can taste the standard Goldenbrau in the background. That slight malty flavor is the only thing that indicates to me that this is somewhat beer and not just soda.

M: Fairly thin with fizzy, soda-like carbonation. Slightly syrupy.

O: A special hybrid between soda and beer. Drinks like a soda with a touch of beer. Somehow the two sets of flavors meld nicely. Much better than the standard lemon flavored one. Low alcohol and easy drinking make this one fantastic summer beer.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):

LOOK: Fizzy head, hazy yellow straw

SMELL: Fresh grapefruit juice, zest, faint graininess, soda, clean

TASTE: Crisp, slick, lighter body, tart, grapefruit zest, juicy, sweet, hint of alcohol, cereal, faint bitterness, almonds; tart, dry finish

Imagine working outside on a blistering hot day ... you want something that is going to quench your thirst, but also something sweet, not so alcoholic and still beer-ish. It’s as simple as cutting a beer with soda. Stiegl opted for grapefruit rather than the traditional lemon here. Surprised this style has not caught on in the US yet—good drinking for what it is.

A wonderful summer brew that always tastes great, very refreshing. Enjoy the citrus grapefruit taste. It blends seamlessly with the beer enhancing the overall taste and experience. Very crisp! Also enjoy the Lemon Radler from Stiegl, but the grapefruit is my favorite!
