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. (937 characters)

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. (667 characters)

I believe this to be a radler to compare all other radlers to.

Appearance - cloudy light coloured with a citrus juice consistency.

Smell - After pouring into a glass you get a distinct citrusy scent with a light fruity undertone from the light ale base.

Taste - The first sip is a citrus assault on your senses with a very well balanced relationship between the grapefruit and light ale. The second sip is smoother on the palate with a clean grapefruit flavour going down with a light ale taste left behind.

Mouthfeel - Heavy carbonation counters some of the bitterness of the grapefruit and provides a crisp finish with every sip without any lasting residue in your mouth.

Overall - This Radler is a go-to for this style. It's 2.5abv is perfect for someone enjoying a day in the outdoors without the elevated risk of impairment and dehydration. I find that one radler usually leads to a few more over the day as they seem to go well lunches and dinners. Perfectly paired with a watermelon salad, salmon dinner, or just burgers on the bbq. Cheers! (1,053 characters)

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! (268 characters)

Faintly yellow and extremely hazy in appearance. No head but vigorous carbonation bubbles up to the top. Aroma is strong and could be described as similar to lemon lime soda. I take another sniff and I can see that being more grapefruit in nature. The taste is very similar to soda and is very sweet in character. The carbonation and citrus nature is so abundant in taste and in scent that each sip cleanses my sinuses. It's very refreshing and would be nice on a blistering hot day. It's. Bit sweet for my taste. (520 characters)
