Think overly sweetened grapefruit "lemon" ade. It's quenching but not very beer like. Would do well with the cider crowd I think.

I'm normally not such a pessimist about beers, but this one pissed me off.
Sure, radlers aren't entirely beer, but this went beyond that. Aside from a small aftertaste of beer, this tasted entirely like grapefruit soda.

I was extremely disappointed.
Between the carbonation (a bit thinner than soda), the sweetness (about as sweet as soda), and the flavor (hardly any beer taste. Grapefruit taste was good but not worth getting over a soda), everything was just grapefruit soda.

This is a beer review site, so I'm reviewing it as a beer. I dislike sodas because they're too sweet, and this is just as sweet. Hardly any noticeable beer taste either.

Not recommended.
Recommend to try Schöfferhofer Grapefruit. Even Waterloo radler was better in my opinion (but still not recommended).
