This lemonade beer pours a light yellow with almost no head as it is a mix of beer with lemonade. The Germans like this on a hot day as a cold refreshing drink. I prefer a nice full bodied beer myself so I am not inclined to give the radlers a fair review. This one smells of lemon and tastes of lemon which it is supposed to and has a thin mouth and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. OK if this is your style.

Yellow and lemony and cloudy. Bubbles on the glass indicate some carbonation, and its topped with 3 fingers of yellowish head.

Smells of lemon citron powder and a hint of malt beverage.

Tastes of lemon kids drink, or cold medicine, with a hint of malt beverage.

Medium, slightly syrupy body, with lots of soda like carbonation.

Got at Rimping, drinking in Chiang Mai Nov. 6th, 2016. Not a bad brew for a radler.

Found it here in Serbia, can 0,5 L

A - Pale Lager appearance. No head, very low carbonation, golden color.
S - Some sugar sweetness, citrus (lemon) and barley malt in the back.
T/M - Sweet, low bitterness, weak citrus syrup taste, low carbonation, pale lager taste at the end.

O - Very weak aroma's, and most important, it is not refreshing on hot summer day, so, way drinking it ?

500ml bottle acquired in Berlin, Germany, and poured into a Guinness pint glass.

A: One finger head, devoid of cream, quite thin and a bit pathetic, with average retention. Clear yellow colour. Rather unappealing, truth be told.

Sm: Slight cream, some strangely sour estery notes unexpected in this style of beer, maybe some half-spoiled vegetable. All of the above considered, it remains strangely appealing.

T: A lemony, estery, souring vegetable hop mess of a beer. There's almost a hint of sugar from sweets (i.e. candy sugar) present, but that can't be. Basically an amalgam of strange soured fruits. Doesn't quite taste on the mark for any style, including the nastier lambics. Built very strangely indeed, yet reliant on the lemon through-flavour to be good. Built decently well I suppose, albeit vaguely.

Mf: Clean, smooth, wet, and refreshing. Matches the flavours of the body to a limited extent. By no means exemplary of the style.

Dr: Absurdly inexpensive and pretty complex for the price, but still not quite worth it all other options from the same store considered. Better options can certainly be had.

Paid the equivalent of 56 cents for a 0.5L can at Rewe in Berlin.

Smells like lemonade. Tastes like Minute Maid lemonade with a splash of malt.

This would be my post lawnmower beverage if I could get it for the same price at home.

A: Straw-colored pour with a small white uneven soapy head. Instant dissipation.

S: Kind a sour maltyness but everything is overpowered by a lemony detergent smell.

T: Sweet, very sweet unbalanced malt is dominated by a citric lemonade that feels very artificial - almost like a cleaning product.

M: Aftertaste is very short. Body is very thin and carbonation is rich.

D: Why bother?
