I love vacation, I sail and this tasty refreshing Radler fits in perfectly. Be nice if the Alc content were a bit higher. My taste buds burn out on beer fast - definitely not a quantity drinker in that respect but I can drink Radler all day. For you boaters out there, serve it with breakfast, hove to somewhere like Cuttyhunk - morning, coffee, Eggs Benedict, the smell of the ocean- you'll know what I'm talking about.

As far as radlers go, this one's, surprisingly, a winner (though maybe the context--drinking beers in Vondelpark, in Amsterdam--creates bias). Mild beery, lagery flavour and a nice, not totally unnatural lemonade/lemon-lime soda flavour. Not overly syrupy.

From hipercor. At lunch, with potatoes stew. Disgusting. Tastes like a bad mixed spirit drink.

Hazy, straw yellow body with a thin white ringlet. Aromas include lemon juice, orange rind, citric acid. Drinks like a soda. Fruity, tangy, like a lemonade. Like sweet lemon drop candies. Moderate sweetness with zesty carbonation. Light in body and refreshing. A small sample is adequate.

Cloudy yellow colored beer with a small white colored head that last for just a moment.

Smells strongly of lemon. Not much beer aspects to this it smells like lemonade.

Starts out sweet and tasting of lemons. Slight bitterness and the taste of lemon pith. Not really very beer like, mostly the beer element cuts the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall it tastes OK and is refreshing but not really beer.

Sampled yesterday on 5/20/15. Comes in a nice looking 12 ounce green bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass "CHEERS-BOSTON" stein. Low alcohol content (2.00%) but it works for this one.

This 'Brew made with Lemon Juice and other Natural Ingredients' pours a hazy honey-amber in color with a thin white head. No lacing is seen to speak of. The aroma is very pleasing, like a lemonade soda. The taste is really tasty with the perfect amount of lemons BUT not a tart or sweet as you might think and light on the 'beer' taste. Really refreshing and goes down so easy. Crisp and smooth with a lighter-body and medium carbonation. Overall, I liked it and would be refreshing in the warmer months.

This is as good as any radler I've had. Lemonade soda. Sure it has a low ABV but its supposed to.

3/17/15 (Can) - Misty yellow cloudy body, minimal thin white head. Aroma mostly lemon and very sweet. Taste did not resemble beer - more like lemon lime soda. Tasted OK but I expected more of a standard beer with lemon taste and smell. Felt like drinking a pop. If you are looking for a light ABV lemon pop, this is for you. Was pleasant drinking for what it is, but if you are looking for a beer with a taste which contains lemon, go elsewhere.
