500ml bottle from Konzum supermarket (Rovinj, Croatia - 8.99 kuna):
Quite a poor offering in truth, not as good as some other radlers I tried over the summer & it didn't prove to be refreshing either. Naturally the lemons dominated but there seemed to be a huge amount of sugar too & on top of that the beer seemed quite artificial; definitely not one I'll be looking out for again I'm afraid.

this seems to be a popular style during the summer over here, i am surprised it hasnt been added yet. it is a half (or more) lemonade, half beer. pours like a glass of lemonade, same color, cloudy, and bubbling like a soda. smells like a sprite with just a hint of lager beer with it, kind of the opposite proportions to the beer drinks we used to make in australia after golf. it tastes sweet and bitter at the same time, obviously lemonade dominant. it is hardly detectable as a beer until the end, which has some normal karlovacko malt profile coming in, before the sugary wash comes in. mouthfeel is rough, too carbonated and too darn sugary. overall though, it has a place on a hot day. also a good hangover beer because of the taste and the low abv. they also make a few other flavors of this, which might also be interesting.
