12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours murky golden orange color with a small foamy white head with poor retention, that reduces to nothing pretty quickly. No lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Okay appearance. Aromas of lightly tart grapefruit juice, citrus peel, cracker, white bread, and light herbal/grass. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart grapefruit juice, citrus peel, cracker, white bread, and light herbal/grass. Light herbal/grassy/citrus peel bitterness and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart grapefruit juice, citrus peel, cracker, white bread, and light herbal/grass on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from fruit tang/tartness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth and moderately grainy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a pretty good radler. All around good robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink; with the mildly tart/bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Great balance of grapefruit juice and pale lager flavors. A nicely enjoyable offering, and good style example.

Grapefruit radler from a 12 oz can at the Fall 2016 L.E.A.F.
Looks more like pink grapefruit juice but tastes like a 50/50 mix of grapefruit juice and light lager. Light carbonation with minimal visible effects.

A: Pours a murky deep golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and faint orange highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy foamy light beige head that reduces to a tiny patch of extremely thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of grapefruit juice over the top of hints of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a hint of slightly sweet grainy malts followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of grapefruit juice. Not too tart and not too sweet. No bitterness at all in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Super easy to drink and refreshing, I could easily have a few of these in a session. Solid grapefruit juice flavor and aroma.

The beer comes in a rich golden yellow, absolutely hazy.

The beer hits of straight grapefruit juice up front. Fleshy yellow grapefruit, the juice, the slight hints of tart. Then onto a light malty quality that shows itself as a malt beverage in the end. Medium carbonation to move the beer along.

A brew that one could drink for an extended amount of time, as intended, but the great grapefruit flavor really helps this beer out.
