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.

Aroma is grapefruit, ripe fruit and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is grapefruit, ripe fruit, mild/medium sweetness, malts, a hint of spices and a very tart finish.

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.
