Beck's Green Lemon
€3.90 @ Relay Flughafen Frankfort, Germany

As might be expected, the beer tastes exactly as the name suggests. It's a toned-down version of Beck's with limited bitterness and citrusy flavoring added. Surprisingly, it's quite clear with an impressive head on it. At first sip the lemon (is it also supposed to be lime? Oh wait, that's right, in Europe "lemon" is lime and "citron" is lemon) is interesting and refreshing but by the time it makes it's way to the swallow it mixes with the bitterness in an almost medicinal way. Unfortunate. Not really worth trying unless you're curious.

I tryed Green lemon made in Apatinska brewery. ABV is 2.8%

A-Light golden color,white foam,surprisingly lasts few minutes. It looks more like some German pilsener then fruit lager.

S-Acid lemon smell.

T/M-Good side is there's very low sweetness,bad is that lemon aftertaste is extremely high.

O-Rubbish.

A: a light green color, with a small head, not very rich carbonation but present, color is nice.

S: Lemon of course and a backbone of barley malts, almost no hops or other things present.

T: It is pleasant, simple and as expected just the lemons but also is back up by a barley tasting. Citric is main.

M: Very refreshing, little sweetness but more citric that bitter or other.

Not bad for a try.

From notes.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle. ABV 2.5%
Colour is yellow green-ish, no head. Smell is sweet, lemons of course but it does not smell so artificial as others. Taste is sweet with a slighty sour aftertaste.Really thin in body and quite carbonated.

1.59/5  rDev -30%
look: 1 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pale green to yellow colour with a finger sized white, bubbly head that has plenty of carbonation.

Skunky, there is a mild lemon aroma as the name would suggest but it’s not too strong. The smell of lime is more apparent & it is sweet.

A lemon and lime tasting beer that is quite sweet & unappealing, almost sickening after a glass of the stuff. Definitely a lot of sugar in the mix as well and not very pleasant.

Lots of fizz & carbonation, quite watery due to the lemonade in the mix & not all that smooth either.

Not my style of beer at all & a pretty poor showing. It wasn’t refreshing in the slightest.

”Radler”, a mixed drink with pilsner and lemonade, has been a popular drink in Germany since way back in the 1920’s. But now, when Miller Chill is gaining popularity in the US, the German major Beck’s added some green colouring to their Radler to make it look the same.

The colour is pale green-yellow; the two finger compact head is a bit greenish. It sinks slowly leaving no lacing at all. It looks a little like radiator glycol…

The smell is average for a radler – some lemon flavouring, some sweet sugar and hints of pilsner beer.

The taste is at first oddly sour and unbalanced. Then, some sweetness emerges together with frowsy yeasty flavours. The aftertaste is much like a lager beer with some lemon flavouring and some weak notes of sugar and bitterness.

The carbonation is kind of strong, soda-like. The liquid is a bit sticky.

Not a very good radler, this one.
