Not my cup of tea. Tired of the radler beers. This one has strong grapefruit taste but otherwise a boring lager. But in all fairness I'm more of a dark beer guy.

Shocked Radler pours a bright straw color with a small non lacing head. There is a mellow grapefruit aroma. The taste is sweet, and fruity, lots of grapefruit, as it warms up the grapefruit gets overpowering. Very light flavors, yet the grapefruit still gets overpowering. refreshing, decent carbonation. Overall its a funky beer, light fruity, very refreshing, however its nearly undrinkable.

Appearance - A clear straw color. A normal pour yielded a 2 finger head which stuck around for awhile. Decent lacing.

Smell - Sweet Grapefruit. That is all I'm getting

Taste - This is very one dimensional. Puckering grapefruit. Very sweet. A hint of pale malt but I really have to search for it.

Mouthfeel - Thin body and low to medium carbonation.

Overall - The grapefruit is really overpowering in this beer. I like grapefruit, but this is hard to finish. If it had higher carbonation and less grape fruit / more malt - it could be good. Disappointing for something I had been looking forward to trying.

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle into a clear beer mug.

Appearance: Very pale yellow with light carbonation that leaves little or no white fizzy foam on top. No retention or lacing at all. Leaves a slight cap of white fizzy carbonation throughout.

Smell: Faintly sweet and malty. Not much grapefruit or hops going on in the aroma.

Taste: Very sweet and fruity with slight malty beer beneath it. No crisp grapefruit hops aroma or flavor at all. Not what I was expecting, it's far too tame and watered down.

Mouth feel: Watery, thin and just lightly carbonated.

Overall: I have had quite a few Austrian Radler's by Stiegl Brewing and Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizens over the years, and I was really hoping Schell's was trying to duplicate that, or maybe even go a bit bolder with flavors...but this rendition is far too sweet, watery and lacking in grapefruit bite to compare. This one just leaves me wanting to go get some Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen instead.
