500ml, screw cap bottle, with what appears to be some weird cycling Chinese stereotypical minstrel imagery on the label - more lost in translation commentary?

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with two zaftig fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and fizzy bone-white head, which leaves some chunky iceberg profile lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of European lemon/lime soda, grainy pale malt, a twinge of pilsner petrol fumes, artificial sweetener, and a very mild earthy hop bitterness. The taste is semi-sweet, fake-seeming lemon-lime citrus, bland pale grainy malt, more free-range natural and man-made sugary sweetness, and a wee chalky earthiness.

The carbonation is nice and rounded in its genial frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and mostly smooth, the sugar tamping down any of the edges that the citrus fruitiness might have once possessed. It finishes off-dry, and not as sweet as I had recently been informed.

As far as these Teutonic (and those who would emulate them) radlers go, this is all right - no real off-flavours, save the perception that the sugar isn't quite as pure as the driven snow (hah!). Whatever, this one could be good after having to get from point A to a place relatively far away called point B, perhaps via a two-wheeled, man-powered contraption - or maybe just kickin' it in the sun - both concepts that are quickly dwindling for this year.
