3.21/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

The liquid is very pale golld with a tint of beige. The three finger head is airy and white. Some lacing. Th Aroma is sweet with notes of citrus, (mostly lemon), and a hint of hoppy lager. The taste is mild and not as with dry notes of lemons and sugar \mixed with some hops, dry malt and a touch of yeast. The aftertaste is a bit sweet with a touch of lemons. The carbonation is mild; the few small bubbles are quite fresh. The liquid is a bit sticky.

3.1/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Almost no head, quickly reduced to nothing. However the liquid has a peculiar gloss to it's clarity which I find interesting.

S: Half beer, half german pseudo lemonade.

T: The beer flavor is a lot more present than in most radlers. It's also not as sweet as most radlers. Pleasantly tart. And oddly tastes more like the average German beer than the Urtyp does. Different indeed.

M: The slightest bit astringent, with almost sandpapery carbonation.

O: A nice radler, and certainly milder (more beer like) than most.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

The liquid is clear; the colour is pale straw yellow with a tint of beige. The three finger head is airy and white. Some lacing.

The smell is sweet-tart with notes of citric acid, lemon peels, lemon candy and a hint of hoppy lager.

The taste is mild and not as sweet/artificial as other radlers. Some dry notes of lemons and sugar are mixed with some generic hops, dry malt and a touch of yeast. The aftertaste is a bit sweet with a touch of lemons.

The carbonation is mild; the few small bubbles are quite fresh. The liquid is a bit sticky.

A good radler, the perfect thirst-drencher for hot summer afternoons.
