This Radler poured with a bright lemon yellow hue that was capped by a fizzy, carbonated foam that collared away to nothing.

The nose is lemony, sort of sugary, with an obvious carbonated soda water.

The flavor is lemony as well but it's a sugary sweet artificial flavor. The finish is harsh and seems loaded with soda water, or Perrier like taste. I hate sparkling water and this reminds me of it.

The feel is so overly carbonated that it's harsh and prickly. It's almost too harsh to drink.

I drained poured this, because I should not undergo torture while drinking beer.

If I am being honest, there was a point in time that I loved this. Over time, less and less so though. It used to come across as a very nice citrus shandy. Refreshing and quaffable. Now it seems artificial and fake. There is also an aftertaste that the entire Leinenkugel brand seems to have that I do not like and have a hard time stomaching.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
