At a glance, it seems this beer is rated poorer than it should be based on a distaste for "fruity beers," and not because it is a poor representation of the style.

Appearance: Pours a vibrant yellow hay color with an opaque haze. The head is minimal and doesn't stick around for long as the radler's carbonation eats through it.

Aroma: Smells of fresh lemon and sweet key lime. Reminiscent of homemade lemonade or limeade. An absolute pleasure to sniff.

Taste: Nothing too complex, a lovely carbonated lemon beverage combined with the standard Stiegl pils. The pils by itself isn't anything to call home about, but its slight malt and pleasant breadiness compliments the sweet lemonade and crisp tartness this radler brings to the table. Absolutely lovely, although it can be cloyingly sweet if drank in excess.

Mouthfeel: This radler is very carbonated, some would say too carbonated, but I prefer it this way. As previously stated, the carbonation will eat through the head and lacing, but on a hot summer day, the trade-off is well worth it. Few mass produced radlers are as spritzy and full bodied.

Overall: For my personal tastes, this is my go to lemon radler. The carbonation may be too high for some, and the sweet lemon notes may be too overpowering for some, but to me, it is the ideal ratio I look for. It is a wonderful replacement for soda pop and a very simple building block for beer cocktails (add a shot of gin or vodka to this and you are really cooking). It would be rated higher if people thought of it as a fun summer radler and possible mixed drink ingredient rather than a standalone "fruit/vegetable beer."

It doesn't taste like a beer, but that's because it's almost half lemonade. Still really really good though

An excellent beer... For the ladies. This is not a bad thing, if you have a girlfriend or wife you want to introduce softly into the beer world then this a great example of a Lemon shandy. Nice on the palate well carbonated with a strong lemon presence. Something you expect of a mixed drink, my girlfriend detested microbrews until I had her try this and needless to say every time we beer shop she goes out of her way to grab a few. The appearance of this hybrid is deceiving, seems like a low calibre lager fizzy and yellow.
