look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours hazy and a mild yellow color with minimal head in the 1/5" range. Aroma smacks of grapefruit harder than your 90s ipa bragging about C hops and triple digit ibus.

Taste is like drinking a Squirt soda pretty much. Lots of grapefruit and carbonation, little to nothing in the way of hops, malt or yeast to perceive here. Do I like the "taste"? Sure. It ain't bad, I like Squirt right? But in terms of do I like the taste of this "beer" that often isn't going to be what I am looking for. Super hot day around a body of water? Sure, break it out. But like, an indoors drinking session while watching sports? Prolly not. Thankfully, the mouthfeel isn't such that it is cut with sugar to balance it out.

In terms of shandy/fruit beers, there is nothing wrong with this one at all. Prolly the gold standard from what I've had over the years. For me, the problem is, when the conditions call for this beer, I'd rather just have a session ipa, pale ale, berliner, gose, gueze/lambic etc. . .

Pounder can into a Stone pint glass.

A: Pours hazy white like white grapefruit juice; hugely foamy white head sticks around forever.

S: A citrus assault of white grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime.

T: Same here - big white grapefruit flavors as well as half-sweetened orange juice, finishes with tart lemon and lime as well as a touch of a yeasty/bready malt quality from the beer. There are even white grape/white wine flavors as well.

MF: Big effervescence in a light, refreshing body. Spritzer-like.

O: A good Radler, still fairly sweet but much more natural-tasting than some of the other mixed beer options like Leinenkugel's Shandy. Like drinking grapefruit juice. Could be a great low-abv option for summer. Refreshing.

Half & half beer and citrus juice. Murky green but authentic flavours, very refreshing. Wonderful grapefruit nose. The gold standard for radlers.

Pours a pale yellow with a medium white head. Smells of grapefruit flavored sprite. Taste is grapefruit flavored sprite. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Overall, more of a soda feel than a beer. Good for summer.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light yellow- pale gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is all grapefruit. The taste is a very refreshing grapefruit with some beer qualities thrown in. This is a very refreshing drink.

Refreshing fruity beer, a summer staple. At only 40% beer and 60% grapefruit soda (as indicated on the cans) it's an easy drinker.

Grapefruit and sweet, almost too sweet. Carbonation great.

I can't believe that this is a beer. You can taste the grapefruit juice, but no beer at all.

I have love that beer but it is far from all the other beer I had in my life. If you want a real radler with just a taste of juice.
This is the one to have.

Just a nice refreshing beer. Grapefruit with some other citrus notes. Lower carbonation than expected with all the foam. Goes down super easy. A summer favorite.

Poured from bottle into pilsner flute. Hazy yellow appearance, nice head, lots of carbonation. As expected, aromas and flavors of grapefruit soda. Sweet, but not cloying. Refreshing, easy drinking. Better than I expected.
