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.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Pale and opaque straw lemon body. A sudsy and snapping white head, not too bright in color, at about a solid three fingers. Dissolves somewhat quickly to a soap like thinned collar and minimal puck. Aside from the head this could pass for a nearly turbid IPA.

Smells like grapefruit juice in the supermarket. Light, a little bitter oil, and very sticky smelling with some decent sweetness. Not much beer sense but also keeps the soda quality on the nose to a minimum.

On the palate. Well, you just can't fault this for what it is. Soda wet but also thick enough to just be a little larger. Tangy grapefruit, light sugars and a nice zip without the gaseous carbonation. Light pops of grapefruit and zest, sugar sweet as if dusted right on the fruit. Not much beer character but there isn't really supposed to be.

Tastes like fruit juice made better, and stays away from sugary soda qualities. A real simple refresher.

Great summer time beer. Has a really great grapefruit flavor to it. Goes down easy. One of my favorites. My wife hates beer but she loves this one.

This is not a beer, it is a concoction, a shandy. Beer with fruit soda. So I will rate it as for the style. Poured into a pint glass from a can. No foam, no lacing, just a thin ring of bubbles at the meniscus. It smells like an orange soda, except grapefruit. Squirt Ⓡ ? It is cloudy, like there is juice in there. In the mouth, not sticky, just the right sweetness. Grapefruit, rock candy, and a fine fizz. In German, radler means cyclists, as in riding bicycles, and this is made for them. It cuts the scum in the mouth without much alcohol, about half what a lager would be. So you can ride and be refreshed without much of a buzz. Perfect!
Edit: Poured another into the same glass, got a little foam this time. That's all.
