Ok I wasn't actually looking for this particular grapefruit beer. I was looking for Leinenkugel's Grapefruit Shandy at my local grocery store. Unfortunately they were all out and the liquor department assistant saw my sad face and persuaded me to try Stiegl Radler. He said "everyone" compares it to Leinenkugel's Grapefruit. So the sucker that I am purchased the 4 pack of cans. I don't like to discriminate beer and this guy was a good salesman! He even pointed out that this beer was on sale for $7.99! Is that even a sale for a 4 pack??? Well I bought it needless to say. Big Mistake....I was looking for a beer!! This is no way a beer. It shouldn't even be in the same category as beer. I think it said Malt Beverage on the can. Don't get me wrong, I like grapefruit. That's why I was looking for the grapefruit flavor in the first place, but this is definitely NOT A BEER. No beer taste at all. This tastes like a grapefruit flavored Squirt (pop, soda). And that's fine too...but this shouldn't be in the beer category. I like beer that actually tastes like beer, and I also like the fruity beers like Blue Moon, Leinenkugel's Shandies, and brewery sweet beers. But this Stiegl Radler is definitely for people who don't like that beer taste or who don't really drink. I tried wine coolers that were stronger than this! You won't catch a buzz on this that's for sure unless you drink it all day, which I don't recommend because it may give you a bad stomach with all that sweetness and citrus flavors. 1 or 2 but that's it! Sorry I had to give it a thumbs down because I was looking for a beer with some Grapefruit flavor. I'm actually more mad at myself for believing that guy at the liquor department!! Definitely not worth the price. Save your money and buy grapefruit pop instead!

Poured 16.9 oz bottle into snifter glass. 3.2% abv

Appearance- Pours a light tan/pear color. Thin head that fades fast. Very hazy/cloudy.

Smell- Grapefruit floral aroma.

Taste- Grapefruit abounds, cane sugar and perhaps a touch of honey.

Mouthfeel- Thin in body with mild carbonation.

Overall- This one is much more a soda than a beer but still good. Not much in the way of complexity at all. But is what it says it is. Lots of natural, fresh grapefruit
