2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp peach coloured body with a copper glow and a thin, half centimetre tall pure white head - looks fairly nice, for the style especially. Aroma of lemons, malt, yeast, grain, coriander seed, curacao and sugars - very nice and refreshing, for sure. Light-bodied; Strong lemon and fake sugar flavours at first with some mild malts and a hint of curacao and full orange flavours with the malt noticeable at the end and not in a great way. Aftertaste shows a light, airy, refreshing beer, but the saccharin and fake sugar flavour is noticeable - but the lemon comes through decently. Overall, a decent radler, but that’s about it - what you’d expect for a summer beer, but not anything great or really worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 02-September-2013.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate lemon, lime, and a touch of grass. It pours a transparent gold with a small soapy head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a thin ring. There is some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a real quick dose of lightly sweet honey. It quickly turns to light-moderate lemon/lime juice in the finish along with a touch of grass and grain. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it tastes like a pilsner with two shots of straight lemon/lime juice. I certainly don’t find it offensive. For what it’s worth, I’d drink it over Summer Shandy.

Draft at Reno's east. Pale copper with a light head. Super sweet and a little weird.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, drank right out of it, aromas of classic pilsner, hay, light musk with some limes thrown in. Flavors are classic pilsner with artifical lime juice. This did tatse better than a bud light lime.

The aroma is radlerish it seems to be slightly lemony but has a dirty funky quality. The appearance is golden with an average head. The taste is very refreshing with plenty of malt. The palate is smooth. Overall it’s nice.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer smells a bit like Nair, or a home perm product. At times, I got whiffs of black pepper and breakfast sausage. Bad label, hazy golden oak color, thin white head, standard US longneck. Not bad, picnic fare. Muted lemon-lime flavors, not sweet. Light body, not too fizzy, some mineral water impressions in the finish. I get the feeling that this was a closeout sort of purchase by ABC. ABC, Bull Run.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
An easy drinking radler. More traditional than most American versions. It is pretty heavy on the flavoring though, that could be toned town. Lots of lime.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear bright yellow color with a decent head that fades quickly. Lemon and lime aroma with a tiny amount of pale malt and grain. Taste is lots of lemon and lime that overpowers the malt a bit. Very smooth and refreshing though. Good summer beer for the right occasion. Certainly better than the awful Bud Light Lime.
