PriorL (2313) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. APPEARANCE: very clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: lemon, fresh, where is the beer? TASTE: little watery, very refreshing though. Boring ’beer’ since it’s mostly lemon. But did somewhat enjoy it since it was very very hot that day!

JulienHuxley (3601) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at Früh am Dom. Clear ultra pale yellow pour with white head. Aroma is a lemon bomb, smells just like lemonade, no beer character. Taste is much the same, lightly sweetened lemon juice with nice refreshing carbonation. This was my introduction to German radlers, and I must admit I didn’t find it bad (but then again, I don’t find Belgian sweetened lambics bad either) The two products are just pretty far away from beer, but I’d take this over soda anyday.

330ml brown bottle. Pours out a very pale yellow, fast fading white cap. Nose has light lemons. Taste has waterd down lemony soda and weak grainy notes. Finishes dry with some weak watery beer notes. High carbonation and light bodied. Mildly refreshing but quite plain.

GoufCustom (929) - HONG KONG - JAN 24, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at TASTE in Olympian City, Tai Kok Tsui.

Clear light apple juice colour; Razor thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Small lacing and near zero carbonation; Quite pungent smell of malt, with apple cider, cider vinegar, sugar, lemon soda, ginger candy and wet cardboard; Close to medium sweet taste of light lager malt, with light lemon soda, lemonade,hint of dark fruits, soggy bread, light liquorices and shades of grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel not-too-sweet lemon soda being mixed with the Koelsch, which its dark fruits and malts are still testable. The beer-mix combination is quite bright and positive, which is quite alright… Hoppiness has some surprising spikes of liquorices to hop up the grassy taste, ended with lasting and flickering low sweet and bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste; very easy and sweet bitter to mouth.

Comments: The Koelsch and lemon soda are equally present, so while it’s mostly soda-like, the Koelsch taste is still well preserved with strong bitterness for a Radler. It’s sweet, yes, but also quite tasty, positive and refreshing. I like it.

SVD (705) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2013
33CL bottle at home, pale yellow with a almost not existing white head, aroma is a bit of lemon, taste is the same if you mix 7up/sprite with beer, which is not bad. Overall not a bad radler but it’s not one the best i have had.

bierkoning (10728) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Very pale blonde. Lemonade aroma. Sweet sugary lemonade flavor. The Kölsch flavors bite the dust. Refreshing enough, though.

Taste comprises citrus notes, light cereals, straw, herbal tones. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation, sweet finish. Ok Rad Schmad!

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2013
Blassgelb, dafür viel feinporiger Schaum. Leichtes Citrusaroma. Beginnt limonadig nach Zitrone und wird dank des Kölsch ganz leicht herb. Im Sommer bestimmt ein guter Durstlöscher, hat für mich aber zu wenig Biergeschmack.
