500ml can. Yup. It’s a little sweet. Yup, it doesn’t taste entirely "natural". Yup, I just mowed the lawn, and I’m sweating like a fat man at a buffet table, however, I’m enjoying it. Pours a clear pale gold with a LARGE off-white head. Light malt notes on the nose with faint yeast, and then basically just a jolt of lemon candy. As for taste, more the the same. Slightly sweeter than I would like with lemon sucker like notes and faint malt, and that’s exactly how it follows through until the end. I’m not sure what people expect when you halve a beer with soda, but this is totally decent. I don’t hate it, I don’t love it, but it does succeeds at what it needs to be.

Can from the lcbo. Hazy yellow, huge white head. Aroma of very sweet lemonade, and not much else, maybe some musty wheat? Mouthfeel. Is oddly full, and the carb is over the top. The finish is cloying, and slightly artificial tasting. Meh.

pintbypint (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
500ml can. Clear, yellow, surprisingly large white head. Nose has light lemonade notes. Sweet taste with lemonade notes. Plain finish, just a bit of light grains. Body is light and carbonation is medium. Not much beer character, soda like. Easy to drink.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2015
Poured a clear light amber with minimal white froth. Aroma of light citrus and soft malt. Light body, flavour is inoffensive lemon with a slight hint of alcohol.

lusikka (7053) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
330 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Munich, Germany. Pours a clear yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of lemon and white bread, not much else. Flavour of yeast, lemon, some white grapes and very mild maltiness. Quite strong sugary sweetness which gets stronger towards the end. Light bodied. Not your best radler.

Calisky (1630) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 22, 2014
Couleur dorée, légère mousse. Nez de limonade et lime. Gout de limonade, citronné avec note de malt. Corps moyen. Ca passe pour une radler.

DuffMan (7886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Oops-- almost forgot I tried this piece of garbage! I’m at least getting a tick out of it. Total soda-pop artificial overly sweet watery nastiness. A great example of the worst of the styles. Bravo.

Decent and refreshing panache with plenty of lemon candy. More for thirsty times on the beach rather than beer tasting sessions :)

Tart, malty, yeasty, sweet. Fairly crappy overall. At least it was cheap, that’s about all it had going for it.
