On tap. Pours orange. No nose that I would notice. If there were some malt and hops taste in this I’d say it was balanced, because the lime taste (despite feeling artificial) is well blended into the rest. But like this? No no no.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Ueda. A deep copper gold with a light beige head that has a HUGE ginger ale/citrusy sprite like aroma. Nice enough but kind of overpowering. The body is the on the thin side with a club soda-ish carbonation. The flavor is a ginger ale/7 up with some cardboard, lime and light malts.Overall the flavor isn’t bad but it is more soda than beer like which isn’t so strange or off-style for a radler I guess.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330 ml bottle bought at Great Food hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty during the ’New Zealand food festival’ promotion.
Shandy-like pale dull golden colour; Half finger head with soapy white foam which faded in 20 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and very slight carbonation; Very sweet smell of Shandy-like lemonade, with sugar, carbo, light malt, artifical lemon, lime, soggy bread and very stale light grass; Light sweet taste of very light malt, with thin lemonade, aspartame, 7-Up, strong carbo, soggy bread, faint bitter hops and light grass; Mid to light body, thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is quite stale light lemonade and thin malt. Sweetness is low, but has that diet-coke like astpartame palate which annoys me a lot; Strong carbo and 7-Up taste isn’t very endearing, either... Hoppiness is faint grass in nose and taste. Notes of bitterness in background. Soda-pop finish; Wet after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: Wanna say something good about this one but it’s tough, when it’s Shandy from start to finish, annoying artificial sweetener and still-life lemonade to impress? If you don’t like aspartame like I do, then stay away from this one. The horror!

Not a bad little beer, refreshing as all eff. Much better than macro offerings with lime flavour already added. Still fake tasting. It’s a pale yellow zippy thing with a light spice and lots of citrus and lime. Hops were not too distinguishable over the additives but the malt was decent. Great on a scorcher but I try to avoid beers with artifical flavours now.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Getränk mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch süß nach Limonade. Geschmack ebenfalls süß, fruchtig nach Limonade, kein Biergeschmack.

The head is medium, the body blond. It smells lemonade-citrus-bit sour, sugary. The taste is like lemonade mixed with water. 1.6

On tap at the brewery in Greymouth, NZ
A very citrusy radler with lively carbonation and lime in addtion to the usual lemon. . Crisp and refreshing but so much citrus the lager base is masked.

A strong sweet fruity flavour, a bit like a good cider. Quite refreshing, couldn’t drink a heap but OK.
