Our European-style Radler is the drink of champions. Tart grapefruit juice and crisp lager combine for a refreshing summer hybrid - it’s like rocket fuel for leisure times.

Looks like grapefruit juice. Tastes like grapefruit juice. Has booze in it. Does the job on a hot day.

DuffMan (9283) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Can. Hazy medium gold, brief white head. White grapefruit juice, medium sweetness, with evident pale malt beer character, finishes with pithy dryness. A radler that I actually enjoy.

shrubber85 (10359) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Can. Lightly funky grapefruit peel and toffee malt aroma. Murky golden yellow with moderate head. Moderately sweet-sour grapefruit juice, toffee malt, and lightly bitter straw flavor. Nice grapefruit flavor but not much beer.

northropfrye (3199) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 7, 2016
Murky cloudy orange body, white head, quickly fades, no lacing. Aroma of sweet cereal and grapefruit. Taste is semi-bitter, sweet, pithy grapefruit. More like a grapefruit drink than a beer, but okay.

ljthiessen (1074) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
Can. Opaque, creamy peach colour with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly grapefruit, lots of citrus zest, a touch of cereal grains. Taste is much the same - starts quite tart grapefruit, turns sweet and mellow, and finishes dry with some more tartness. Really flavourful and balanced radler.

cards04 (2628) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
Pours a murky grapefruit colour. Smells and tastes just like grapefruit. Nice carbonation. I could crush 20 of these on a hot day. Very tasty.

Tallahassee, Fl - World Market, - 12 oz can. Slightly hazy medium orange pour, light quickly fading white head. Aroma of fresh grapefruit juice - -pleasant - but not very beery. Flavor is pretty much straight grapefruit. Slight hint of bubble gum. Clean, smooth mouthfeel.

Can from The Beerhive. Murky orange/red body with no head or lacing. Aroma of tomato juice, lychee and grapefruit. Flavour of sherbet, blood orange and cloudy lemonade. Thin body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. Sharp and tangy. Quite full on but I liked this more and more as it went on.
