COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Can. GRAPEFRUIT! It is just as advertised on the can. Color is a light reddish orange that is very cloudy. The aroma and taste is of a pink grapefruit. It is very very tart over the tongue but balances out some on the end.

Spab (2757) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky peach colour with pretty limited white head. Aroma is big tart grapefruit. Flavour is also very big on zesty grapefuit juice with a little maltiness. Not a lot of beer character but a pleasant, refreshing radler.

I’m not a fan of this style of beer but I must say this is one of the more authentic ones I’ve tried... Tastes like natural tart and bitter grapefruit juice with some beer in the background.

crossovert (9092) - Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2015
355ml can with a red pulltab. 3.5% abv. Pours a hazed grapefruit juice color. Aroma si zesty grapefruit, little lager notes, slight hop. Flavor is sharper than euro examples though this bills itself as a stiegl clone. Much more grapefruit bitterness which is refreshing as opposed to the sugary sweetness of its counterparts who are more justifiably mixed with gin over ice. It is grapefruit concentrate so don’t expect the "freshest" grapefruit flavor but it is zippy and not entirely too sweet. Juice-like body which can be improved upon, lacking a beer-like body,

Tastes like grapefruit juice, to which a bit of beer was added... Not a bad option if that’s what you’re looking for.

sulawang (707) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Visual: Aluminum can. Pours cloudy juice-like luminescent pinkish-peach, very fast dissipating small head, zero retention, a couple of small bubbles surfacing. Nose: grapefruit juice, faint lager malts. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: juice consistency, incoming juice + sour Mid-palate: very sour, medium tart, (MAIN) pink grapefruit juice, malt Finish: soft bitter peel, grapefruit acidic harshness, grapefruit juice finish. Summary: Very low carbonation, grapefruit dominates, barley takes a back seat. Since the juice was from concentrate, there’s not much complexity in the juice either. Too simple.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
[6004-20131023] Tap. Toasted orange leather and fragrant floral lychee aroma. Murky, orange body with no lasting head. Pungent orange bitter juice flavour has a ton of mango and lychee mixed in. Medium body is fairly bitter. Delicious but it’s more like an orange champagne than a beer. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

Ferris (7579) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Can - Fresh breakfast grapefruit juice. Cloudy orange with no head. Sweet light grapefruit juice, wish there was a bit more beer flavour, just lots of juice. Steigle has nothing to worry about.

ICCK!!! I hate this radler trend thats been happening. Not a bad brew actually, just not a fan of the style. Pours a bright orange and yellow with a pink touch. The nose is full of grapefrui and toasty wheat malt. Nice bitter finish.
