1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Beer Cartel 150815. I can’t say that I have ever drank a Radler and thought to myself I wish I bought more of that and it certainly didn’t happen on this occasion. I am sure that in the scheme of things Radlers have their place but generally the ones that I have had have not been that good. This grapefruit version was sickly sweet, so much so that it took just as long to drink as it would to drink a big imperial stout. Soapy soft white head on top of a murky looking orange beer that struggled to showcase the grapefruit.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fruchtiger Beginn mit mild süßen Noten und angenehm trocken säuerlicher Grapefruit. Spritzig, etwas herb, süffig. Etwas bitterer Nachhall, was aber wohl eher von der Grapefruit stammt. Dennoch gut! 5/6/7/7/9/6

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 mL can from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC. Pale, cloudy yellow pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit juice. The taste is fruity with grapefruit rind, lemon zest, and orange zest notes but not as fruity as the aroma led me to believe. As a beverage this isn’t bad but it hardly seems like beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Cloudy pale orange with a small white head. Smells like grapefruit juice, maybe some light floral hops. Much sweeter than expected from the aroma. The grapefruit is there but there’s much more lemonade. And the beer is just about detectable - a little crackery malt of no particular quality and a tiny bit of bitterness. Does make the make the whole thing less cloying than soft drink, although maybe the grapefruit would have done that by itself. Not very beery but pleasant and refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent radler. Aroma of citrus. Light lemon color but cloudy. Watery palate and highly carbonated, like a soda. Strong citrus with an aftertaste of grapefruit. Sweeter than I prefer in a beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle from a supermarket.
Pale orange, cloudy body, with a big, unstable, frothy, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, lemonade.
Tastes of bitter-sweet grapefruit, juicy.
Medium mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes soft, not too sweet, a bit bitter, with grapefruit.
Not bad. Doesn’t taste like beer at all, but like a refreshing grapefruit juice, that isn’t too sweet fortunately. One of the few drinkable Radlers.

(bottle - 330 ml) Cloudy orange with a fizzy white head. Lots of grapefruit and citrus in the aroma. Flavor is lots of grapefruit with a dry and tart finish. Easy to drink with the low alcohol.
