2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, pours hazy yellow with a white head. Grapefruit aroma is not too artificial, beer is detectable, it’s not overly sweet and there’s even a bit of bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is tasty and refreshing! Nice grapefruit flavor and aroma. It’s a little sweet and tart but not too sweet. The beer provides a nice base for the fruit juice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy yellow, little head. Aroma is grapefruit juice, slight sugar and tartness. Taste is grapefruit juice. Light grain in the aftertaste. Balanced sweetness / sourness. Not bad. Light body, low carbonation. OK.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a hazy pale orange color, topped with a medium and non-lasting off-white head. Gentle fruity, citrusy aroma. Taste starts sweet, bitter grapefruity feel following, a bit sugary. Fine when ice cold. A good radler.

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.
