JoeMcPhee (8788) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
Can from the LCBO. Pours a hazy yellow-orange colour with a fast-fading white head. The aroma is pretty much solid grapefruit - it also has the authentic sharpness of grapefruit (in contrast to sodas like Fresca that purport to be grapefruit). I swore Iíd never enjoy a Radler, but dammit, I kind of like this. Itís a whole lot more grapefruit than it is beer - but itís tasty enough.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 11.2 oz green twist off bottle. This is a pleasant radler, one of the best out there. Can is better and best yet throw in some ice and a shot of gin. Absolutely killer

jercraigs (8220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
2014-12-04. Hazy pastel yellow body with a tiny white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly fruity, sweet grapefruit character. Flavour is similar, sweet grapefruit. Just tart enough to be refreshing, Iíd prefer more so for my own tastes. Smooth average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Pretty nice. Simple but quite quaffable. Enjoyable. Can from the LCBO, Toronto

DrSilverworm (7800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
11.2oz bottle, shared by Jay. Mildly hazy whitish yellow color. Thin white head, little loose lace. First impression: I like this way, way better than the lemon version. Grapefruit soda is much more interesting than lemon soda, it turns out. Less sweet overall, too. More of a tart taste, lightly zesty. Nice grapefruit and sugar aroma. Light to medium body. Crisp, lighter carbonation. Just a very light stickiness in the finish, I donít mind it at all. Liked this way more than I expected to, especially considering how much I didnít care for the lemon.

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2014
500 ml can. BB 03/01/2015. (Merkur) Seiersberg, Austria. Hazy greyish yellow colour with a tiny white head. Lemon, grapefruit and mild malt in the aroma. Quite natural lemon and grapefruit in the flavour with some mild sweetness, mild bitterness and notes of malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle. "Contains not more than 3.2 percent of alcohol by weight". Cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. Pleasant fresh grapefruit juice aroma. Sweetish and tart grapefruit flavor with a light bitterish citric note. Not very beer like, but very nice, clean and refreshing. A lot better than any other Radler/Shandy Iíve tried.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
On tap at the Draft House, Tower Bridge on 4 December 2010. Another of the Austrian beers that this place seems to make something of a speciality in. Lots of grapefruit. Sweet. The tartness of the grapefruit helps to counterbalance the sweetness. Quite refreshing. Of course itís a bit of a confection but better than I expected. Maybe that impression was enhanced by being a passable palate-cleanser after the pretty dire Schremser Naturpark.

Bottle. Pale yellow pour with almost no head. Aroma and taste of lemon and grapefruit. Very tasty and refreshing.

DuffMan (7381) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. It was 37 degrees in Medicine Hat today. This was chosen to share with my wife over salmon dinner on our sweltering deck. Aaahhhh, summer... finally! Anyhoo, on with the rating. Hazy blonde, poorly retaining head. My wife thought it smelled like grapefruit hand soap. Iíd have to agree. Sweet grapefruit cocktail flavour with a certain husky grainy flavour that is barely detectable once your palate recalibrates to the sugar load. I only enjoyed this because of the weather-- otherwise too sweet for my liking. Iím learning that radler styles just donít do it for me.

A Mes rate. Tap at the Draught House.
Lemon yellow with no head and came with ice in it. Full on lemon and grapefruit aroma with a hint of tobacco. Pleasant enough. Flavour is exactly the same. More lemonade than anything. Great stuff.
