Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Spar market in Igls, Austria on 12/12/2012. Colour: Medium-dark yellow with light gold tinge. No head. Nose: Lemon of course, but also mint and touch of lime? Stale bread gasping for air behind all the citrus. A touch of chardonnay. Taste: Medium-high sweet (but not as sweet as some Radler beers), light bitter, medium-light sour. The citrus does not add a high sour element which is nice. There is an icing sugar lacing about. Soda pop (7-up) does make an appearance. Better than some but still just not beer.

Lemonade soda flavor. Good for brunch, but you could probably make it yourself quite easily by mixing beer and lemon soda.

500 ml bottle pours a clear golden color with practically no head or lacing. Smells like lemonade. Flavor is mostly sweet lemonade, with justy enough hops to convince you that this might be beer. Body is light to medium with average carbonation. Tastes sweet with lemony finish. This is not what I normally look for, but it is much better than any American shandy I’ve tried.

500 ml bottle a friend, Cat, had at BrewRiver because she’s pregnant. Pours a super pale, clear gold with minimal carbonation or head. The aroma has lots of grainy cereal, lemon soda, bread, and crackers. The flavor has more lemon pop to it, more sweet than tart, with bread and cereal. Light-bodied, with soft carbonation and a sweet, bready mouthfeel. Works for what it is.

Light and refreshing as a radler should be. Lemon overpowers the lager a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7128) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
500mL bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up mostly sweet lemon soda with a touch of tart peel evident.. soft bready backing stayed in the background. The flavor found a blend of sweet and tart lemon throughout, amplified by prickly carbonation.. mostly lemon soda on the quick, prickly finish. Light-bodied and bubbly with carbonation.. watery at times and not beer-like, but it was refreshing and drinkable.

Looks very similar to champagne when poured. Aroma is a little awkward - smells a little sour and maybe a little stale. Flavor is pretty good but is too watered down. The lemon soda overpowers the beer, which is unfortunate. A good choice if you’re going to get behind the wheel, but that’s about all this one is good for.

50% Beer 50% Lemon Soda. Interesting combination, that is a little more heavy on the lemon flavor than I like. Would be an OK choice for this style of beer on a nice hot summer day.

KeefOz (892) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 500ml can. Poured a clear golden amber colour with no head so did not lace. Moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of sweet lemonade (artifical lemon). Tasted like sweet lemonade. Light body and a bit watery. Finish slightly lemony. More like a low alcohol lemonade than a beer. Much better than I expected. Easy drinking.

On tap@ Bent Elbow - Pours a murky pale yellow. Lots of carbonation, short-lived small cap. Aroma is an unappealing cross between lemon pop and light beer. Flavor is uneventful and follows aroma profile. Clean, dry, tart....a thirst quencher for those who like thi kind of concoction, I’m just not one of them.
