3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Call me bad names. Don’t respect me as a rater. Delete my rating as "illegitimate". I don’t care. What I would say is that, even though I was surprised to learn that Ratebeer accepts Radlers--whereas, maybe 7 to 10 years ago there was much criticism of them as not worthy of rating--and even though this still isn’t really beer, it is incredibly more-ish. I loved this one. I wasn’t quite so taken with the grapefruit one, but from the color of the pour, to the aroma (fresh fruit), to the incredibly easy to drink flavor and body...like fruit punch on a hot day...this was really tasty. No, it’s not good by beer geek standards. But by hedonism standards, I’ll guzzle this and it’s 2.5% abv any day. Can bought in Skopje, Macedonia.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a quite hazy dark red/orange color, topped with a small reddish head that immediately disappears.
The aroma is of course sweet and citrusy, orange.
The taste is very sweet, sugary, with a feel of an orange. A tiny amount of bitterness in the finish, but mostly sweet.
Drinkable and refreshing, although tends to be too sweet sometimes.

A whale cheers to Paul and the missus. Not sure what to say... Tastes like Passiona/Passito or whatever that soft drink is called. Dayem

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can shared at my 5K tasting at Bruce’s pad, thanks to Paolo for this one, 13/11/13.
Reddish orange with a thin off white covering.
Nose is red grapefruit, sugars, orange sherbet.
Taste comprises passion fruit, red grapefruit, sweet syrupy sugars.
Light to medium body, moderate carbonation with a little prickle, sweet finale.
Too sweet for my liking as a radler, the finish wasn’t as refreshing as I’d expect for the style.
