I believe it is considered a Radler.

I think a radler is beer and lemon-lime soda. Beer and cola is a diesel. I saw a lot of those in pre-made bottles in German gas stations when I was there.

Pils + Cola = Diesel
Alt + Cola = Krefelder
Kölsch + Cola = Drecksack

There might be several other regional words for this drinks

Off topic a bit, but I hear many cultures enjoy mixing their Coca Cola with their alcohols. I’ve heard something along the lines of people in Spain mixing their Red Wine with Coke.. or so my college roommate said.
