Pale yellow color with small white head. It has artificial lemon taste. Not something i would buy once more.

kraddel (8901) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2017
Pours very clear, pale yellow. Small white head with not much consistancy. No lacing. Smell is intense, citrus ( lemon ) sweet, sugary, tad malt drips trough as well ( white bread ) Taste is cloyingly sweet on the background, but got enough aromatic's to compete and maintain a freshness vibe. The maltshows, as some white bready backbone that makes this a tad better than you'd expect. Still, it ends very sticky, sugary, which I really do not enjoy.

can. Golden with one finger head. Sweet lemonade, and crappy euro lager fusion. Despite the low rating, I didn't hate it, but there's no mistaking this for a quality beer.

Can in Seattle. Soft white foam, very pale and fizzy yellow body. Lemon nose, sweet and artificial. Solid, but ugly, lager feeling comes through sip before a hit of lemon syrup. Not the most refreshing radler, and thus I question the point. Grassy malt undertones. Fair.

superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2017
500 ml can into pint glass, canned on 4/8/2017. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy pale straw/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lightly tart lemons, lemon peel, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of lemonade, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big lightly tart lemons, lemon peel, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, light pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy hop bitterness and lemon tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemons, lemon peel, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, pepper, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of lemonade, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/tart/bitterness balance, and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Moderate increasing dryness from bitter/tartness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly grainy/sticky, and lightly acidic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 2.5%. Overall this is a delicious radler! All around nice robustness and balance of lemonade, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the low ABV, with perfectly balanced lemonade and pilsner beer profile. A very enjoyable offering, and great style example.

This is a good radler as far as they go. The lemon pop is what you notice first but the beer definitely comes through pretty well. You get the grassy herbal hops in the nose and a touch of crackery malt coming though. I’m not sure I’ll drink this stuff ever again now that I have the tick but, what can I say, it doesn’t taste awful.

Also dieses Radler schmeckt echt lecker! Goldgelb im Glas mit schöner Krone! Schöne frische Zitrone, leicht herber Abgang!

theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Aroma is lemon zest and pilsner malt. Appearance is light straw crystal clear with small foamy white head. Taste is sweet lemon and pils malt, honey.Light hop bitterness, but a sweet beer. Palate is light and crisp, zesty.Overall very nice. You can taste the quality Pilsner... minus the hopping. Many of these taste like wine coolers, this one doesn’t.
