thewolf (12861) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2017
Can, [email protected], Flensborg. Pours fairly murky orange with a small, frothy white head. Aroma has lots of grapefruit, a bit like grapefruit candies, a bit of soda pop. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has again lots of bitter and sugary sweet grapefruit. Quite dry finish, with that great bitter grapefruit finish.

radassace (422) - SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2017
330ml can from M&S. Pours hazy orange amber with a small off white head. Nose is pink grapefruit but with a good bready biscuit malt behind it. Light and nicely carbonated in the mouth. Taste is pink grapefruit, doughy bready malt, caramel and pine. Nice bitter pine resin finish. Great beer !

zacgillbanks (5548) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Can from Marks & Spencer, Metrocentre, Gateshead. Hazy straw coloured with a thick white head. It has a rich grapefruit and pine flavour with smooth toffee, citrus, more pine and more bitter grapefruit on the finish. Very good, especially for the ABV.

KeefOz (1927) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2017
BB 06/07/18. Poured a hazy amber with a one-finger bright white dense foamy head that retained well but laced poorly. Carbonation low, average and fine. Aroma strongly of nice fresh grapefruit; very realistic grapefruit and if any other aromas exist these are masked by the grapefruit. taste is nice fresh realistic grapefruit with sweet orange notes; very tasty. Light to medium body. Smooth and slightly dry with very tasty grapefruit all the way through. Very very nice.

3.4
Nonshaugen (669) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 33 cl, can conditioned, BB 08/09/18. Hazy, golden amber, thick white-ish head, low carbonation, moderate amount of powdery sediments. Aroma is, of course, grapefruit all the way, a bit grassyness at the back. Medium mouthfeel, some hop resin, dry, low carbonation. Flavour is, again, grapefruit. Enough to overpower most other flavours that may be in there. But you can, actually, at the very end, sense its origins, the classic Lucky Jack that made Lervig famous (my personal opinion).

3.5
martpez (351) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 Gently done. Was expecting a tart sweetness but there is none of that. The grapefruit gives it a nice fresh fruity edge with the hops coming in at the end. Very fizzy feels like a very grown up radler. Nice. Good for summer!

3.6
jmgreenuk (10147) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 24, 2017
33cl can. Poured a hazy golden colour with a frothy, short-lived white head. The aroma is yeast, tart grapefruit. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a crisp, fresh, light fruity citrus, light hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

3.3
Svesse (8841) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2017
(Draught at Kaschk, Berlin, 23 Aug 2017) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit and a touch of tea. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, citrus peel, tea and a balanced citric bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. The grapefruit gets quite dominant, putting the malt in the background and making the beer a bit one-dimensional, but it's fresh and tasty. Quite nice.

3.2
bartlebier (4161) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2017
33cl bb04/2018 from Gulating Trondheim. - Comes close to emulating Stiegl Grapefruit Radler in the medium of a clean, Scandinavian-executed global APA: well-done with on-point bitter lemon zest punching through from aroma into taste. Quenching, none too sticky. Just a shame about all those over- and outplayed hops lurking underneath the candied sugar grapefruit and the ransom, especially in situ: refreshment/NOK ratio is still rather low compared to a €1 Stiegl Radler.
