The Pump House Brewery Limited Crafty Radler Grapefruit & Tangerine Radler at 4.7% ABV | 5 IBU (C$3.39 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 29-May-2017, reviewed 30-May-2017)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with one finger of fizzy pinkish-tinted head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (2/5) Aroma: grapefruit, sweet tangerine, light grainy malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (6/10) Palate: light body, fizzy carbonation, semi-sweet tart finish. (3/5)

As usual, I enjoy Radlers too much to be truly objective in my rating. Is this a high-quality, nuanced and challenging brew? No. Would I drink another 5 or 6 on a patio? Yes. It’s sweet, but not cloying, and the flavours seem at least reasonably authentic. And nearly 5% ABV for a Radler? Hell yeah! (11/20)

5.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
