Koninklijke Grolsch Grolsch Radler – Radler at 2% ABV

Koninklijke Grolsch Grolsch Radler Radler at 2% ABV (C$2.69 at Okotoks Co-Op, 500 ml, best before 27-Mar-2019, acquired 1-Sep-2018, reviewed 1-Sep-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale straw with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: sugary lemon, grainy pale malt, hint of grassy weeds. (5/10) Taste: high sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (5/10) Palate: light body, prickly carbonation, sweet sticky finish. (3/5)

The Missus thought it was fine, but I found it way too sweet. No surprise when I checked the label and confirmed, yep, fructose added. I’m an utter sucker for Radlers, but even so this is pretty marginal – I mean, the base beer is already pretty light, and hitting it with sugary lemonade like this just washes it out completely. Think Bud Light and Lemon Pledge, and you’re not far off the mark… (11/20)
