Bavaria Brewery Grapefruit Radler Radler at 2.0% ABV (C$3.29 at Quarry Park Calgary Co-Op, 500 ml, best before 31-Dec-2016, acquired 29-May-2016, reviewed 29-May-2016)

Appearance: hazy dull pink with a short, short-lived pinkish head, no lacing. (2/5) Aroma: sweet grapefruit juice, faint grainy malt. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate tart. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, short duration sweet and tart finish. (2/5)

Well, it’s better than their lemon – but that’s not saying a lot. The grapefruit aromas don’t come across as being artificial, the way the lemon does, but it falls down on the tongue – and it’s still far too sweet. Basically a very slightly alcoholic soda pop, and I find soda far too sweet to drink, so I dunno why I’d want to drink this. (9/20)
