Hazy steely pink color. Citrusy aromas and flavors of lemon drink mix, buttery toasted lemon bread, and bit of fruit punch gum with a round, tangy, spritzy, fruity light-to-medium body and a brisk finish with overtones of lemonade, pink grapefruit, and buttered toast finish. A candied yet dry shandy; a fun poolside beverage.

Radlers and Shandies are beers mixed with lemonade, lemon soda, or other citrus juices or sodas. The styles originated in Germany and England, respectively, and are now common in other countries. Because of their fruity sweet nature, they are particularly refreshing and carefree summer sippers, even for those that don't normally drink or even enjoy beer. The base beer is usually a lighter style lager or ale and their ABVs rarely go above 5%.
