This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Leinenkugel's Grapefruit Shandy.
Its no secret that I am not a fan of the Radler/Shandy style of beer. I don't think that the big guy upstairs intended for lemonade and lager to be joined together. But this beer was not your average Shandy, largely because it did not taste like a Shandy.
The Grapefruit Shandy poured a deep cloudy yellow with about two inches of foam. But the foam was about the only resemblance this had to beer. The taste reminded me of store brand/no frills grapefruit juice. The alcohol content was imperceptible and at most it bore a passing resemblance to a wine cooler. If there was lager in this brew, I did not notice it.
Leinenkugel Grapefruit Shandy is certified kosher by the Orthodox Union, and has an OU on the label. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about this brew, please follow this link beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/710/159431.
