Thanks for this recipe! Have enjoyed this in Germany and there is nothing more refreshing in summer. I've used both Sprite and a European-style lemon-lime sparkling water that they sell here in our area (Meijer stores in Michigan/Indiana). The sparkling water style is closest to what I've had in Germany. The bubbles are important as is the sweetness of the lemon/lime drink - we've tried unsweetened, flavored seltzers and they don't do it - nor does regular, flat lemonade. Couldn't go to Germany this year but this made it come to me :)

Wonderful! This is so very refreshing and a great way to remove that bite from a strong beer. I have tried this with both dark and lite beer and I feel the results are the same. I use the 3/4 beer to 1/4 soda mixture with no ice and that is perfect for me. Thanks for posting this. Made for Fall 2011 PAC.

Hi there! I've enjoyed "The Radler" many a time, both abroad and here in the U.S. of A. Be sure to use a sparkling lemonade, as the lemony effervescence is essential for an authentic tasting Radler, in my opinion. Very light and refreshing,and a favorite even among non-beer drinkers. Thank you for a walk down memory lane. Prosit!

I made this last night for DH and I. It's so hot here and this was very refreshing. I used regular beer but I'll try a dark one next time. Made for I Recommend Tag, May 09. Thanks for posting!

This makes a nice, light, refreshing drink! I wanted something light after an afternoon of working outside and this hit the spot. I used diet Sprite in a 1-part-beer to 2-part-Sprite ratio. Thanks for posting this recipe! Made for the Best of 2008 event

Made for the Dec Photo Forum International Christmas Foods & Customs event & because I so favour the Czech, German & Polish cuisines ~ Your recipe intrigued me for its simplicity, the fact I often make coolers w/Sprite Zero & I am definitely 1 of those described in the intro who does not care for the taste of beer. Despite my aversion to it, I decided to use a 1:1 ratio of beer to Sprite Zero w/no ice as I dislike the watered-down effect of drinks w/ice. To my great & happy surprise, I *very much enjoyed* this bevy, found it esp thirst-quenching & now must tell my beer-loving DH he will have to share his supply w/me. :-)
