I spent some time in wonderful Munich Germany last fall and found myself drawn to the beer taps to ask for Radler after Radler. I was a solitary traveler just trying to soak up some of the culture and was so curious what they were mixing up with their beer as I watched them pour. So I asked and have tried to make my own version with what we have to work with here in the US.

Our family has been mixing beer with lemonade for more than 50 years. This is a great recipe when your hot working in the yard. We made this in Cuba, we call it Bull, we mix equal parts of beer with lemonade, it's wonderful.

I am married to a German, and *gasp* don't like beer. His Dad mixed me up one of these on my first visit, and I fell in love! 7-Up or Sprite work pretty well since the German lemonade is not available in the US. It may sound weird, but it is WONDERFUL!

Others have mentioned it..and I agree..instead of 1:1 beer to lemonade..use 2:1:1 beer, sprite, lemonade...it keeps the fizz factor and a slice of lemon helps..I also recommend Schultheiss Berliner Weisse, or Paulaner Hefe-Weizen for your beer..
