"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.."
"I do not like beer. Never have. Never will...... But whoa baby this is good stuff. I found that you can use any ratio you like. I prefer 1/3 beer : 2/3 lemonade. Any beer or lemonade will do in a pinch. I know. Cuz I was in a pinch!!!!! Super refreshing, loved it!"
"Refreshing drink. Thanks."
"Tasty, refreshing drink! I used Italian Style sparkling lemonade (as that is what I had on hand), with Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Might add a squeeze of fresh lemon next time, for a little added zing. Reminds me of one summer in my youth, sipping these and "Weiss mit Schuss" with my friends on the terrace of the shopping mall in Augsburg. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Prost!"
"THE most refreshing drink in the summer :0) Ri"
"I discovered this recipe 3 days ago, and I've had one every night for 3 nights! I love this very much. It may sound strange at first, but it is definitely a must try and a keeper!"
"My favorite way to make Radler here is to use lemon-flavored Fanta. If I can't get my hands on that, I usually use Spite or another lemon-lime soda. Prost!"
"I saw this Friday and decided to try it after work. I neglected to read the directions clearly, I mixed the lemonade concentrate to my beer. I thought 1:1 might be a bit much so I used much less. It was really good. BUT I will try it again tonight and follow the directed properly. Thanks for the recipe."
"Wonderful! I like Radler a lot. The taste is a great mix of bitter beer and sweet lemonade and it is really refreshing. Best wishes from Germany. "
