I’d never liked beer. Until, that is, I discovered radler. Vaguely German for “cyclist”, this blend of half-lemonade, half-beer is perfect for girls, children and/or house pets on a hot summer afternoon. Or a cold winter night. Or a baptism. Or a funeral. Buy it bottled or make it yourself- it really is just half beer and half lemonade. Hell, some people even use Sprite (um, for the lemonade half, not the beer half…). Choose a light wheat ale for authenticity. Choose pink lemonade just because.
This particular bottle of radler was consumed in the “model society” “workers’ paradise” of Nova Huta, Krakow.
