Fosters Hooch.

So, the new Fosters, Radler....or HOOCH to you and me.



Am I intrigued enough to try and find a bottle? No thanks, I know what a lemon alcopop tastes like, I was around when it was innovative and we actually had summers!

Utter waste of money.

That's well craft.

I may have to prove that any old fool can make this with a bottle of lager and a lemon!

I thought Hooch was alcoholic lemonade? This is shandy, or Radler ("cyclist") as the Germans call it.

It's still going to taste like an alcopop so the definition is irrelevant.

I can tell you what it is like, it is a decent enough lager shandy with better lemonade than lager if you like that sort of thing. Whether you are driving or whatever. I quite liked it but have difficulty finding it's "utility" as the only time I drink that sort of thing is a pub lunch where a pint of draught mixed beer/lemonade is a nicer than a coke.

I have also tried the Carlsberg Citrus and think that has a greater utility. The low alcohol lagers are watery piss even by the standards of standard lager. The addition of a bit of lime makes for a nice light low alcohol and low calorie drink. Nicer than soft drinks and one I might get in for summer bbq's

Becks Premier light is the lowest calorie but is quite lacking. It would be better off with the lime.

Carling Zest is just odd. Carlsberg tried before with lager & lime bottled. The 4.6% Edge. We will see if they succeed in the low alcohol version as of all the 2.8% louts, I thought it the better one.

See Cookie, now you've ruined NateDawgs vertical tasting!

It seems like pretty much every brewery in Germany does a bottled Radler. I confess I've not tried any of them yet though. If I could afford to get to EBBC this year I might think about bringing a selection for a group tasting. (-:
