Josephsbrau Radler

This 4.0% radler is from the Josephsbrau Brewing Company of San Jose, California (it is my understanding they are contract brewed by Gordon Biersch). It is a store brand of Trader Joe's

The beer pours a light amber in color. There is nearly an inch of white head that quickly fizzles down. The aroma is well toasted grain with lemon over the top. The taste is the reverse, a blast of sour lemon over the toasted grain. The finish is dry with a very mild bitterness. The beer drinks easy, but this beer is out of balance. Better radlers mix their grain and lemon in more balanced proportion.
