"Bottled(500ml). -Extremely piss yellow coloured, almost no head, strong lemony nose. Typical sweet lemony taste with some weak hoppiness in the finish. Low carbonation. Label on my bottle was different than this one."
Seems to sum up what a shandy/r*dler should be like!! (Have to say "r*dler", as DB's lawyers will sue my arse!).
I remember being in a home brew store a year or so ago and there was a guy in there asking how to make DB. The store owner replied something like "Sorry you can't make DB in Christchurch as we have a clean water source!"
Now the DB brand (draught) supposedly embodies typical kiwi values of strength, honesty, hard work and loyalty, and rewards great mates. It sounds like DB's great mates are more like the Broke Back Mountain Man, than your next door neigh-greenman-bour.
So the tag line for the next six months needs to be:
Mates don't let mates drink shit beer. (AKA DB)
I had never tried a the "radler" untill a few months back. I can say it is a rather crap beer. Water would definatly be my preference. As to DB, well arn't most big companies all the same? big bullies!
I just didn't order any, but yes, I saw plenty of the same thing. I did come across a few bottled ones in Supermarkets though. Also, up north it tended to be fanta, down south it seemed to be lemonade! :) Regional Radler!
