This light, refreshing beer is popular during those hot days of summer. This is our clone version of the beer called a Summer Shady. This style of beer mixed with lemonade is extremely popular in Germany and is called a "Radler" which means cyclist in German and we given to bicyclists enduring the summer heat. With this recipe you can either add packets of lemonade at bottling or kegging or you can mix beer with fresh lemonade before drinking like the German's do!
