Located just a little more than 100 miles south of Berlin, Germany lies the Radeberger Brewery.

There, in 1872, five men with a united dream of brewing better beer came to life and the Radeberger Pilsner was born. After several decades have passed, Radeberger is still admired and savored around the world by craft beer enthusiasts and newcomers alike.

This German pilsner is a golden-hued delight with a nice, medium-sized head that dissipates fairly quickly. Each whiff provides aromas reminiscent of a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios complemented by floral hops and a hint of orange peel. The initial sip is smooth and soft, with a slight touch of hop bitterness at the end, supplying flavors of lightly toasted grains and balanced by a touch of honey sweetness and bit of a citrus back end that is refreshing and easy to drink.

Radeberger is a perfect brew for the warmer season ahead, with a light body that pairs well with some barbecue chicken or bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers for those who want to spice it up a bit. You can find it at pubs and bars throughout the United States and territories, as well as in 12 fl. oz. bottles and 16.9 fl. oz. six-packs throughout the country.
