TORONTO, May 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Just in time for patio season, Stiegl Grapefruit Radler, a refreshing fruit beer from Austrian brewer Stiegl, will be available in 500 mL cans across Canada. Imported by McClelland Premium Imports, Stiegl Grapefruit Radler combines the purity of 50 per cent Stiegl Goldbrau lager with 50 per cent pure grapefruit juice and all natural ingredients.

"Stiegl Grapefruit Radler is the perfect summer beer; it's light-bodied, clean, crisp and refreshing," says Guy McClelland, president of McClelland Premium Imports. "And for the health-conscious consumer with an active lifestyle, it's low in calories and only 2.5 per cent."

Radler, which means "cyclist" in German, is a beer style invented by Bavarian cyclists. Seeking a great tasting, low alcoholic beverage they could take on bike rides and picnics, Bavarian cyclists blended a 50/50 mixture of Bavarian lager and fruit juice. The refreshing result is now known as the Radler.

Stiegl Grapefruit Radler has a distinct tart flavour, citrusy aroma, lively effervescence and natural cloudiness, making it a perfect summer thirst-quencher.

The refreshing flavours of Stiegl Grapefruit Radler are best accentuated by serving in its signature curved, glass.
