Big Shark Tangerine Radler
Urban Chestnut Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Did you know the Radler was invented in 1922 by Franz Kugel, a Bavarian tavern owner?
Legend has it that a group of cyclists tumbled into his bar, thirsty and exhausted. He knew his stash was running low, so, in a stroke of genius, he added sparkling lemonade to his beer kegs. He named it after the German word for “cyclist” and — voilà! The Radler was born.
Today, the award-winning* team at Urban Chestnut — whose brewmaster hails from Bavaria — invites you to quench your thirst with their own spin on the German classic: Big Shark Tangerine Radler.
To craft it, they partnered with their buddies at nearby Big Shark Bicycle Co. Together, they blended a Pale Lager with their house-made tangerine soda. Each sip is reminiscent of a scoop of tangy orange sorbet, but with a pleasant crispness and a hint of freshly baked bread.
You don’t have to be a cyclist to enjoy this beer. But it’s so easy-drinking, you can down can after can and still bike, hike, or climb to wherever your adventure takes you!
*Urban Chestnut was named St. Louis’ Best Regional Brewery, and they’re back-to-back winners of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Wastewise Awards for Sustainability!

Tangerine flavor is definitely there. Refreshing.
This might be my new favorite summer beer
Light and refreshing. Great for a hot summers day.
Light and refreshing, great citrus notes hit the nose during the pour. Could crush many of these on nice summer day
Very citrusy and nice lemon tart. Would be a great lawn mowing beer!
What a great lawnmower beer. The tangerine flavor just pops with the hops adding depth to the sweetness of the tangerines. Would be great for those all day sessions down the shore.
Nice twist on a traditional radler.
The first “lager” forward Radler that I’ve experienced. It was nice to recognize that it was a beer, and not overly fruity like a shandy tends to be.
Just not a fan of radlers
Does not taste like any German radler for which one would expect or hope. Not very “tangeriney” either. No heart or soul in this.
Not the best Radler I've had, but it was still drinkable. Has a tangerine taste for sure.
A fun, crushable brew- the sweetness carries from start to finish and the tangerine goodness could not be ignored. A great summer beer!
Perfect Summer beer. Sweet, light and easy drinking on a hot day.
