    Does anyone know if there is an off license that sells this stuff in Dublin. Or is it discontinued?

    I know they used to sell bottles here in Tesco and Dunnes. Heineken put a good few quid into marketing it in Ireland a couple of years ago. I last drank it last summer at a few bbqs, it's nice and refreshing on the rare sunny days we get. Just can't seem to find it anywhere!

    It was stocked in the main retailers last summer, so should be back soon enough.
    In the meantime, if you can't find it, Aldi do their own radler (Brassiere), which would be quite similar.

    Cheers for that. I actually noticed that the other day while I was in there. I Will pick a few up next time I'm there and give it a try :)

    Looking at the LIDL catalogue for next week and they have bottles of Austrian radler in specials section.

    obviously, you can just do like pubs on the continent and tip some lemonade into a pint glass and top it up with beer.
    I find sprite to be too bitter, 7up should be ok, but a cheapo white lemonade would be spot on too, if not actually better as its missing that lime element.

    and for drivers, say your out at a party (or wedding in the arse end of nowhere, so you need to drive afterwards to an affordable hotel elsewhere) or whatever, just make the home made radler with alcohol free lager instead.

    Same here , I've found pre-mixed radlers/shandies to be unbearably sweet. Better to make your own. Unless you're going to a festival or something like that.

    I agree, i like to use sprite zero or 7UP free to mix the beer, less sugar, and you can better control the taste.

    Probably works out a lot cheaper if having a BBQ at home and you're mixing from a 2L bottle

    They also do Perlenbacher Radler which is nicer, IMO.
