This classic thirst quencher is known in Bavarian beer gardens by its traditional Bavarian name “Russ”. It is now available ready-mixed in the exact right proportions of the best Paulaner Weißbier and natural lemonade made from pure lemon juice. Naturally cloudy, matt golden in colour with sweet and sour lemon and a hint of mandarin orange aroma. Just take refreshment, pleasure and lightness and you have the favourite summer drink. And for the rest of the year.
There is an eternal beergarden debate about the origins of the name “Russ”. Some say it goes back to the rebels of the Bavarian Räterepublik in 1918 with their endless meetings in the Mathäser Keller. The legend relates that so much Weissbier was drunk on these occasions that the host was afraid it could run out, so he spontaneously decided to “stretch” it with lemonade. Alternatively, it could relate to the communists, whose favourite drink it was, and who were called “Russ” by the people of Munich. However, there are no divided opinions about the unique fruit and yeast aroma of the Paulaner Weißbier-Radler combined with the citrus note of our best lemonade. The result is a dry but fruity refresher with 50% less alcohol than Weissbier alone as well as a unique and joyful experience for true beer enthusiasts.
