ahhh... I missed that they use different beers. One is stout+pale ale and the other is stout+lager.

got it.

Either way, they should be separated in the glass if poured properly.

Lemon soda and a light pilsner = Radler
Cola and beer = Diesel

A too bitter with a too sweet = I saved both of them! Yahoo!

I have heard what I suspect might be something of an urban legend--that both of those drinks are popular among German teenagers.

Is that really true? Beer and lemonade I can imagine being palatable. Beer and coca-cola just sounds too nasty to be true.

Yes, it is true. It's not an urban legend. Radlers have been around for decades!

It's also not "lemonade", but lemon soda...you know, like Sprite.

The Germans also have a drink called a "Geistmass" and sometimes "Geisermass". "Geist" means "ghost" and a "mass" is a liter mug (the glass ones).

It is half beer and half cola. To which 1 shot of whiskey is added. Man, I've killed many of those when I was younger (read: STUPID!!).

Wow, I didn't expect mixing beers is such a hot topic. From now on I won't clean my beer dispenser, just pull from one keg and plug to another to use, maybe one day I can find a perfect mix

Do you clean yours between use?
