OK, quick poll: Did nobody get the joke I intended or was it, indeed, not a joke?
I was referring to the ambiguous term "lead" meaning not only "leading" but also the (sometimes toxic) chemical element lead, latin "plumbum".
I'm not a native english speaker, so maybe it's not funny at all, but "troll"?

It's not mandatory to drink it like that. :)
But I actually like it. In summer, during the day, it is much more refreshing to drink Alster (thats what we call Radler in the north of Germany, same thing).

In sweden you are not allowed to sell anything with more than 3% alc in normal stores. Instead they sell some kind of light beer with 2.5% of alcohol. I always wondered why they didn't sell Alster, which (believe me) is much better. :)

It's a young people thing :)
We had Radler/Alster for ages (it's beer with Sprite). It's quite refreshing and well established. But recently (5-7 years) these mix drinks spread like hell. It ain't only beer, you get vodka/rum/gin-drinks that are mixed to taste very sweet and contain less than 10% alcohol. These are called alco-pops and are sold to ypoung folks starting from age 16. They are very popular with these, for its sweet taste I guess.
Also: mixed beers are more common with women, who otherwise don't like the taste of beer that much.
