Not ironically, it looks just like its base beer their Wheat - hazy golden, very little white head. Looks good in one of my Boulevard pints though.

Smells more like a lemon soda than a beer.

Tastes much like a lemon soda too, with only a zip of ginger and wheaty base to remind you that it's still a beer.

Refreshing with strong carbonation - great in the summer.

It's ok - not great, fun to drink.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is rather hazy light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of ginger are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of ginger along with some hints of lemon citrus.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. With ginger in the smell and taste, this probably would make for a good pairing with some sushi.

Serving type: can

A nice summer Radler. Not the best I've had but very nice. I drank 5 or six out of my growler while working around the house and never got buzzed. So a nice refreshing beer with out a high alcohol content.

L: Pours cloudy straw under a quickly dissipating 2” white foam cap that leaves very little lace.
S: Has a really big ginger-lemon nose.
T: The flavors are primarily ginger and lemon with light malt and grains in the background.
F: Light bodfied and effervescent O: Suprisingly easy to drink – a good bicycle beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a hazy yellowish orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Not much of a head.

Smell: A crisp and zesty aroma with a scent of lemon and ginger. Upfront scent of lemon zest with some hints of lime and pineapple. Good scent of ginger spicing. Sweet hints of sugar. Pale malt with some hints of wheat and cracker. A solid ginger ale like aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a crisp and zesty Ginger ale taste with notes of lemon and ginger. Zesty notes of lemon along with some notes of lime and slight pineapple. Solid notes of ginger. Sweet taste of sugar. Pale malt with some wheat and cracker. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Crisp, prickly, and pretty smooth.

Overall: A very solid take on a Radler. Nice Ginger Ale flavor with balanced bitterness and sweetness.

From a 12 oz can.
Rather pronounced ginger and lemon, with more ginger than optimal for most people, I suspect.
Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

I'm ready for this beer to look like a soda, but the head actually shows a bit of substance rather than fizzing out. The color is a murky but bright pale gold. There's even a bit of spotting left behind on the glass.
Ginger doesn't bite too hard but adds plenty of character and not too much spiciness. It's all lemon underneath, though it seems there may be a kiss of grassy hops to even it out. As such, it is not even close to being too sweet, which is a good thing.
Crisp, bubbly, light and refreshing, it even feels a little like a soda with a bit more substance to it. As such, it really does the job, and it's going to be fantastic for hot weather.
