Bottle pour at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, lemon, and ginger aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour lemon and ginger flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of ginger bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and refreshing.

On draft, pours a bright straw yellow with a fluffy white head that sits on the top.

The nose is lemon zest, ginger root, candy, sugar lemonade and more citrus. The flavor is lemonade with some ginger. Very sweet, sugary. Not very acidic which is nice. No alcohol present, just spicy lemonade. Mouthfeel is a little thin.

Overall, not bad but too sweet for this style.

Served from the bottle in a Lagunitas mason jar.

After missing several opportunities to have this on tap during a recent bachelor party bar crawl in Chicago, I was pleased to find it included in the mixed 12-pack I bought. It pours a hazy gold topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose is a simple torrent of sweet lemon juice. The taste confirms this, though some mild ginger does seep through occasionally near the finish in short bursts. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, nearly sticky finish. Overall, a nice enough radler, but I would prefer the ginger to play a larger role, serving to balance the lemon a bit. Still, I could easily see enjoying a few krugs of this in some beer garden somewhere.

radlers arent as common as they should be. we are all so used to shandy (lemonade), but radler (lemon soda) is such a different experience. the added carbonation does a lot in hot weather, and this is a cool version, done with ginger. blonde and bubbly, just how it should be, with a nose tickling fizz coming from the glass, just like a sprite. the taste is great, really it is, fresh ginger and lemon peel in combination, ultimately refreshing, and even some hops in there as it finishes, so as not to get too sweet. its insanely flavorful for how dry it finishes, which i think is its best feature. i never really expect to like these types of beers, so when one like this comes around, so good and so cheap, its something to stock up on. the ginger adds an element to the style that makes it catchy for me, feels almost nonalcoholic and healthy. this tasting room series is a great idea, and this first beer i have had from it is truly delicious. im not embarrassed to like it, its lovely. in hot weather i will be reaching for this all summer. i liked their entwined ale too, but this is next level. definitely check it out if you think you done like radler, its a game changer.

Bright yellow body, moderately hazy. Small white cap. Huge ginger aroma with lemon. Lemon drops and ginger candies. Light sweetness. Light bodied with a delicate, prickly carbonation. Quite flavorful and enjoyable. A great way to kick start a tasting session. Delicious.

The Ginger Lemon Radler is not a beer style I prefer. The beer poured a unfiltered lemon with white head. The scent was dominated by lemon....very faint spice. The taste was like a fizzy lemon ade with a ginger ale finish. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was nice to try but I would not pursue trying this again.
