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. (348 characters)

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. (1,183 characters)

Was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The lemon and the ginger flavors complement one another rather well. Occasionally I felt the lemon came off a tad too strong but I'm not sure if a stronger ginger element would be any better. The carbonation was moderately high although this is the sort of beer that needs that extra bite. A higher level of carbonation might even improve it.

There was a normal amount of white foamy head. I'd say roughly 3/4inch to an inch. The color was very similar to the boulevard wheat. Possibly a bit murkier. The smell wasn't particularly strong but the lemon seemed to be the primary scent.

Overall this is a great beer. It would pair well with seafood, salad or grilled chicken. I would definitely purchase this beer again.

Poured from bottle to mug. (788 characters)

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. (406 characters)

slightly cloudy and yellow, head started pretty good but didn't last, not much lace.

Aroma big whamo of ginger, much like a couple really tasty ginger beers I've had over the years. Lemon pretty obvious too. Not a whole lot else going. Flavor follows but with a bit more lemon than ginger, opposite the aroma.

Body is light and carbonation is pretty high. Overall this ain't bad but ain't the best ginger beer I've had either. As with any good ginger beer, this would go well with sushi. (491 characters)

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. (615 characters)
