Another fine beer from the Boulevard brewing company, lunar ale gets a general rating from me of "pretty good." It's a tasty beer that I would certainly buy again, a nice staple beer from a good brewery.
The color is medium brown and partly cloudy. It makes a decent head, but the head dissipates quickly.
The aroma is pleasant, but not overpowering or especially strong.
Hints of wheat maltyness are present but not real strong. There's also tinge of spicyness and a hint of citrus. It's a tasty beer, with complex flavors that come thru in a rather subtle manner. I thought the carbonation level was fine, and appropriate for the style of beer.
The drinkability factor is quite high, and this would be a good afternoon barbecue brew.
While I would not say that Lunar Ale is especially outstanding in any way, it's still pretty darn good beer. I think I'll have another.

3.33/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Deep mahogany, before a strong light, there are ruby highlights and crystal clarity. The head is small, off-white and retains moderately well. Thin, glass-coating lace adorns the glass walls.
Aroma: Strong, fresh baked bread aroma dominates the aroma. Dark caramel notes are also present., as well as a subtle cocoa note.
Taste: Wheat malt is fairly strong at the open, I was hopeful of finding fruity esters, particularly banana, but these seem to be absent. Pleasant dark bread notes carry the taste from start to finish, although there is little else. There is a faint blush of herbal hops at the close.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, rather pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and drinkable, not outstanding, but not bad, either.
Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
