Notes / Commercial Description:
Ginger Lemon Radler is a zesty, refreshing take on the tradition of mixing beer with soda or lemonade to create a light, thirst-quenching beverage ideal for warm weather. Radler (literally “cyclist,”) takes its name from active German sportsmen of a hundred years ago, but our version tastes just as good even if you do nothing more strenuous than lifting it to your lips.

Ginger Lemon Radler pours a hazy yellow color, with a very small head. Big ginger aroma. Flavor is also full of ginger, with a good hint of lemon near the end. Good body and feel, and very refreshing. Overall, very tasty if you like ginger.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Canning date engraved on bottom of can is 'L041418 16:36'.
Cloudy, straw colored body. Slight white fizzy head quickly disappears but leaves a thin bubble fed ring. Leaves behind a few tiny spots of lacing.
Aroma of lemon, ginger, and malt.
Sweet/tart taste of lemon, with ginger. I get a sense of salt also.
Light, thin mouth feel. Good carbonation.
The can bears the logo of 'BRIGHT CITRUS ZING', and this is a good summary of the experience with this beer. Has quite a bit of dryness at the end, which stops this beer from being totally refreshing.

It is a hazy yellow color. What head is present in the pour disappears quickly.
Strong ginger aroma, with lemon taking the backseat.
Tart lemon comes through more in the taste, but there is still an awful lot of ginger.
Not as refreshing as I thought it would be.

Pours a foggy, frosty dark yellow with a finger of white fizz that fizzles away rather quick leaving a still looking beverage in the glass. Aroma is ginger right up front, with a zesty twist of sour lemon. Flavor profile is more so lemons with a ginger in the back. Both are very apparent, but contrast each other well forming a balanced beer despite having a stark contrast. Mouth feel is crisp and refreshing, with a medium-thin thickness. Overall, a refreshing beer - for those who enjoy ginger. The "ginger" addition on the label is no joke. It's an incredible summer sipper though.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

I have been meaning to try this one for a while & when I found it in CANs, I just knew that I needed to add it to The CANQuest (tm)!

From the CAN: "Kansas City * Since 1989"; "Sunshine season class for a uniquely refreshing brew with added zing. Ginger Lemon Radler is our take on the classic German 'cyclist' - bright and easy-drinking, with tangy citrus and a touch of ginger spice."

I did a little in-CAN agitation before performing the Crack!, but it did not seem to have had much effect. An inverted Glug also failed to generate much more than a light haze. However, I did get just under two fingers of fizzy, foamy, bone-white head with modest retention. Color was a lightly-hazy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose was pretty redolent with ginger, but the lemon was also coming through nicely. I was reminded of tea or cough drops, but neither in a negative way. It just smelled appropriate for its name. Mouthfeel was kind of thin, watery and unobtrusive. The taste was heavily weighted towards the ginger, which was appropriate, since it got top billing. The lemon flavor added a tart dimension that was perhaps unnecessary, but still enjoyable. Finish was dry, as any beer with spice should be, but I am not sure that it was entirely refreshing. I would want this less after a bicycle ride & more with sushi or Chinese food, like at Tony Wang's.

Ginger-Lemon Radler is an unfiltered brew, you can not see though the glass. There is some spotty lacing to this brew, it stick to the side of the glass.

This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. There is a lot going on in this brew, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. If you are a fan of lemon you have to give this brew a try.

Boulevard Brewing Co. "Ginger Lemon Radler"
12 fl. oz. can, "Best By 08/22/17" and sampled on 08/11/17
$2 @ Weis Market, Conshohocken, PA

Look: Very hazy yellow-gold body beneath a foamy bright white head that holds well but leaves little lacing behind.

Smell: Fresh ginger with a lemony and malty background.

Taste: Sweetish and malty with clear ginger and a soft tartness and hint of lemon flavor. It's not sweet like soda-pop as some can be. Nicely balanced with some grainy malt character. Moderately bitter, and a touch spicy with ginger in the mainly dry finish.

Feel: Medium-light in body and gently crisp.

Overall: Pleasant and refreshing.

Ginger-Lemon Radler | Boulevard Brewing Co. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick, with spotty lacing, and a hazed golden yellow body.

Smells like inviting ginger with the lemon zing I was expecting.

I taste a bright, crisp, and clean version of the smell with a mild sweetness; nothing too heavy.

Medium-light mouthfeel with fair carbonation.

Overall, I'll rate Ginger-Lemon Radler | Boulevard Brewing Co. with a 4.5. Look this up for a damn satisfying summertime quencher.
