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.

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.

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.

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

12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 5/23/2016. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger foamy and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lightly tart lemon, lime, ginger, wheat, and cracker; with light pepper, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of lemon/ginger, pale malt, and light earthy hop/yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lightly tart lemon, lime, ginger, wheat, and cracker; with light pepper, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and ginger spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, ginger, wheat, cracker, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice robustness and balance of lemon/ginger, pale malt, and light earthy hop/yeast flavors; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good dryness on the finish. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.1%. Overall this is a very good radler. All around good robustness and balance of lemon/ginger, pale malt, and light earthy hop/yeast flavors; and very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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.

A: Pours a hazy pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and a hint of lemon + straw yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy foamy bright white head that quickly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus lemon (more lemonade than just lemon) and light aromas of spicy fresh ginger.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of grainy malts with a moderate flavor of lemon citrus/lemonade with a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of slightly spicy fresh ginger. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades away almost instantly.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing. Pairs really well with spicy Indian food but I could see it matching well with many different Asian dishes. Enjoyable and very nice on a warm summer evening.

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.
