$ 1.79 (Including tax)/12 oz can ($ 0.149/oz) at The Lager Mill, Frankenmuth, MI
Best by 6/24/16 at 42 degrees into a Lager Mill snifter
Aroma – lemon and some ginger
Head large (Maximum 4.3 cm, aggressive pour), white, fizzy/frothy, rapidly diminishing to a two mm ring and small partial layer
Lacing – none
Body light yellow, hazy and translucent
Flavor – refreshingly lemon, ginger not apparent; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate – light, watery, soft carbonation

It’s a radler and that speaks to its limitations. For a past date radler, however, it’s still quite refreshing and, dare I say it, good.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 4.

This beer pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a full head. There is a solid amount of ginger in the aroma, a little lemon, and a wheat like base beer scent. The flavor offers a stronger taste of lemon juice, ginger, with some spice. It mild and very pleasant. The mouthfeel is very light and fizzy. Overall this is light, refreshing, and well done.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Lagunitas mason glass.

L: Pours a semi-opaque medium golden color. Thin white head.. no significant lacing.

S: Ginger and lemon... heavy on the ginger.

T/F: Lemonade and ginger... not a lot of 'beer' elements here. Semi-sweet and tart... not a bad sweet/sour combo. The only thing that's not working for me is the ginger. Zesty carbonation... thin in body.

O: A passable radler, that honestly would be better without the ginger. Good for a hot summer's day or after doing some yard work.... maybe good for some chill time on the beach.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Unfiltered opaque deep yellow body color, with a touch of haze and fine carbonation. Creamy one and a half finger bright white head, which is fairly tight in appearance settles to a very thin puck and collar.

Aroma smells like straight up ginger beer. Large amounts of ginger and a refreshing snap and bite, not unlike a good quality ginger brew. But is this a radler or a ginger brew, or beer? I am confused.

Palate gets a bit more closer to radler concept. Lemon light tartness with a mild sweet tangy flavor. First sip is light malts and a good depth, followed by a nice lemon sweetness. Ginger isn't so big on the palate compared to the nose, but follows later after subsequent sips. Light bodied but with a touch of slight prickly carbonation, but decent almost chewy mouthfeel.

A solid radler, and even a touch of beer malt character depth to go with it too.
