3.58/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

I will hand it to Boulevard in the sense that they have made a beer that has a great amount of authentic ginger aroma & taste. That makes it all the more surprising how artifical & cloying the lemon flavor presents itself. There are very few discernible beer notes, but it's ultimately a decent, inoffensive "thirst quencher" that I'll give a pass to purely because i like ginger.

Pours a pineapple-yellow color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aromas and flavors of ginger and lemon zest, plus some grapefruit-soda style sweetness which is equally refreshing. A very refreshing and enjoyable radler.

Lemon forward. I wish the ginger notes were a bit more prominent. But definitely a very good beer!

Hazy yellow in body with no head. Aroma of ginger, lemon, and cleaner. Tastes of ginger, lemon zest, Apple, and yellow Gatorade. Light bodied with high carbonation. Despite lacking in looks and aroma, it's refreshing and flavorful.

Poured a yellow-golden color with a 3 F head.
Good aroma: mostly ginger, some malt, and sweet.
Moderately carbonated.
The taste is similar to ginger ale- not much different.
There is also a certain sweetness to the taste which some craft beer drinkers may not appreciate. The ginger was overwhelming to me- the beer tasted more like ginger ale and not beer.

Overall, it's actually a well brewed beer. Lightly carbonated, sweet, heavily ginger.
It's just not my style.

This is a very good tasting beverage. Lots of lemon with little zings of ginger here and there. Smells delicious too, like sweet lemonade. It reminds me of a shandy, but with even more juicy lemonade flavor. It's hard to think of this as a beer, reminds me more of a mixed drink, but boy it sure does taste good.

Love this beer but it's hard to come by in area, only two stores sell it, so when you buy it you have to stock up.

It's a very refreshing beer. I hope Boulevard continues to make it.
