COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard 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.

Beautiful hazy yellow color. Two to three finger white head. Aroma is all about the ginger; the smell comes through so strong to me it reminds me of Vicks vapor rub. Taste is a good balance between the lemon and ginger. Feels great in the mouth; perfect carbonation. Overall I’m surprised by this beer in the most wonderful way. Fantastic.

Cloudy yellow brew with no head. Smells of lemon. Taste is exactly what the description said, Ginger ale with some lemon juice added. This doesn’t even taste like it was ever a beer and is just plain nasty. Got this in a sampler so I sure hope the others are better than this sink pour. After thinking about it a while this brew reminds me of the teenage trash can punch parties. So for a trip down memory lane and the outrageous trash can mixes we came up with this one does have a good point to it. Might take the other two and toss in some various liquors and really go down that lane.

Ginger beers are not my thing and this one does nothing to convince me otherwise. Not that radlers are great either. Had a taste of this at whole foods.

Pours hazy golden with a medium white head, good retention, fine lacing. Aromas of lemon candy, ginger, hay. Light body, crisp, velvety. Mildly sweet, medium tart, only a little bitterness in the finish. Very light and easy to drink.

EtTuCthulhu (1104) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2014
This beer pours a cloudy golden color with a large white head that fades quickly and with some dark, large-grain sediment floating throughout the liquid. The aroma has a lot of lemon and ginger, which is almost overwhelming. The taste is quite sweet and slightly sour with lemon being the predominant flavor, and the aftertaste has a little more ginger than the initial flavor despite the heavy amount of lemon. The palate fuses a thin texture, average carbonation, and a medium-light body. Overall, this is too damn sweet for me to want another.

shrubber85 (7848) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Ginger ale and lemon aroma. Sweet ginger/lemon, hay, and barley malt flavor. Very nice blending. A radler with beer taste - very nice.

Huhzubendah (2637) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bright yellow body, moderately hazy. Small white cap. Huge ginger aroma with lemon. Lemon drops and ginger candies. Light sweetness. Light bodied with a delicate, prickly carbonation. Quite flavorful and enjoyable. A great way to kick start a tasting session. Delicious.

nealblind (896) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Cloudy yellow pour. Aroma of lemonade/limes. Tastes like ginger with the rind on (planty/earthy). Mid fizzy. Decent, but nothing special.
