3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a hazy golden amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some excellent retention and thick lacing. Aroma of lemon Sourheads, a hint of golden grain malt and a touch of white bread. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of white bread dough, lemon extract and a hint of tart mango. Finish is semi-dry with a white bread and mild lemon after taste. A touch more body than your typical German Radler, especially with the extra malt presence.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is lemon; nice and pungent, without any candied overtone. Pours a relatively unremarkable flat brown-gold with very little head. On the tongue, it’s lemon, wheat, and a nice pithy bitterness; it’s more impressive as to what it’s not. It’s not candied, it’s not saccharine, it’s not gross. It’s refreshing and tasty. It won’t solve the world’s problems, but it’s a good shandy.

Bottle sampled at a beer share -- This reminds me so very much of what I remember Mikes Hard Lemonade tasting like.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Nice and refreshing. Strong lemonade flavors and aroma, but the beer part was still present. Decent balance between sweet and acidic. Great lawnmower beer.
TECHNICAL: Drank 4/21/2013. Bottle. Poured a muddy, dark yellow to medium orange with an average to large, fairly white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had, maybe, some light pale malts; very light doughy yeast; but MOSTLY lemonade and lemon rind. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and heavily acidic. There was lemonade, lemon, lemon peel, yeast and maybe a little pale malt. The light to medium body was a little watery and then dry with very fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of Dec 2014. Milky pale yellow pour with a fizzy white head that becomes a ring. Lemon pepper, citrus, grass, but little wheat on the nose. Reminds me of a Seltzer water. Light body. Lots of lemon and citrus in the taste with a touch of malts. Crisp finish. Not my thing.
