2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear pale amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is pretty much just lemonade with a little bit of a beerish malty background. Taste is that of a weak pale lager mixed with some carbonated lemonade, which I suppose is exactly what this is. Sweet but not as sweet as I thought it would be. Lacking in flavor compared to other Fentimans sodas.

bottle. Probably has more in common with carbonated lemonade than beer. Sweet and lightly lemony.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours pale yellow (almost golden) with a small and fast dissapearing white head. Sweet aroma with notes of pear and powdersugar. Taste is sweet like a Swedish cider at first. Aftertaste is malty and a bit spicy with notes of citrus and ginger. Quite thin (of course) and also a bit too carbonated. Overall: light, refreshing and nice! My first shandy, but hopefully not the last one. resin,

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
275ml bottle poured into a shaker. Ohhh, and it’s a twist-off! Pours a slightly hazy gold with minimal head. Very faint aroma. Some pine-sol and metal. Taste is super sweet. Lemonade mixed with sprite. Light bodied with a sticky texture. No carbonation and a long sweet finish. Overall, I kinda like the taste. If it had some alcohol in it I would be down with it. I could definitely use this as a mixer with some vodka though.

First saw an expired bottle at Liebmans (fling for almost $5, Pass! .. but then while at world market, $2 and not expired... . Pours a deep amber .. pretty much no foam .. . lots of floaties when i purchased the bottle, when poured carefully a few days later it was ok .. . light honey, sweet malt, and sweet lemon .. . is a very refreshing blend, i’d might buy again in a sixer if it was a touch cheaper and it didn’t have all that sediment .. . . .
do i look like a reasonable man or a peppermint nightmare?

Taste isn’t bad...fake lemon and honey, but it’s 0.5% alcohol so what do I care.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2/6/12. 275mL bottle (wtf?). Thanks to PorterPounder for the tip that this was in town. Slightly hazed light copper pour with a small off-white head that fades and is gone. Faint aroma of lemon cleaner, sweetness, light beer, and a bit of metal. However, I really did the taste of this. Sweet lemon and citrus with just a touch of bitter maltiness. It’s like Sprite mixed with just a touch of beer. Not bad... now only if it had some alcohol.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Pours clear amber with a very shortlasting small head.
Tastes like Pommac with a hint of maltyness. Very sodalike but more beery than Berliner Kindl’s Berliner weissen
