COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
That girly drink that men will secretly drink from time to time, ďjust to taste itĒ. This is a new offering from our Session line of beers. It is our version of an all malt based hard lemonade.

Pale golden, super fizzy. Small white head. Aroma is lemony with plenty of wheat notes. Flavor is pretty one-dimensional with straight up lemon. Finish and aftertaste are a little wheaty. Interesting but nothing special.ginger,

Pours a very hazy yellow, a vigorous pour produces a small head that goes away in a hurry.

The aroma is weird, itís lemony... but itís got odd human skin and medicinal notes... there must be some lemon extract that smells like this when itís in beer because Iíve smelled it before in similar lemon beers, itís not inviting in the least.

The flavor is sort of like lemon soda, itís pleasantly tart... even to the point of light sourness but itís way too sweet... what little maltiness there is in the beer serves as more an unpleasantry than a balancing factor.

I guess I shouldnít expect to like a lemonade beer, but I have this weird delusion that there is some sort of great hope for the style... a nice very light, lemony tart beer with a mild un-distracting sweetness could be beautiful if it was finessed just right. Shallow as it is, I love look of the can for this one, and somehow it tricked me into expecting what I always hope for from these beers, and never never get.

wlajwl (3931) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Aroma is lemonade, wheat/barley malts and grainy. The flavor is lemonade, fruit/berries, grainy malts, mild/medium sweetness and a tart finish.
