COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The release of our Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale is around mid June. Born from European tradition, our Shandy is a refreshing combination of lemon and light malt flavors. Unlike traditional shandys, Turbo Shandy, revs it up a couple of notches with a high test, full flavored approach as only Hoppin’ Frog can do.

Bottle shared by aobecksy and tiberious at RBWG. Thanks ’rents! As others have noted below, this was more lemonade than beer. Which was fine at the time, but I did expect a little more from this brewery. Quite sweet, countrytime lemonade with hardly any lager/biscuit malt balance that it needs. Like Leighton said, this is a tough style to pull off.

Definite lemonade. Light on the beer flavor. Slight creosote on the nose, but refreshing.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Pours clear yellow with a small, white foam head. Sugary lemon nose. Big sweet flavor, light breads malts, sugary lemon candies. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, lightly sticky finish, lingering sweet lemon. Meh, tough style to pull off.

jkwood04 (3877) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 25, 2012
22oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours golden with a small head. Aroma of lemonade, pale malts, light hops, and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same, with a lot of lemonade. Average to light texture. A beer that is not for me.

Fantastic fruit beer. Better than leinenkugels. Surprised me with apricot. Bought in Dec and I expect that makes a difference since its made in june. Citrus. Perfect stereotypical girl beer. Rated high for best in its class.

BMMillsy (1325) - Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours light golden with almost no head. Smells like lemon ginger ale. Taste is just like the smell: zesty lemon ginger ale. A bit of apricot. Effervescent and refreshing. Good beer for the style, and would be great on a boat on the lake in a hot summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 2. Post Fest tasting in Jan & Charlottes Room. Clear gold beer, residual white head. Palate is light and dry and crisp. Refreshing lager and lemon. The lemon is quite sharp. Crisp finish. Imperial Shandy?! Refreshing!

Aroma is lemonade, citrus and lemon-lime cola. The flavor is lemon-lime, lemonade, citrus, malts and a tart finish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemonade, limoncello, caramel and sherbet. A similar limoncello flavour again with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish and just a little bitter. OK.
