2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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!

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy pale yellow with small white fizz. Smells very citrusy and has a strong lemonade character. Taste is citrus fruit and then lemonade. Light-bodied with a prickly texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale finishes with a little citrus bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2012 This has been on my wishlist for a while because, well, I had to know, Man. I had to know. And what I know now is this you can add Shandy to the list of beers that really don’t need to be "imperialized" or what ever you call it. It’s not really bad - nicely sweet, viscous palate, maybe a little medicinal and boozy. Actually a bit fatiguing, to tell you the truth. Perhaps if this was in a12 oz bottle instead of a 22 I would’ve enjoyed it a bit more...
