3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...

Save your time and money. Hazy yellow little head, this is what Budweiser and orange would taste like if you mixed them.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
In the words of John McEnroe, "You cannot be serious!" What the shit is this? Yes, it’s drinkable, but so is Coca-Cola for that matter. Look, Hoppin’ this is refreshing in some ways, but this has nothing to do with beer or brewing in my opinion. Is this Mellow Yellow with alcohol added post production? Come on, You Cannot Be Serious!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours hazy straw color with white head. Smells like hi-c orange drink. Tastes like sour, old orange juice mixed with a pale lager. Not very good. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation.
