2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber thanks to 17thfloor. Pours a pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very lemony limey and citric, orange drink notes, a bit of a sharpness. Flavor is much the same, very juicy like a limeade, a touch candhyish. Finishes a bit sweet. Light to medium body and a crisp carbonation. Interesting beer, not sure what a shandy is doing at 7 percent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
20-05-12 650ml: De couleur jaune-blanche, trouble, légèere effervescence et aucune mousse. Ressemble plus a du jus qu’a une bière. Aromes de citron et de menthe fraiche, combiné en une odeur douteuse. Légèrement sucrée avec une forte note sure et acide. Corps plutot léger avec une texture mince et croustillante. forte carbonisation et finale un peu astringente pour une biere qui se veut raffraichissante.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from bittermestupid. Thanks again Greg. Pours light dishwater gold with no meaningful head. The aroma is citrus - going a bit towards 7-Up. Med body. Flavor is very 7-Up, but there’s some additional complexity. The citrus is more rind, and the malt kicks up the sweet. Tho weird for the U.S. it seems almost balanced - the citrus cuts the malt. But this is not hoppy citrus. Just citrus. More Radler than anything? Glad to have tried it.

Tastes like a standard radler but just amped up in the alcohol. A nice one for the summer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It looks nice enough. Golden and foggy. However it doesnt taste like much more than orange juice. There is a slight, SLIGHT hoppy aftertaste, but its nothing that a bottom shelf beer couldnt boast. Its a decent alternative to low quality/price shandi beers, but its nothing i would write home about.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has lemon candy...like a jolly rancher...and some wheaty notes. Tastes like lemon hard candy too...not acidic or tart...more sweet. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish has refreshing lemony citrus.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; light and inviting. Smells moot. Tastes good; definitely the best shandy I’ve ever had. Mouthfeel is good. too. Overall, a great shandy.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, and not much else. Similar to a sprite. Taste is much the same. I love Hoppin Frog but not this brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a weizen glass. Appearance is bright, almost neon yellow with a large white head of foam that dissipates almost immediately. Aroma is a nearly offputting citrus yeast blend that should have given me a heads up to go ahead and pour this down the drain. Taste is like a minute maid lemonade that got dumped into a bag of sugar and then into some hefeweizen. I did end up dumping about half the glass in the yard. It’s just too sweet. Almost sickly sweet.
