3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle, bottled in May, picked it up at the brewery. Pours slightly hazy bright golden amber color with a small foamy white head that reduces to nothing pretty quickly. A good amount of carbonation nucleation from the bottom of the glass as well. Huge aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, lime, and a bit of yeast breadiness. Interesting aromas to say the least, smells like fresca or something. Taste of huge lemon, lime, orange zest, and a bit of spiciness. Some tartness from the lemon and lime on the finish, with lingering citrus notes for a brief period of time. No bitterness noticed at all. Medium body and medium carbonation. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming after the finish. Very easy to drink for 7% ABV. Overall, this is actually pretty damn good. I don’t think I have actually had a shandy before, but this is tasty stuff!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at brady’s in Trevose. Light golden color. Aroma is lemon zest/orange. Taste is lemonade, very sweet, with a hint of a grainy malt backbone and tiny bitter finish. It’s light and refreshing, a really nice warm weather beer. Not amazing but kind of nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light golden with thin white head. Smells like a lemon/lime gatorade to me. Taste of lemon/lime and citrus. Not terribly sweet in the finish actually. Very refreshing, probably couldn’t drink too much of this though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured straw with no head. Nose was dominated by citrus/lemon lime. It also had a grain sweetness to the smell, as well as mead like honey notes. Taste was lemon with pilsner malts. Refreshing, effervescent, a really interesting great summer beer.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, bought @ HJ Hansen, Odense.
Pours clear yellow-golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, citrus and lime. Highish carbonation, light mouthfeel. Flavour is sharp, somewhat dry, sugary citrus. Rather dry in the finish and really not very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Bottle split with Pat and Vin. Pours a bright hazy orange body with some minor white lacing. Aroma is fresh capri-sun, juicy sweet lemonade. Mouthfeel is juicy and refreshing - essentially closer to juice rather than beer - with notes of Slimer Ecto Plasma Hi-C.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber. Pours a cloudy gray yellow orange with a very tiny quick fading white head. Aroma of a lemony orange fruit concentrate and orange gum. Taste of lemony orange fruit soda. Hard to believe this is classified as beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well....I had to make sure this wasn’t a lemonade, because thats all I tasted, It was good lemonade, but I do prefer some Beer flavor with my Lemons. That being said.
It poured a cloudy yellow with minimal head. low carbonation. lemon on, in and around the nose. little bitterness before some strong citrus notes of lemon and a slight graininess, some lingering sweetness that isn’t overwhelming but doesn’t work for me. It is still refreshing, but dammit, I want Beer. (7% abv.....who would have thunk)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a 1/4 inch white head that went away pretty quickly. No lacing whatsoever. The brew smells like lemon/limeade made with some kind of sugar substitute. It tastes the same way to me, mostly like some kind of lemonade with lime flavor and sugar substitute, maybe like a diet lemonade drink. It sure doesn’t taste like good lemonade. After a while it just gets harder and harder to finish this bottle. Mouthfeel/body is light, and it has decent carbonation. Overall, I just don’t care for this brew. I’ve had worse but I certainly won’t buy this again, especially for $6.99 a bomber.
