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.

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)

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.

Nephilium (1348) - Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2011
This starts with the aroma of lemonade. It pours a slightly hazy light yellow with no head. This is a shandy, tasting of lemon soda. If that’s the flavor you like, you may enjoy this beverage, but if I’ll stick to a good sour lambic in the summer if I want a tart beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Pours a hazy yellow/golden color with a quickly diminishing head. No lacing at all to speak of. Smells of sweet citrus lemons, grass, spritzy on the nose, smells like a lemon jolly rancher. Very light and citrusy. Slight grainy quality goes well with sweet lemon candy, some grass, sugars, with the finish being very short and sweet. Overall, this barely represents beer and defintely a bit artificial.

Bottle; Pour is light golden, very modest white head in this tulip. Lemon peel and caramel malt on the nose. Lemon peel, caramel malts, soda pop. So it’s the best shandy I’ve had. I’ve only had two, like many people Im sure. Nice, really
