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.

Poured from a bottle. This smells and tastes like carbonated lemonade. I give it credit for hiding the alcohol well, but it would be way cheaper to make an electric lemonade, which would be about the same. Not a good beer at all.

DocLock (9998) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bomber from Capone’s and Craft Ale House. Pours turbid, post-multi vitamin urine yellow with minimal head. Nose is lemony citrus, malt, some earthy notes. Tastes very citric, lemony and orangy, with mild malt notes and a fruity finish.

22oz bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a small sized head. Aromas and tastes of limes and lemons. Sweet with a light tart finish. Different.

Very citrusy and weird. I don’t really know this style that well but this tastes like a weird limeade to me.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Pours light cloudy lemon with a nice white on top. The aroma is sweet and very citrusy fruity juicy. The flavor is a medium syrupy sweet with tons of lemon and orange citrus flavors. Definitely more on the lemon than beer side of a shandy, but pleasant on a hot sunny day down the shore.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle: pours a yellow with a little bit of orange color. It has a sweet aroma of lemons. The flavors are much in line with the aroma... Lemons, lemonade, lemony. It lingers well after you finish... Not my favorite, but it falls in line with a shandy.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
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.

unclemike (2895) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
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.

Gription79 (2829) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2011
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.

thewolf (12080) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2011
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.
