2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
If you dumped orange juice into a beer that's pretty much what this is like in a appearance and aroma. Taste is crisp and citrusy (no surprise) although tastes more like orange peel, slightly bitter. Finishes fairly clean, slight aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of orange juice, lemons, citrus and wheat malt. Hazy light orange hue with an average white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet, medium tart and lightly bitter. Palate is light bodied and watery with average carbonation. Overall I really liked the flavor and it’s quite drinkable on a hot day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells citric and orange; rather artificial. Tastes like orange slice candy in liquid form. Good carbonation. Certainly not your typical beer, but relatively refreshing. More fitting on a hot summer day than the icy weather outside now as I’m writing this.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer has a real soapy feel in terms of taste and feel. Their is a little flavor that mellows out to bland liquid. Orange is present but feels more secondary

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Milky orange pour with a 1 finger, creamy eggshell head that has great retention. Lots of orange and a little doughy yeast in the aroma, not much else, like somebody poured Orange Slice into a few yeast packets. Flavor is pretty much the same, the orange comes off as a little more natural in the finish. Light body, with a fairly full, sort of starch in milk chalky feel and fairly light carbonation. Could do with a little more carbonation, as most bottled Shandies could. Plain and mostly inoffensive overall, but not very good.

Color is murky orange. Taste and smell are a little bit like orange soap. Not drinkable but makes good beer bread.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy murky yellow orange pour. Nice little orange citrus nose, but the taste is muted and flat. Not offensive, but quite dull.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The most bland of their shanties that I have tried. Cloudy amber color and low ABV are only attributes worth discussing.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Draft.
A- Oranges, citrus.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Oranges, citrus, average sweetness, subtle sourness.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish.
O- I will get a lot of crap for this, but this beer is great. I love the smooth refreshing taste, and it’s above and beyond a normal lemon shandy. This is a heck of a summer beer.
