2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy yellow with an off white head. Nose is orange, orange slices, and clean. Easy palate, watery, orange, sweet, summer beer.

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.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap--I liked the aroma, definitely orange and even though it’s a summer beer, the aroma fit well at Christmas. The appearance is orange with a small head and an overwhelming orange flavor, it was hard to taste any beer in the beer. Sicky sweet on the finish. Produce place.

Bottle. The aroma and appearance really wowed me. Smells strongly of orange zest, pours cloudy light orange with a thin white head that fades to a thin lace. Taste is a little disappointing though, it’s overcarbonated and bitter. Tastes like orange-flavoured champagne maybe, whether you like that or not. I like it okay, would drink again. Not sure if would buy again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid for the style; a cloudy golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of orange zest and some dough. Tastes like it smells, only less robust, with an average mouthfeel. Okay.
