Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with thick white head. Aroma is lemon and some grass. Taste is kind of a fake artificial lemon. Just not my thing.

Originally rated on 6/8/08. The fourth beer out of the sampler case i bought. It poured a nice golden, slightly hazy body, a very small head, and it left no lacing on my glass. the aroma was very lemony, pleasant at first. As i drank it reminded me of a lemon scented bathroom cleaner,too much lemon odor to be natural. overall it was refreshing and a decent brew but i dont belive i will buy this again.

One of those beers you want to not like but you can’t really because it tastes like pure summer and when you really think about it that’s really what we all want. The feeling of summer without all the bad parts of summer... Like spending all day at a beach slowly crisping into a blistery painful sunburn. Sweating profusely as you stumble your way back to the bar for a 12th beer and maybe just a little shade to sooth your screaming cancer-ridden skin. This is like that but without all the bad stuff.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thick off white head. Very light brew as expected from a shandy. Not much lemon flavor and not much malt flavor either. That said it is a light refreshing beverage that suits a hot summer day.

Poured a murky golden hue with a bit of head that quickly dissipated. Smelled of artificial lemon. Taste was artificial as well but surprisingly not bad and refreshing. Overall this is decent and I always have to get a six pack every summer for nostalgia's sake.

I think all of Leinenkugels’ fruit beers are the same: fruity and delicious, but leave you wishing they had something more distinguishing than which fruit is in this particular beer you’re drinking at that moment.

Twelve ounce bottle at my sister’s house in Northern Kentucky (thanks, Sis!), tasted on July 26, 2015. Very hazy orange/yellow hue, fairly strong lemon nose, palate sensation is mostly carbonation with some lemon. Passable as hot weather refresher but there are better options.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/31/2015. Pours hazy bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemonade, lemon peel, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and light pepper. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of lemonade, pale malt, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemonade, lemon peel, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and light pepper. Minimal herbal/spicy bitterness and light fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemonade, lemon peel, wheat, cracker, light honey, light herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of lemonade, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice lemonade shandy style. All around good balance and robustness of lemonade, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Pretty good for a shandy. Not reminiscent of the typical "hard lemonades" that are disgustingly sweet and artificial. This is just a nice, sweet (but not too much so) refresher for the poolside on a hot day. Lemony citrus flavors throughout.
