1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 Bottle consumed at the House of Olson in Prior Lake. Light in color with a golden haze. Aroma filled with lemon elements and some grassy/earthy characteristics. Taste has the same lemon qualities with very little alcohol presence. Simple and thin. Honestly nothing noteworthy but a reasonable option if you?re grilling out and are in desperate need of a shandy.

pours a hazy straw yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is grass and lemon. Taste has definite lemonade presence. Strange to have a beer with citrus flavor, but no hop presence. I can see how this would be refreshing on a hot summer day. Not very interesting though. ok.

Very good beer when itís hot in the summer. Doesnít pretend to be something is not. Beer and lemonade. Doesnít get much more summer than that.

APPEARANCE - looks like a summer bee should. Wheat beer characteristics. White head is pretty typical.
NOSE - lemon, then more lemon, then some (I want to say beer, but itís) more lemon.
FLAVOR - lemony to start. Wheat at rhe end.
NOTES - this defines summer shandy for me. Perfect balance.

Pours a cloudy,hazy, lemonade color. Minimal head, no lacing really. I like unfiltered beers, a lot, so this is good.
Smells really good. Smells crazy like lemon. Maybe some wheat smell. Eh...
Tastes not so great. I would hardly call it a beer. Itís lemony, but not beery. It just tastes like flat Minute Maid lemonade, I guess. Itís hard to describe. But not so great.
Iíd like to say itís drinkable, but despite the fact that itís so carbonated, it tastes flat. Alka-Seltzer, Iím just not digging it.
Overall, itís fair. I wouldnít turn it down if offered, and especially not on a hot summer day. But I would much rather have some Country Time lemonade. This is a bit of a disappointment. The rating I have given this is way to high. It does have good characteristics, but the flavor is just nott enough to make it worthy of a second try.

Great summer beer. Very smooth. My only complaint is that it is very fruity. I personally enjoy this beer on hot summer days

I DONT LIKE FRUIT BEERS BUTT THIS LINEINECKEUGELESíS IS TASTE GOOD. NOT TO FRUIT BUT JUST A SMOOTH APPLE FLAVER LIKE CEDDAR. OSKAR BLUE THE CANNED GUY DOES KINDA OF THE SAME THING. WHAT ITS MAKE RAFTING OR POOLTIME OR SHOOTING RANGE EASY AS . I DONT LIKE FRUIT BEERS AND I SOMETIME CHANGE IT UP FROM MY FAVERITE BEERS (PLINY) ITS (THE ABSOLUT BEST BEERS)! SO SUMMER SHANDY IS NOT BAD. NOTHING WRONG WITH A FRUIT BEER IF ITS NOT TO BAD.

On tap at Kegs for K9s. Back to with Curious Taveler, this one wins. Aroma is light lemon, medium body, and good small-bubble. Taste is nice easy drinking lemon.
