3.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I love this beer on a sunny afternoon, a boat ride, a game of golf or a summer bonfire. Leinenkugel has set the bar high for summertime beers. I tried to mix Coors Light and lemonade because I was craving a Summer Shandy on a sunny afternoon, needless to say but it was not the same.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottle, hazy through the bottle. Sweet lemony aroma. More hard lemonade than beer. Okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Als je eraan ruikt is er een lichte citroengeur waar te nemen. De kleur is troebel geel als je hem uitschenkt, een beetje te vergelijken met een witbier; De smaak trekt wat op een blond abdijbier waar wat citroen is in uitgeperst. Niet enorm speciaal, maar wel lekker als het wat warm is. Gedronken in bottles (beschikbaar in fles)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can on Southwest. Taste is very faint lemon, musky cracker malt, and stale bread. Light body and medium carbonation. Faint aroma of musky grains. Not much to it other than carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from the mixed pack. Dirty blonde pour with a white head... Strong lemon aroma with light florals. Taste is dominated by the lemon, light florals and grass. Definitely has a spritzer feel. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong sweet lemon drop aroma with an accompanying lemon drop taste. Mouthfeel is good, no alcohol warning, though. The lemon aroma is so strong its almost too strong to detect anything else, but it could be the way it’s served(lemon on the glass).
This would be a very good summertime regressing session beer.
It’s like drinking lemonade.
