3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A serious lemonade taste. I believe this is the best shandy that I have ever had.
A cloudy yellow color with a thick, foamy white head.

Nothing more than lemonade with beer allegedly combined. It’s easy to detect the lemon flavor but not much more.

On tap. Pours yellow with a tiny white head. Kind of a crappy lager aroma. It basically tastes like lemon flavored crappy beer. Didn’t like it at all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass.
Appearance: pours a 2"+ white pillowy head that drops at a moderate rate leaving faint lacing. Very cloudy yellow color (pretty much like lemonade).
Aroma: strong lemonade aroma with a bready malt backbone.
Mouthfeel: very light and watery with a dry finish.
Flavor: lemon, light barley sweetness maybe a hint of hops in the finish.
Overall: decent for what it is. I would think that Fresca or Mt. Dew fans would enjoy this beer.

Murky yellow, no head.
Salty, lemonade concentrate, no malt flavor, imagine it drinks like a wine-cooler. Not beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow color. Nice white head. Aroma is very lemony. It looks like lemonade. Taste is definite lemon flavor, with a hint of wheat and beer accents. Good amount of carbonation, light body. Overall this is an excellent summer brew. If you are not into a crisp lemonade tinged beers then it might not be for you. I liked it.

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 it’s hot in the summer. Doesn’t pretend to be something is not. Beer and lemonade. Doesn’t get much more summer than that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 it’s) more lemon.
FLAVOR - lemony to start. Wheat at rhe end.
NOTES - this defines summer shandy for me. Perfect balance.
