COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi Neighbor! Great-Grandfather DeLucia made his first frozen lemonade back in Italy in 1840. During the winter he carried snow into nearby caves and insulated it with straw. When summer arrived, he mixed the snow with fresh, local lemon juice and sugar, making a refreshing drink. His grandson, Angelo, introduced this icy treat to Rhode Island in 1948, and today there are over 30 Delís stands across America. íGansett is proud to present this delicious Shandy with the perfect balance of Narragansett Lager and lemon flavor. Itís refreshingly different!

Pours out pale yellow with a huge white head. Also, great can design. Aroma is lemonade and cheap beer, so more or less what this is. Flavor is lemon and cheap beer again. The lemon is really quite nice in this, but the beer just drags it down. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. Itís fine, but Iíd really prefer to have a glass of good lemonade and a glass of good beer side by side.

Patrickctenchi (4517) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2015
Can: Clear, yellow-gold with a small white head. Lemonade aroma. Taste is lemon....grains. Actually has a touch of beer flavour in there.... Not ridiculously sweet like many shandyís... Not great, but not horrible, either.

Pours a yellowish light amber from a can. Aroma is a bready lemon, flavor is a tart lemon with a slightly sweet sourdough aftertaste. Not too bad.

shrubber85 (8526) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2015
Can. Lemon juice and barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Tart lemon juice, barley malt, and hay flavor. A lemon flavored beer - not a typical sweet shandy.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Tallboy can from Samís Quik Shop. Looking forward to this one as I fondly remember Delís from my college days in Rhode Island. Go Friars! Slightly hazy golden, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of bright, tart lemon, pale malt. The taste is sweet lemonade with a bit of tartness. Pale malt with a bit of graininess. Thin, medium bodied.

Can at Jamesí house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Lemonade on the nose, a bit sweet, and a touch Pledge like. Medium bodied, light sweet lemonade, a touch of graininess. Soft lemon and tangy. Tasty stuff, light easy drinking summer beer.

16 oz. can. Mostly clear yellow color, lasting bubbly head. Aroma is straight lemonade from Delís Lemonade stand. Native New Englanders have a special place in their heart for a Delís lemonade in summertime.

Honestly for a radler, its pretty good. Very light grain notes can be found under the lemonade flavor. Pretty sugary, with tart lemon finish. It pretty much is exactly what I expected, a little better actually. Much more drinkable then some of the other ď ShandyísĒ on the market right now.

ben4321 (4449) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Location: Draft at UCB, 8/30/14

Aroma: Sweet lemonade nose, some tart lemony notes, sugar, and a little cereal malt
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a small head and fairly mild lacing
Flavor: The taste is sweet, lots of lemon and sugar, with some balancing tart notes as well
Palate: The body is light, it is easy drinking, crisp, clean, and refreshing on the mouth
Overall Impression: Iím not a huge Shandy fan, but as far as they go, this one was just fine, but thereís isnít much differentiating this one as excellent or anything. You could certainly do worse if you are looking for something refreshing. Ultimately though, it is too sweet, and too one-dimensional.

Pours a clear yellow with a lot of stark white, rapidly dissipating head. Strong citrus nose full of lemon zest. Some malt in the flavor, but generally the lemon flavor stands out the most. Iím not the biggest fan of the style, but itís an alright shandy for what it gives you.
