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!

Poured from can to glass. Straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated. Aroma is lemon, straw, sulphur, resin. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a tart following and clean finish. Overall this is an odd, but refreshing brew.

Straight from the can at the beach. Mild lemon aromas. Lemonade with mild beer mouthfeel. Not unpleasant, but not something I need to have again either. Better than a hard lemonade as it is not cloyingly sweet.

Can. Clear gold with little head. Aroma and taste are pretty much lemonade. Not much else going on. Thin smooth mouthfeel. Similar but not as sweet as the Leinenkugel.

From 16oz can. Poured bold yellow. Aroma had lemon features. Taste had bold lemon features - no too sweet, not too tart. Nut I'm afraid the shandy style is just not in my wheelhouse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours straw with a white head. Aroma is lemonhead candy. Tastes sort of like a cheap lager with a lemonhead dissolved in it, which is to say, better than I expected. Not great, but not completely undrinkable.

Pour is a clear pale urine with lots of tight white head. Nose is heavy lemonade and hints of booze. Smells more like a lemon wine cooler. Taste is not as strong lemon but very sweet and not a big sugary. Boozy like a wine cooler. Still a decent bit of lemonade. Light body, well carbonated, not something I would want to drink.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Shame on you all. Made with half Narragansett beer. Pours orange with a foamy white head, Smells like garbage, ever took a fieldtrip to the landfill kids? Sickeningly sweet taste from the lager alone and just all cheap beer on the finish. One of the worst brews I ever tasted. Brewed in NY so iím not drinking local if I ever choose to have this sewage again.

Can. Lots of lemon and light pine with a touch of alcohol. Lightly sweet. Yellow color. Ok.

Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a finger of white foam. Nose is pure lemon oil with a hint of grain underneath. The palate follows but has more balance than the nose. Kind of watery, some definite lemon is backed by some clean lager flavors but nothing to exciting. Easy to drink just a bit underwhelming. Actually wouldnít mind a bit more lemon kick in the palate.

16 oz can into a snifter. Pours a clear dark yellow with a huge billowing white soapy head that disappears quickly. Nose is lemon, soap, adjuncts, and some simple syrup. Taste is lemon syrup, adjunct graininess, and a certain soapiness. Finishes clean and a little tart. Tasty and very refreshing. Heads above the BMC flavored lagers. This is really best enjoyed ice cold though.
