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!

Six pack of sixteen-ounce cans. Figured I try a new Shandy as June soon approaching and I like íGansett as far as cheap beers go. Poured with large, frothy head and yellowish color. Definitely a fruity aroma (letís say...lemon). What I like about this is the overpowering lemon taste over the beer. What I donít like is the lack of carbonation. Too bad they couldnít have found that balance. Also, bit of a steep price for a cheap beer. Can probably buy higher quality shandys for the same or less. As one review stated, would be nicer to have a good lemonade and a good beer. Yet, I wonít mind drinking down the other five cans...itís not that, that bad.

This started out promising enough. Iíd had some tallboy cans from the brewery that were better than I expected, plus this beer comes in a cool-lookiní can and a novel concept. I wondered what a lager base would do when paired with the lemon flavor - turns out nothing but very very bad things. Unpleasant appearance, grainy, unbalanced texture, bad flavors made worse by combining them. This tastes like a cheap choke-it-down pale lager with some lemon Pez dropped in the bottom. One of the worst things Iíve drank all year.

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.

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.

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.
