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!

16 oz tall boy can. Yellow, slighly opaque pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of lemons (duh) and faint corn. Thin mouthfeel. Clean, crisp brew that is very drinkable and unlike most shandies it has a faint lemon finish and not a sugar bomb in your mouth. Great representation of the style.

16oz Can. BYOB with a bean burrito. I drank this and it surprised me. Itís really not all that terrible and a decent shandy, in that it really tastes like lemonade mixed with beer, not some wretched thing where beer was brewed with some of the ingredients. Some of the hop flavor is incongruous with the Delís, but the zippy, tart lemon sweetness gives it balance and drinkability. I much prefer it to straight íGansett. Definitely needs to be cold and it definitely needs to be hot outside.

Bubbly, light, lemony...nice summer easy drinker. Tastes mostly like a crisp pils with just enough lemon taste. Better than I thought it might be.

Shandy is not my thing, but Iíve had a few that Iíve enjoyed, so after all the hype around this one, I figured Iíd give it a try. Thereís some sort of interplay between the hop and lemon that is conflicting. It produces an inpleasant bitterness that turns me off.

From a (really cool looking) can at the Syb Pig. Thanks Rob! Awesome looking pour with a light yellow hue and clear, bubbly body. The aroma was lemons, lemondrops, sweet wet fresh cut grass, and slight egg/sulphur. The taste was the same with a slight farty sulphur finish. Not sure where that came from but it cost the rating a few points. Kind of a turnoff for such a delicate beer. Heavy carb. Refreshing.

Tall boy from Newport RI. Pours hazy gold, white head. Aroma is fresh lemon, sugar, light malt. Taste is sweet with faint bitter finish, some pils hop.. Pretty good for a shandy.

Can. Pours a light tan color. Lemon hint not overly sweet. Best as it's cold. Good summer session

I havenít had a Delís in about 15 years but this beer took me back in time. Had a nice bitterness to it that balanced any sweetness from the flavoring added. Not the typical "Shandy" flavor...but thatís not a bad thing.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 Delís Frozen Lemonade is an iconic brand in Rhode Island, and this mix of Delís lemon extract and Narragansett Lager is a match made in heaven for any native Rhode Islander like me. Delís is the star here and in a very good way. Lots of good aroma of fresh lemon rind in the nose. More of the same on the palate with tart and sour lemon flavor paired with the good crisp pale malt back bone of Narragansett Lager. Delís Shandy finishes with more good tart, and sour lemon pith bitterness that lingers. This is the perfect summer brew. If you like shandy or raddlers? This is a good as it gets. You want the lemon/lemonade flavor to shine in a good shandy. This is by far the best shandy I have ever tasted. Narragansett knocked it out of the park with this one.

From the can marked 1284-14:39. The pour is pale yellow leading up to a white fizzy head. The color is pale yellow to copper with a short-lived white head. The aroma brings out a very fruit sensation, which I guess is to be expected from a Shandy. Also some limited biscuit malts. The body is light and refreshing. The taste really highlights the fruit character and comes across as a highly refreshing brew to drink on a hot summer day.
