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!

Pint can. Had this one this one after sitting on the hot beach for a few hours. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized head. Citrus/lemons. I thought this was a good choice to quench my beach thirst - time and place definitely raised my rating ...

PorterPounder (5707) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 16 oz Nathanís Hot Dogís looking tall boy can. Slightly hazy medium golden pour, tight white bubbly head. Aroma has some artificial lemon candy-like aroma. Flavor is pretty much all lemon, slightly natural, a bit of tartness. Hint of metal in the back end. Mouthfeel is crisp. Refreshing to say the least.

thornecb (4539) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2014
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.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Fresh, non-beer lemonade aroma. Bright tallboy, very pale, clear brew without much head. Cereal and light lemon up front, moderately sweet, fairly tart. Medium-light body. OK, not great. New Leaf Market.

jkwood04 (4173) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Big can in a teku. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma a nice blend of lemonade and light beer. Flavor the same. Average texture. A solid shandy.

ben4321 (4094) - 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.

AirForceHops (3522) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 8, 2014
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.
