12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at the Shoreline Restaurant bar in Gill’s Rock, WI., displaying a clear, golden hue, with a modest layer of white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was sweetness, ripe apple, some lemony tartness, and a brief medicinal hint. The taste was similar, quite sweet & appley, light bodied, and lively carbonated. Not bad as a palate refresher, but somewhat cloying to me.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Very, very sweet. I find this close to undrinkable. The lemon flavor is almost like a syrup. Must be why this was on sale at the brewery. Glad I only grabbed one for my mix 6 pack. Much more prefer a Summer Shandy from Leinie. This will not be making much profit for charity.

Poured from bottle. Creamy head in a yellow clear pour. Grain and earthy aroma. Fruity and sweet taste. Syrupy almost. Not great. Better in summer probably

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma of dried lemon and some grains. Taste is heavily sweet. Like minute-maid lemonade with an aftertaste of beer. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Great beer for summer. I’m drinking this while working outside so it’s good for the moment.

Pours like a champagne, with a large amount of crispy white head. Little to no aroma. Quite sweet palate, tasting of pear and granny smith apples. Refreshing on a hot summer day.

Bottle at the Casanova Beer Cave festival. Pale yellow pour. Lemon flavored, and almost cider-like. I enjoyed this one.

Draft at Old Fashioned. Filtered, yellowed tan. Big white head. Lemony spritzer aroma. Very spritzer-esque mouthfeel, effervescent and tangy, a little sticky, sugary coating. Green apple tones, lemon. Very thin beer base. An interesting palate cleanser.

Not much difference between this and a mikes hard, but still quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

Bottled. Poured clear bright golden with a short-lived, but sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet lemon juice over pale malts.. smelled like it was going to be refreshing, but not a whole lot like beer. The flavor found more sweetened-up lemon juice, with a little tangier character on the edges.. Aspartame-like dryness hit about mid-palate and swallowed up the finish.. no real complaints, aside from my opinion that it was too sweet. Light-bodied and sweet on the palate.. zesty lemon on the edges was enjoyable, but too many sugars got in the way.
