2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Mostly clear orange. Taste is very sweet artificial lemonade flavoring. Mild crisp lager underneath, refreshing at the minimum, but the lemonade tastes over. Least favorite of the spring pack.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear light yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma and flavor is dominated by lemon with a hint of grass. Watery texture with average carbonation. This is a less offensive version of Summer Shandy....the lemon flavor is there in a big way but at least there is enough of a malt background to give it some characteristics of a beer.

Really this particular beer. Very taste of lemonade. Very aroma and flavor. Long and good taste. This beer is really special. I liked it anyway.

Misc.: Enjoy by Aug. 2013
Poured a honey golden hazy color with two fingers of cream white head that dissipated almost right away. Lots of bubbles in the beginning, but that gave way to the surprisingly murky and not clear look. No lacing on the sides on the way down, very bad retention.
Smelled citrus notes, got lemon, lime and peach. Lemon zest and lemon/lime juice. Also some honey and clean, crisp grass hops. Reminded me of the days of cleaning a Mexican restaurant. Just those lemon and limes on the Corona’s and margaritas.
Tasted similar to the nose. Sweet lemon and sweet lime. Almost like a sugary, sweet cider or a Zima, but better. I’ll admit this is my first Radler type, but it’s nice and refreshing. Almost like a liquor mix.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft (below average) carbonation. Clean, crisp and refreshing finish.
Not a bad beer for the type. Definitely different and definitely good for summer.

Smells like lemon lime soda. Any head that was there has instantly vanished. It tastes like lemons, but is not sour enough to seem convincing. The beer backup flavor is fine. Fake carbonation makes it seem a lot like I’m drinking beer flavored sprite though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells like lemon pinesol, lemonade and fruit loops. Palate is basically similar to a carbonated lemonade. Sweet with some tartness

Lemon bomb, very little else, almost tastes like a shandy. Not a big fan of this at all, whoops.

Bottle->SA. Gold with small white head. Aroma: orange peel and lemons. Tste, lemon and oranges. Quite crisp. Should be called Sam Adams Shandy.

I may have stumbled upon the perfect lawnmower beer. Light and crisp with a great lemony tone, the lemony zing in the finish keeps you coming back for more. You can still taste the beer underneath the lemon, which comes across as very juicy, and not sugary at all. Well done.
