1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Not gonna get to in depth on this beer since it’s pretty mediocre, but it’s basically what it’s claiming...beer/lemonade. Not a fan personally, but it isn’t offensively bad. I pretty typically hate any kind of beer of this sort, lemonade beer, blueberry beer, etc. They almost always have a weird, artificial flavor to the taste, even if it isn’t they never seem to shake that. If you just got done mowing your lawn after a hot summer afternoon, well maybe this would be pretty crisp and refreshing, but why not just go get a different, better beer? And obviously on the weaker end of beers too. 4.5% alcohol.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a gold color with a white head that dissipates rather quickly. Fresh lemony aroma. Light bodied, taste of a malt-wheat combo with a lemon finish.Not a fan of lemony beers. Not bad, but not great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from the Beers of Summer 2013 sampler case. Almost happy to see a consensus of low scoring reviews as I really disliked this offering from Sam Adams. My wife on the other hand loved it, so go figure the variance of taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours thin and translucent with a cheddar orange body and no head. Aroma is lemon punch with a diet lemon/lime soda. Flavor is a light lemon Pledge and saccharin blend, with a hint of grassy wheat in the finish. Average and tingly on the tongue

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $12.97 (w/ VONS card) for the summer variety 12-pack
Purchased: March 25, 2013
Consumed: April 5, 2013
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
