Iím a rookie in this beer rating but here it goes. Found this putting together a pic a six didnít realize it was a beer. Not your traditional beer. Aroma is somewhat strong defiantly lemon. Appearance: Color is a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head that does not linger. Taste is of a strong but sweet lemonade and the finish has sort of a zing it. Palate: Medium bodied, sticky texture and a somewhat fizzy carbonation. The finish is has a abrupt bite to it. This has very little taste of traditional beer taste but overall a pleasant surprise. Think it would be better enjoyed in the summer rather then the winter.

crossovert (7866) - Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
355ml bottle. Hazed brown/gold pour. Fizzy head that quickly disispates. Smell is sour lemon and sweet malt. Flavor is lemon, herbs, malt, caramel. It certainly is more beerlike than a mikes hard but I donít know if I would take this over that when looking for alcoholic soda.

Bottle at brewfest. Light pour with white head. Smells of lemon. Tastes of lemon and slight beer. Just a lot of lemon but refreshing

This is the best adult lemonade Iíve had outside of some really good Radlers in Germany. This is sweet, but still has some lager-esque beer taste to it unlike Summer Shandy which just tastes like sugar. Itís still very sugary, but how are you going to get to Lemonade without sugar? A lot of review seem to be holding that against this, but other than pouring a bottle of lager and a bottle of lemonade together you arenít going to end up with something better in this sub-category. Itís way more drinkable than the malt liquor lemonade drinks like Mikes. This is my favorite beer in the summer now. Absolutely perfect on a summer Saturday afternoon.

Bottle - Clear golden with a ring of off-white head. Nose is lemon, pear, and a whole bunch of cane sugar. Whoa daddy is this sweet. Taste is...damn. Balls. Itís sweet, but for me itís not cloying. Itís got some lemon acidity that cuts it a bit, and a hint of honey, light yeastiness, and grainy malt in the background. Finishes a bit tart, with lemonade coming through a bit more. Overcarbonated, slick and thin. Yes, this sucker is REALLY sweet, but the Mountain Dew-swilling 10-year-old in me really likes it, too. Thisíd be a guilty pleasure for me if I allowed those. (Iím a douche)

Dark yellow. Basically no head. Aroma is lemonade - lemon and sugar. Same flavor, some beer character in the finish. Crisp and refreshing. Sweet. Mild tartness. Surprisingly big body.

Has a nice lemon scent with a light cloudy golden color. Has a very sweet taste, refreshing for camping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Poured a pale, cloudy light gold with a quickly fading head and lace. Aroma was of sweet lemonade with twingle of fruity malt. Taste was sweet lemonade initially and then slipped into a slight malt flavor with tangy finish. Hops seemed minimally present. Palate was average. Overall, I thought this was the lemonade equivalent of something similar to New Glarus Belgium Red (cherry). Very easy drinking and refreshing in the summer.
