Big white head. Lots of lacing. No nose at all. Almost no taste. Slight sweet, slight citrus. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow. This is actually kinda good. Smell is of some lemon but in zest form. Looks decent. Light and a bit bubbly. It tastes a tad of soda, but for a shandy is nice. Better than Leine’s for sure. I’m surprised, especially since I don’t like lemons much. A good day starter.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a 1 finger, bright white head. Aroma is lemon grainy wheat coriander and dishwater. Flavor is lemonade right away, bready yeast, sweetish starchy raw grain and some light, sweet bread spice. Palate is light chalky and has a light, but blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. The aroma is a little off putting, but this stuff actually doesn’t taste all that bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home. Cloudy, banana yellow appearance with a disappearing white head. Bready, lemonade, a bit spicy, wheat malty aroma. Somewhat refreshing, Radler-like, lemonade, sweet wheat, a little spicy flavor. I guess if it was a really hot day I could see myself chugging a couple of these but not otherwise. Not that worthwhile overall.

Bottle. Pours gold with a slight haze and a white head. Light lemony and wheaty aroma. The flavor is sweet and lemony, with light wheaty notes. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy yellow beer with a frothy white head, which quickly disappears. Weak lemon smell. Tastes of watery, sour lemonade. Coriander peel, lemon zest, some hints of sweet malts. Sour finish. Refreshing. but ultimately forgettable.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Appearance was hazy, yellow-tan, with a very small head that immediately disappeared and left zero lace.
Lemons on the smell. Maybe some malt but no hops.
Taste is struggling. It’s like carbonated lemonade with a little bit of beer in it.
Watery and moderately carbonated. Might as well be lemonade.
I’d skip this one if I were you. It’s a malternative at best, if not just carbonated lemonade with a little alcohol in it. I wouldn’t call this one beer. Despite slick packaging and no doubt some fancy advertising, this is typical of the crap that budweiser is trying to pass off as craft beer in order to keep their market share from declining even more. This is not even beer, let alone craft.
I’m glad I was given a bottle of this, because if I had bought a six pack I would have had to dump five of them.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle: A waste of lemons (actually ’natural’ lemonade flavor), water, glass, paper and aluminum. Food Pairing: Just about anything.

Bottle. Ugh. How did the definition of shandy get linked with lemonade? In my European experiences, they were made with lemon soda (ie, 7Up, which in some places is called ’lemonade’, but ain’t). This drinks like I guess they intended ... mostly bad, industrial lemonade, with a splash of bad, industrial beer. (#4590, 5/7/2012)
