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. Itís like carbonated lemonade with a little bit of beer in it.
Watery and moderately carbonated. Might as well be lemonade.
Iíd skip this one if I were you. Itís a malternative at best, if not just carbonated lemonade with a little alcohol in it. I wouldnít 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.
Iím 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.

Bottle: A waste of lemons (actually ínaturalí 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 ílemonadeí, but ainít). This drinks like I guess they intended ... mostly bad, industrial lemonade, with a splash of bad, industrial beer. (#4590, 5/7/2012)

Very lemony and slightly tangy. Interesting overall but doesn't really drink like a beer. More like a wine cooler.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy yellow into the glass with a fizzy dissipating head that leaves no lace. The nose is of lemon Pledge. Flavors are of lemon candies, with a seltzer water mouthfeel. Thin and unsubstantiated, this is a bit of a letdown, not too mention cloying and over-carbonated.

Average beer with a big mouthful of lemon overwhelming the flavor. As it turns out, it goes pretty well with Chinese food.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample @ Pickís Liquors. Lightly cloudy gold with minimal head. Aroma of wheat and lemon pine-sol. Taste is light sweet. They get extra points here just because the lemonade flavor seemed natural, unlike some of the other "shandy" beers Iíve had. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not that bad. Not exactly my style but Iíll keep it in mind if Iím ever feeling a shandy. Would make a great lawnmower beer...if I had a lawn to mow

12oz bottle from the local gas station. pours a glowing murky yellow with copious white head that goes away quickly. Nose is lemonade with a twist of lime. Flavors adds a malty character with a little spice. Flavor is sweet and tart. Medium to light body with watery texture. Not offensive and even tasty. oh, thereís a burp.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a thin off-white fizzy head. Poor head retention. Aroma of candied lemon and floral notes. The taste is wheat, spice, lemon candy. Thin bodied. Below even what I was expecting, but not terrible.
