12oz bottle, thanks to Jimmy. Mildly hazy paler yellow color. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Minimal white head, fades to nothing. I’m definitely tasting the "Lemonade Flavor Added." Just tastes like a weak wheat with some lemonade "flavor" -- whatever that means. Sharper carbonation. More dry finish, but slightly syrupy aftertaste.. Just a sweet taste, nothing else. The label claims this is a "Belgian-Style Wheat Beer", but this is nothing like that. As the beer warms up slightly, some slight skunky notes start to show up (nose-smell isn’t great either). I haven’t had too many shandies, but surely there are better examples of the style. A reasonably drinkable sweet beer, though. I can understand why people who don’t know better would be fans of this stuff (sorry Jimmy)

Pours pee yellow with lots of carbonation and a tiny white head. Aroma is lemon and wheat. The taste is thin and watery somewhere between a lemon soda and a bud light. Refreshing for a hot day but not a great beer.

Bottle - drank from bottle, so did not actually see the beer, although I can’t imagine it was anything special - typical lemon shandy, pretty much a half beer/half lemonade. Would probably be good on a hot summer day in a refreshing way.

12oz bottle poured into glass. A shock top shandy, how bad could it be? Not enough lemon flavor, or beer flavor for that matter. All around just a poorly made beer/shandy.

Really a nice crisp brew with not too much of a lemon flavor. I’m not a big fan of citrus in my beer but this one was definitely drinkable. I like Leinie’s Summer Shady more but this one isn’t bad

Enjoyable, easy drinking summer offering from A-B. I am not fan of strong lemon taste, and this brew is very subtle with the lemon. Worth a try!

12oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of fake lemon. Poured yellow in color with no head. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of bad lemonade and grains. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lemon and grain finish.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has sweet lemon. Flavor is like a skunky busch with a touch of lemon. Light mouthfeel and a mild lemony abrupt finito.

Ehh - tastes like any other Shock Top, but this time it’s full of LEMON. The scent is ok, some yeast and fruity aromas, but the flavor is like soggy bread revived by lemon zest.
