Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma and taste is lemon over the top. Wow, real weird, lemonade type flavor.

Aroma is a sweet citrus. Taste is a cheap beer with lemon flavor. Overall not the best.

Drank from a 12 oz. bottle. Not a very impressive color, kind of murky. The lemon flavor tastes more like that fake lemon juice you can by in plastic bottles.

Bought 12 oz bottle and drank from pint glass. Lemon flavor was overpowering, and reminded me of a Belgian lemonade without any of the kick. Jury is still out.., probably better when drunk...

bottle - Pours very pale, cloudy yellow with a small, white, fizzy head. It has a mild lemon aroma and a sweet, lemony flavor. It’s thin, bland, and kind of refreshing, but water is refreshing and it’s a lot cheaper.

A really unique beer. Not only is the lemon taste prominent but it is not overpowering. A very refreshing beer.

bottle: pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. I can smell the lemons before I even put my nose to this one... The surprising part is that the taste is not overpowered by them... it’s a nice, refreshing wit beer, that is backed up afterwards by a refreshing lemon "wash" if you want to call it that. It leaves you feeling...well... refreshed. it’s really good actually. It makes me want to sit in the sun, pounding these all day.

First off, by way of disclosure, I was sent a six-pack by the Shock Top brand manager for review (see it on You Tube as a "One-Take Beer Review"). Second off, I kind of surprised myself by liking it. But take that with a grain of salt of you want. Pour a very fizzy head over a pale, hazy beer body. Lemon smell is not as pronounced as I thought, in fact there’s more of the wit spiciness in the nose than I would have expected. No Lemon Pledge flavor, just a lemony backbone. I wish they would stop dancing around label requirements for the vague ingredient "Natural Lemonade Flavor," but I’m going to say this stands out pretty well against all the other lemonade-diluted Summer Shandys.

An adequate quaff. Cheap, but refreshing. Shocktop is a nice brewery, but nothing to get excited about.

Bottle from Wegman’s leesburg. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Smells like corn and a hint of artificial lemon flavoring. Mouthfeel is a bit slick. Tastes of artificial lemon and a slight corn oil note. Finishes badly. Just awful!
