12 ounce bottle, drank straight form it. All fake lemon flavor, but still refreshing in the heat. Not as good as a Linnie, but a decent beer to have by the pool in the summer time, way better than most AB products.

Sampled on 4/11/2012. This fruit beer/shandy pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma is slightly grassy and sweet with some lemon flavor. A light bodied fruit beer/shandy. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Not sure just what I was expecting with this one. I had full expectations of it being like those horrid German raddlers that I have sampled before. Its more like a slightly alcoholic mild lemonade, so its better than the ones I have had in the past. That said its still very unbeer like, the lemon flavor is a little artificial tasting and its malts and hops are really toned down. It is un-offensive but there is really nothing here strong enough tasting to offend. Good carbonation. Would make a decent summer drink, but I donít think I can call it a beer. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

This is a bad beer. The lemon flavor tastes like pledge. I generally like fruit beer, but this is dissappointing.

Pours a very weak looking and pale yellow color. Aroma is mainly of dusty malts, hops, wheat, and lemon. Flavor is similar. It honestly kind of tastes like a Corona thatís not skunked with lemon instead of limes in it. Leaves a lemony wheat finish. Nothing great here.

scooterbub (815) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 7, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy sunshine yellow with a large two inch head that slowly collapses. Taste is of lemon, wheat and some spice. Similar aroma. Reminds me of lemonade, but without the pucker. The body is nice, slightly full, but a bit watery. A good summer beer. Drinkable, a good thirst quencher and I like that it has an abv of 4.2%.

Aroma is lemonade and hints of grains, spices and citrus. The flavor is mildly sweet lemonade along with grains and spices. Better than expected.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 Not bad, but not as good as Leinies Summer Shandy. Slight lemon flavor and very smooth. A good summer beer.

Wow, I am surprisingly pleased with the taste of this Summer Shandy. The lemon flavor is very pleasant.

Very pale yellow, white ring. Scent is wheat, lemon Taste is the same with a lemonade aspect.. It bubbles furiously in a flute, yet feels dull. If lemonade is what you crave, go for a Mikeís instead....or Countrytime. I just donít get it.
