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

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.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am a shandy drinker and truly enjoy a shandy on a summer day... I tried this as it came out... 12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Overall I feel the citrus flavor had hints of orange in it that did not do it justice, and the lemon reminded me of dish soap... The citrus did not do a great job of masking an overly wheaty kinda watered down brew... I will finish the six pack but will not purchase again in the future.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, pale yellow body with a tall, meringue-like head, though it drops down very fast.
Smell: Artificially-flavored lemonade powder, faint spice, and just enough of a hint of beery barley to remind you this is, indeed, an adult beverage.
Taste: Lightly malty with a faint store-brand honey-flavored cereal sweetness. Given a teeny tiny pinch of ground coriander, though the accumulative lemon flavoring eventually overshadows it. Itís lemony and a little bit tart, but not overly so, and, well, thatís kind of how things go until the faintly fizzly finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Shock Top dared to take Blue Moon head-on, then, they showed up what seasonal pumpkin and fruit beers can REALLY be, and, now, Shock Top is flexiní their summertime shandy muscles. Itís a bit sad, really.
