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. It’s lemony and a little bit tart, but not overly so, and, well, that’s 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 flexin’ their summertime shandy muscles. It’s a bit sad, really.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a whuter head that quickly dissipates leaving some globular lacing. Nose is slight lemon. Body is medium on the American wheat ale thin side. Palate is lemon. This a lighter version of Leinenkugel’s Lemon Shandy and quite enjoyable

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Lemon and coriander aroma - smells like Pledge. Pale yellow color with large head. Lightly sweet lemon and coriander flavor - no malt flavor at all. Bad - any radler you can find from Germany or Austria (or even a French Panache) is going to be better than this.
