Bottle @ home. Cloudy, banana yellow appearance with a disappearing white head. Bready, lemonade, a bit spicy, wheat malty aroma. Somewhat refreshing, Radler-like, lemonade, sweet wheat, a little spicy flavor. I guess if it was a really hot day I could see myself chugging a couple of these but not otherwise. Not that worthwhile overall.

Bottle. Pours gold with a slight haze and a white head. Light lemony and wheaty aroma. The flavor is sweet and lemony, with light wheaty notes. Not bad.

ExpendableHero (771) - Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Hazy yellow beer with a frothy white head, which quickly disappears. Weak lemon smell. Tastes of watery, sour lemonade. Coriander peel, lemon zest, some hints of sweet malts. Sour finish. Refreshing. but ultimately forgettable.

Appearance was hazy, yellow-tan, with a very small head that immediately disappeared and left zero lace. Lemons on the smell. Maybe some malt but no hops. Taste is struggling. It’s like carbonated lemonade with a little bit of beer in it. Watery and moderately carbonated. Might as well be lemonade. I’d skip this one if I were you. It’s a malternative at best, if not just carbonated lemonade with a little alcohol in it. I wouldn’t call this one beer. Despite slick packaging and no doubt some fancy advertising, this is typical of the crap that budweiser is trying to pass off as craft beer in order to keep their market share from declining even more. This is not even beer, let alone craft. I’m glad I was given a bottle of this, because if I had bought a six pack I would have had to dump five of them.

Bottle: A waste of lemons (actually ’natural’ lemonade flavor), water, glass, paper and aluminum. Food Pairing: Just about anything.

Bottle. Ugh. How did the definition of shandy get linked with lemonade? In my European experiences, they were made with lemon soda (ie, 7Up, which in some places is called ’lemonade’, but ain’t). This drinks like I guess they intended ... mostly bad, industrial lemonade, with a splash of bad, industrial beer. (#4590, 5/7/2012)

Very lemony and slightly tangy. Interesting overall but doesn't really drink like a beer. More like a wine cooler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bubbleflubber (1934) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pours hazy yellow into the glass with a fizzy dissipating head that leaves no lace. The nose is of lemon Pledge. Flavors are of lemon candies, with a seltzer water mouthfeel. Thin and unsubstantiated, this is a bit of a letdown, not too mention cloying and over-carbonated.

Average beer with a big mouthful of lemon overwhelming the flavor. As it turns out, it goes pretty well with Chinese food.

Sample @ Pick’s 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 I’ve had. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not that bad. Not exactly my style but I’ll keep it in mind if I’m ever feeling a shandy. Would make a great lawnmower beer...if I had a lawn to mow
