Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
12oz drank straight from the bottle. Not enough lemon or beer flavor. Overall, quite poorly made. Muddled grain and lemony taste. Not horrible, but doesn’t taste anything like a beer. Eh.

Draft. Semi-clear yellow with white head. Aroma is lemon and light malts. Taste is lemon soda mixed with bland lager. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation and citric aftertaste. Not very good as a "beer" but quite a nice option to a soda.

Can LCBO: yellow Cloudy beer with tiny head. Lemongrass, pine and lemon rind in the taste and nose. Watery and papery mouthfeel. Good enough for a hot day during the euro cup

Cartoonkhaki (1245) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
Hazy yellow with bit of a puffy head. Aroma is sweet and almost ginger ale like. Anything lemony is weak. I keep on thinking ginger ale and not lemon. Light body but a refreshing feel after drinking.

Hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Tangy lemon aroma. Much, much sweeter than expected for a lemon base. This could be a dessert beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

ozzy70 (601) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 26, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Poured hazy yellow with a dissipating white head. Aroma was lemons and sweet lemonade. Taste was very sweet and tart lemonade. Couldn’t drink more than one or two of these in a night, just to sweet.

Pours a cloudy yellow color. Not much head. Okay head retention, okay lacing. Looks a lot like lemonade.

Aroma is not super lemony, in fact barely at all. I smell more wheat than lemon.

Fortunately, some lemon comes in on the taste. But it’s more like lemon zest. Taste is not tart, mostly sweet, and biscuity.

Mouthfeel is very light and supremely drinkable. It is very refreshing.

Overall, this is a decent shandy. It is perfect for its intended purpose, which is a light summertime hot day refreshment. More accurately would be a lemon wheat beer. I would certainly consider a sixer of this for an afternoon of yard work. I think I like Leinenkugels better. Usually, I find Shock Top products disappointing, but this is the best one I’ve had yet.

For a summer shandy its just not right. Ive had a few others and this just did not go down right. Its still an ok beer, but i would label it a lemon wheat beer not a full in summer shandy.

At home from the bottle. Tart, overly sweet fake lemon flavored beer. Citrus, yeast, lemon drop with a mild beer after taste. Came across as more of a yeasty wine cooler to me. If you like the flavor of lemon drops and sweet drinks then this may appeal to you. I am pouring the rest down the drain.

Tricker (376) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Bière blanche de 4.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède évidemment un nez de citron. Elle a également un col mousseux au versement. Son goût est citronné, simple, mais intéressant. Il y a un petit aspect fade, mais une finale d’orange rend cette bière intéressante. Elle est légèrement salée en arrière-goût. Ce n’est pas une grande bière, mais tout de même une bonne bière d’été, car elle est rafraîchissante.
