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

Bottle at home. Pours a golden yellow. Clear. No head. Tastes like lemonade with a small about of beer poured in. Not much to it. For mowing the lawn.

Cloudy golden color. Lemonade dominates aroma and taste. Medium body. Not my thing, but in fairness, lemonade taste seems natural.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Like a wit beer and a shandy had a baby. Sort of like lemon and lemon peel were used to brew a wit instead of orange peel. It had a lot more flavor than I remember Leinenkugel Summer Shandy having. Just a great summer refresher.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very cloudy, medium to dark, muddy yellow with an average, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light to moderate wheat; moderate yeast; lemon and lemonade. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and light to moderately acidic; while the finish was slight to lightly sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter. There was lemon, lemonade, wheat, yeast and a little orange. The nearly medium body was fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly astringent finish.

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

Light and refreshing. Less flavor and less put together than Leinenkugelís Summer Shandy but still a decent summer offering thatís a little different than some of the others.

Bottle - drank from bottle, so did not actually see the beer, although I canít imagine it was anything special - typical lemon shandy, pretty much a half beer/half lemonade. Would probably be good on a hot summer day in a refreshing way.

Ehh - tastes like any other Shock Top, but this time itís full of LEMON. The scent is ok, some yeast and fruity aromas, but the flavor is like soggy bread revived by lemon zest.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy yellowish color. No head on this one. Aroma was all lemon and some malts. Flavor was acacidic lemon notes and infused fruits. Not a whole lot to this beer.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with active carbonation. Aroma of lemons. Sweet and mellow and creamy with a crisp clean bite and a dry finish. The lemon is present but not overbearing.
