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

12oz bottle poured into glass. A shock top shandy, how bad could it be? Not enough lemon flavor, or beer flavor for that matter. All around just a poorly made beer/shandy.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is lemon and skunk--seriously, this beer is brand new on the shelves and it smells skunky, WTF? Pours hazy pale yellow with a quickly disappearing head that leaves a collar of foam. Taste is lightly sweet and a bit tart. Along with the lemonade, I can taste a bit of coriander, skunk. It tastes quite a bit like flavored seltzer water. Carbonation is high and the body is thin. This beer is pretty disgraceful.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a 1 finger, bright white head. Aroma is lemon grainy wheat coriander and dishwater. Flavor is lemonade right away, bready yeast, sweetish starchy raw grain and some light, sweet bread spice. Palate is light chalky and has a light, but blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. The aroma is a little off putting, but this stuff actually doesn’t taste all that bad.

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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - drank from bottle, so did not actually see the beer, although I can’t 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.

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