Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy gold with white lacing. Smells of wheat and mild lemonade. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not a bad shandy.

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)

PorterPounder (5933) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Lake Ella. Pours a cloudy light golden with a quickly diminishing white head. Barely there aroma with some mown grass notes, just a brief hint of lemon. Flavor is very subdued. Faint traces of watered down lemonade, a hint of yeast, not much else. Mouthfeel is leaning to the thin side. Might be very refreshing if served ice cold I imagine.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Clear yellow with a small white head. The aroma is full of lemons with a hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of sweet lemon notes with a hint of tartness and some malty, sugary biscuit notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Bleh.

Pailhead (5374) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of lemon, mustiness, grass, and faint wheat. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dull yellow with a one finger fizzy white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with lemon grass/lemon candy. It’s more sweet lemon (a flavor I’m not real fond of) instead of sour/tart lemon. The finish has light wheat and cereal notes. It’s light bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Overall...not a fan of the sweet lemon flavors. Obviously they are looking to steal some of the Leinenkugel Summer Shandy crowd, but if I had to choose, it’s an easy choice to go with Leinenkugel.

Strykzone (5331) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Sampled at Heritage Fest. Because why not? Hazy white gold. A lemon nose, as expected. Wheat notes are almost zero. Lemon woth a little malt. Ok, I did it.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - APR 11, 2012
Sampled on 4/11/2012. This fruit beer/shandy pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with a quickly disappearing head. The aroma is slightly grassy and sweet with some lemon flavor. A light bodied fruit beer/shandy. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Not sure just what I was expecting with this one. I had full expectations of it being like those horrid German raddlers that I have sampled before. Its more like a slightly alcoholic mild lemonade, so its better than the ones I have had in the past. That said its still very unbeer like, the lemon flavor is a little artificial tasting and its malts and hops are really toned down. It is un-offensive but there is really nothing here strong enough tasting to offend. Good carbonation. Would make a decent summer drink, but I don’t think I can call it a beer. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
