2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 341 ml from The Beer Store
Aroma: not as sweet as I worried that it would be. Mild lemon feel. Soft caramel, candy and what behind.
Look: poured as hazy amber with fizzy mid-sized white top.
Taste/Palate: medium lighter bodied with shallow finish. Watery with mild lemon like notes. Semi sweet. Decent as summer beach drink.

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.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is lemon zest and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a strong citrus and lots of fizz like a soda with a nice lemon flavor. Easy to drink a decent fruit beer from Shock Top.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.
