12oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of fake lemon. Poured yellow in color with no head. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of bad lemonade and grains. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, lemon and grain finish.

Wow. This is actually kinda good. Smell is of some lemon but in zest form. Looks decent. Light and a bit bubbly. It tastes a tad of soda, but for a shandy is nice. Better than Leineís for sure. Iím surprised, especially since I donít like lemons much. A good day starter.

Iím sure the base beer is the same so the lemon additive must be better than the raspberry additive. Tasty, zesty and cuts through nicely. Not an IPA or even an APA but enjoyable.

12oz bottle. Aroma of lemon, light spiciness, and hints of wheat, malts, and hops. Flavor the same. Light texture. Donít understand why people buy this.

burg326 (4736) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2012
12 ounce bottle, drank straight form it. All fake lemon flavor, but still refreshing in the heat. Not as good as a Linnie, but a decent beer to have by the pool in the summer time, way better than most AB products.

Aroma is lemonade and hints of grains, spices and citrus. The flavor is mildly sweet lemonade along with grains and spices. Better than expected.

Whole lemon and shitty hay nose. Cloudy amber, medium head. Lemon flavor, somewhat beery. Not half bad, quite refreshing.

How could I have missed this in the past? Is it new? From a bottle, looks better than expected. Some sediment on bottom of bottle. Smell is somewhat musty. Looks like cloudy lemonade. Some artificial flavor int he background. Decent fine sharp fizz. Does not show much alky. Fer sure it is some sort of lemony thing happening. Somewhat dull finish. OK, so I smell a little more lemon in there now. Not bad but not nearly as good as that curious traveler I just had a few minutes ago.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a hazed, pale yellow body with a tall, meringue-like head, though it drops down very fast.

Smell: Artificially-flavored lemonade powder, faint spice, and just enough of a hint of beery barley to remind you this is, indeed, an adult beverage.

Taste: Lightly malty with a faint store-brand honey-flavored cereal sweetness. Given a teeny tiny pinch of ground coriander, though the accumulative lemon flavoring eventually overshadows it. Itís lemony and a little bit tart, but not overly so, and, well, thatís kind of how things go until the faintly fizzly finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Shock Top dared to take Blue Moon head-on, then, they showed up what seasonal pumpkin and fruit beers can REALLY be, and, now, Shock Top is flexiní their summertime shandy muscles. Itís a bit sad, really.

12oz, twist-off bottle. Yellow label. Pours cloudy gold color. no head. Aroma of a wheat ale with lemon Pledge added to it. Tastes like wheat ale with artificial lemon flavor and a touch of vomit added. Gross and not refreshing. It is a lightly flavored, Wheat Beer, thin and watery. Its a waste of time unless you are a girl that doesnít have taste buds. (3377)
