2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle 11/29/12 Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus, lemonade, and slight wheat. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is another style I don’t care for.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First off, by way of disclosure, I was sent a six-pack by the Shock Top brand manager for review (see it on You Tube as a "One-Take Beer Review"). Second off, I kind of surprised myself by liking it. But take that with a grain of salt of you want. Pour a very fizzy head over a pale, hazy beer body. Lemon smell is not as pronounced as I thought, in fact there’s more of the wit spiciness in the nose than I would have expected. No Lemon Pledge flavor, just a lemony backbone. I wish they would stop dancing around label requirements for the vague ingredient "Natural Lemonade Flavor," but I’m going to say this stands out pretty well against all the other lemonade-diluted Summer Shandys.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with relatively little head. Nose is strongly sour and lemony. Taste is all the bad parts of a spiced lemonade. 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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very pale yellow, white ring.
Scent is wheat, lemon
Taste is the same with a lemonade aspect..
It bubbles furiously in a flute, yet feels dull.
If lemonade is what you crave, go for a Mike’s instead....or Countrytime.
I just don’t get it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A sample among six of its kind. My second favorite. Pours pale yellow with a small head. The aroma is like a wheat beer with some lemonade. The flavor has a bit of beer but mostly lemonade. This one tasted more like concentrate.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from pikapp327. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is zesty attic dust. Taste is breast and kinda gross. Watered down lemon finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Light wheat and lemon aroma. Hazy straw color, moderate white head with not retention. Weird lemon and wheat flavor. I’d almost describe it as flat if it weren’t for the heavy carbonation.
