2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz via bottle at The Pearl. Aroma of lemonade, lemon zest, wheat malts, and light spices. Similar flavor, with a light tart finish. Not too bad, kind of refreshing.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle. Faker than Pam Anderson. Lemon flavor is unpleasantly artificial and overdone. I can’t imagine who this would appeal to.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m 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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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. It’s lemony and a little bit tart, but not overly so, and, well, that’s 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 flexin’ their summertime shandy muscles. It’s a bit sad, really.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is dusty with dish water and lemon candy. The appearance is hazy gold with a nice head. The taste is pretty much like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not much here seems like a fake out.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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 doesn’t have taste buds. (3377)

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.
