DiarmaidBHK (3380) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle from Wegman’s leesburg. Pours yellow with a thin white head. Smells like corn and a hint of artificial lemon flavoring. Mouthfeel is a bit slick. Tastes of artificial lemon and a slight corn oil note. Finishes badly. Just awful!

djd07 (3371) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
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.

RobertDale (3345) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Sample at Hopfest 2014. Comes a light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, grain, and malt. Taste is lemon, grain, and malt. Not much positive here.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2012
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.

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Draft at Amber Rose. Shandy...lemon...really? The lemon and citrus notes were really muted to me. Not bad at all, just a little different than I expected.

ReggieDunlap (3028) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has sweet lemon. Flavor is like a skunky busch with a touch of lemon. Light mouthfeel and a mild lemony abrupt finito.

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Cheap artificial lemon flavor, buttery wheat, and some weird flavor thta reminds me of cheap lemon flavored malt liquor. This is rough.

jeremytoni (2950) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2012
From a can poured a light straw color with a fair amount of head. Light lemony malty flavor with a quick finish.

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2012
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.

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.
