tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 Tap: At a Toby Keith concert. I hate county. What is my life right now? Dingy, golden-yellow, murky and hazy with a thin, wispy white head that reduces to a ring in record time. Aroma is light lemon zest, slightly tart lemon juice, faint grainy and wheaty underbody... Thatís about it. Artificially sweet lemons. Taste is disappointing, too. Lots of grains and malts up front with sweet lemon throughout. Overdone, artificial, and just not that good. Lightly tart in the middle, but it fades to a big sweetness in the finish. Aftertaste of grains and lemon. Iíd pick Leinieís Summer Shandy over this one any day.

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 thereís 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 Iím going to say this stands out pretty well against all the other lemonade-diluted Summer Shandys.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, short lived, fizzy head, with no lacing over a hazy, yellow (SRM 3) fizzy body.....nose is lemonade, hints of wheat malts, no hops, esters, beer character.....taste is moderately sweet lemonade, minimal hops, no esters.....mouth feel, light body, light acid, high carbonation makes for many belches, finally it has a long lingering sweetness. This is really not particularly good as the underlying beer is well disguised. BJCP 5/2/9/4/5

Sample @ Pickís Liquors. Lightly cloudy gold with minimal head. Aroma of wheat and lemon pine-sol. Taste is light sweet. They get extra points here just because the lemonade flavor seemed natural, unlike some of the other "shandy" beers Iíve had. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not that bad. Not exactly my style but Iíll keep it in mind if Iím ever feeling a shandy. Would make a great lawnmower beer...if I had a lawn to mow

jake65 (2810) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle: Pale yellow color with a bit of white head. Lemony, both in taste and smell. Actually a good, fresh lemon presence. A little thin, but OK. Has it been called cheerleader beer yet?

pintbypint (2757) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
341ml brown bottle. Yellow pour, hazy. Fat white head. Lemony nose. Taste has lemon, a little wheat and mineral water notes. Plain finish. Light bodied. Not that interesting.

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma and taste is lemon over the top. Wow, real weird, lemonade type flavor.

Fratto (2709) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2012
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.

Spab (2678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour with thin white head. Aroma is dominated sweet candied lemon with hints of wheat. Flavour is also quite sweet with candyish lemon overwhelming everything else - maybe a little wheat shows through but thatís about it. Underwhelming body. Not a winner.
