12oz drank straight from the bottle. Not enough lemon or beer flavor. Overall, quite poorly made. Muddled grain and lemony taste. Not horrible, but doesn’t taste anything like a beer. Eh.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Nice thin small bubble lacing, medium carbonation, thin body, and light lemon aroma. Taste is grainy wheat and lemon. OK for what it is.

THOUGHTS: Like a wit beer and a shandy had a baby. Sort of like lemon and lemon peel were used to brew a wit instead of orange peel. It had a lot more flavor than I remember Leinenkugel Summer Shandy having. Just a great summer refresher.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very cloudy, medium to dark, muddy yellow with an average, ever so slightly off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light to moderate wheat; moderate yeast; lemon and lemonade. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and light to moderately acidic; while the finish was slight to lightly sweet, moderately acidic and slightly bitter. There was lemon, lemonade, wheat, yeast and a little orange. The nearly medium body was fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly astringent finish.

Bottle: A waste of lemons (actually ’natural’ lemonade flavor), water, glass, paper and aluminum. Food Pairing: Just about anything.

Wow, I am surprisingly pleased with the taste of this Summer Shandy. The lemon flavor is very pleasant.

"Natural lemonade flavor"? Not sure what that is but it does successfully avoid tasting artificial. Light lemony aroma and taste over a weak but inoffensive wheat.

Cloudy golden color. Lemonade dominates aroma and taste. Medium body. Not my thing, but in fairness, lemonade taste seems natural.

Ehh - tastes like any other Shock Top, but this time it’s full of LEMON. The scent is ok, some yeast and fruity aromas, but the flavor is like soggy bread revived by lemon zest.

Bottle. Poured a hazy yellowish color. No head on this one. Aroma was all lemon and some malts. Flavor was acacidic lemon notes and infused fruits. Not a whole lot to this beer.

Bottle - drank from bottle, so did not actually see the beer, although I can’t imagine it was anything special - typical lemon shandy, pretty much a half beer/half lemonade. Would probably be good on a hot summer day in a refreshing way.
