1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft. Pours a cloudy bright yellow color with a very foamy head. Aroma is wheat, lemons, and a little spice. Tastes like lemon flavored pez. Very sweet, very lemony. A slight amount of spice makes it drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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?

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.

Scored one of these at very reasonable price. Pours hazed Orange yellow. Nose is lemon. Tastes of lemon soda, biscuits, light malt, wheat, and urine. Not too sweet. Fine soda.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 that’s about it. Underwhelming body. Not a winner.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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... That’s 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. I’d pick Leinie’s Summer Shandy over this one any day.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from the LCBO. For my review of this beverage, I would first like to dissect its ingredients list. First, I have to ask: Why does there need to be an ingredients list? Is this were a proper all-natural shandy, the ingredients would be simple: beer and lemonade. But instead, there are 8 ingredients listed, several of which I can’t pronounce and/or don’t know what they are. The first two are "Beer" and "Ale" - wait, aren’t they the same thing? What’s going on here that they need to be listed seperately? Next up is "Sugar" - I know what that is, but have to wonder how much if it was used in order for it to be listed so high up on the list. "Citric Acid" - I guess that will maybe balance the sugar? "Natural Lemonade Flavour" - is this even a thing? Why not just lemon juice? "Acacia Gum" - last I checked this was a thickening agent. So why is it in a liquid? "Modified Coconut Oil (Medium Chain Triglycerides)" - shit’s starting to get a bit weird now. "Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate" - right, that doesn’t sound like something I want to be putting into my body. Oh, I need to drink it now? Well, it doesn’t actually look that bad - nice hazy light gold body, small and tight white head. But the aroma - my god, it’s like someone doused rubber tires with lemon dishwashing liquid and nail polish remover and then lit them on fire. Just horrendous. The flavour is mercifully a bit better, but the "natural" lemon flavour still has a strong artificial/chemical character to it. Barely a quarter of the way into the glass and it starts to remind me of Neo Citran. And then it’s down the drain with the rest of this truly awful "beer"...

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.
