Draft during RBSG 2014 at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of lemons, soda. Tastes of lemons, wheat, lemonade. Light body with a dry finish. Fine.

No aroma at all, golden, clear, frothy, light sweetness, tastes like slightly bubbly watered-down lemonade, light body, thin feel, average carbonation,

Bottle from Smoker Friendly. Hazy golden straw in color. Spicy grains and a little bitter lemon in the nose. Sweet and wheaty up front. A touch of soapiness. Decent summer refresher.

ChainGangGuy (4781) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2012
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.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle @ home. Cloudy, banana yellow appearance with a disappearing white head. Bready, lemonade, a bit spicy, wheat malty aroma. Somewhat refreshing, Radler-like, lemonade, sweet wheat, a little spicy flavor. I guess if it was a really hot day I could see myself chugging a couple of these but not otherwise. Not that worthwhile overall.

An adequate quaff. Cheap, but refreshing. Shocktop is a nice brewery, but nothing to get excited about.

rougeau13 (2549) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bright hazy yellow with a tight white head. Aroma of lemonade and wheat. Taste like a weak beer was poured into sweet lemonade. Light bodied. Not too bad.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2014
Honestly, not As bad as I thought I would be. A little sweet and And slightly lemonsolly. Aroma is pleasant fake lemons but flavor is not as pleasing. Could have been much worse.

AgentAle (1509) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Aroma is sweet grains and citrus. Taste is much the same. Some straw and lightly roasted malts. The lemon juice does dominate most the experience however. The body is a cloudy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.
