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.

A really unique beer. Not only is the lemon taste prominent but it is not overpowering. A very refreshing beer.

I’m sure the base beer is the same so the lemon additive must be better than the raspberry additive. Tasty, zesty and cuts through nicely. Not an IPA or even an APA but enjoyable.

Very good summer time beer. The lemon is refreshing and when you during 15 of the you are hammered!

473ml can. Poured unfiltered school bus yellow, pretty good head that died quickly. Sour lemon and wheat aromas, bit of lemonade sweetness. Taste is light wheat beer with lemonade mix in it, which isn’t too bad. Overall, didn\t go overpoweringly sweet or sour, I’d almost say bland if I didn’t kind of like it.

poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. this beer has a very generic lemonade flavor with some beer tossed in. I found it refreshing but not memorable.

Good beer for a summertime but kinda has a bitter after taste but it’s cheaper for the lemon shandy beers

Shock Top Lemon Shandy has a thin, white head, a cloudy, yellow-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of light wheat bread, mainly, with a background lemony note. Taste is of a stronger lemonade and sugary aspect, with a noticeable and pleasant wheat bread component. Mouthfeel is on the light side, and Shock Top Lemon Shandy finishes somewhat tart and very easy drinking. RJT

Pours a a murky straw color with a small quickly disappearing head. Aroma of lemon. Flavor overwhelming lemon with a slight hops note. Large bubbles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
