bottle: pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. I can smell the lemons before I even put my nose to this one... The surprising part is that the taste is not overpowered by them... itís a nice, refreshing wit beer, that is backed up afterwards by a refreshing lemon "wash" if you want to call it that. It leaves you feeling...well... refreshed. itís really good actually. It makes me want to sit in the sun, pounding these all day.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 Not bad but not great. Wheat beer with fake lemon flavor. That pretty much sums it up. Decent on a hot day. Nothing to write home about.

12 oz bottle. Hey I got this "summer beer " in mid September on clearance for $9.99 a case - so I am not complaining!
12 oz bottle.
Pours a cloudy light golden with a quickly diminishing white head. Barely there aroma with some mown grass notes, just a brief hint of lemon., slightly tangy. Flavor is very subdued. Faint traces of watered down lemonade, a hint of yeast, not much else. Mouthfeel is leaning to the thin side. Can be very refreshing if served ice cold.
I see where some here are hating on this beer, but for a "mass produced Shandy- this is not bad. A lot of the ladies will like this.
Not a hand crafted "throwback" English Shandy by any means.

Pours a hazy yellow with a lemon smell. The taste of this is more like lemonade with beer flavor than a beer with lemon flavor. Nice on a hot day and very refreshing. It is very good for what it is, do not go into this one thinking that the lemon flavor will be subtle it does taste like beer lemonade.

I didnít hate this. Pours a muddy yellow. Aromas are lemonade. Similar flavors. Nice and sweet. Very easy to drink. Pretty one note. But its a good note. I could drink a thousand of these on a hot day. Goes down like sweet lemon water

Alright, folks, Iím a bicyclist and I know the origin of shandy - lemonade and beer to boost TDF riders. So... this isnít a bad example of that summer brew, but it needs a stronger and more capable beer base, like the Europeans produce (generally).

12 ounce bottle, drank straight form it. All fake lemon flavor, but still refreshing in the heat. Not as good as a Linnie, but a decent beer to have by the pool in the summer time, way better than most AB products.

From a can poured a light straw color with a fair amount of head. Light lemony malty flavor with a quick finish.

I am a shandy drinker and truly enjoy a shandy on a summer day... I tried this as it came out... 12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Overall I feel the citrus flavor had hints of orange in it that did not do it justice, and the lemon reminded me of dish soap... The citrus did not do a great job of masking an overly wheaty kinda watered down brew... I will finish the six pack but will not purchase again in the future.
