Tastes just as I expected. Good if you like lemon. Great for a sspring or summer beer.

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).

The aroma is kind of deceiving because the lemon taste isnít as strong as the smell. Good beer for a citrus lover.

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.

Sample @ Pickís Liquors. Lightly cloudy gold with minimal head. Aroma of wheat and lemon pine-sol. Taste is light sweet. They get extra points here just because the lemonade flavor seemed natural, unlike some of the other "shandy" beers Iíve had. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not that bad. Not exactly my style but Iíll keep it in mind if Iím ever feeling a shandy. Would make a great lawnmower beer...if I had a lawn to mow

Really a nice crisp brew with not too much of a lemon flavor. Iím not a big fan of citrus in my beer but this one was definitely drinkable. I like Leinieís Summer Shady more but this one isnít bad

Not great. Tastes like a cheap beer, but with some lemon flavor. Easy going down, without much bitter taste. Expected more lemon flavor.

Draft at Amber Rose. Shandy...lemon...really? The lemon and citrus notes were really muted to me. Not bad at all, just a little different than I expected.
