Pours a cloudy yellow with a whuter head that quickly dissipates leaving some globular lacing. Nose is slight lemon. Body is medium on the American wheat ale thin side. Palate is lemon. This a lighter version of Leinenkugel’s Lemon Shandy and quite enjoyable

Very lemony and slightly tangy. Interesting overall but doesn't really drink like a beer. More like a wine cooler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma has got definite lemonade overtones with an undertone of clove and banana that is more prevalent in shocktop. Appearance is a cloudy yellow with just an tinge of orange and a small head that diminishes quickly into a soapy film. Taste has got more of the wheat beer notes, Wheat, a bit of banana, and some of the lemonade mixed in there as well. Palate is very carbonated, with a pleasant lemonade rather clean aftertaste. Overall, It’s a refreshing beer on a hot summer day…Nuff said. Cheers!

arondee (565) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Pours pee yellow with lots of carbonation and a tiny white head. Aroma is lemon and wheat. The taste is thin and watery somewhere between a lemon soda and a bud light. Refreshing for a hot day but not a great beer.

Bricks (597) - Delaware, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Hazy fizzy, golden hay yellow. The smell is like old fruit and wheat. Taste is very lemony, sweeter than I had envisioned. Goes down smooth.

GenDV138 (1370) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2014
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.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, 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 (9128) - 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 (2007) - 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.
