3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

At home from the bottle. Tart, overly sweet fake lemon flavored beer. Citrus, yeast, lemon drop with a mild beer after taste. Came across as more of a yeasty wine cooler to me. If you like the flavor of lemon drops and sweet drinks then this may appeal to you. I am pouring the rest down the drain.

Bière blanche de 4.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède évidemment un nez de citron. Elle a également un col mousseux au versement. Son goût est citronné, simple, mais intéressant. Il y a un petit aspect fade, mais une finale d’orange rend cette bière intéressante. Elle est légèrement salée en arrière-goût. Ce n’est pas une grande bière, mais tout de même une bonne bière d’été, car elle est rafraîchissante.

Subtle & solid shandy! Hazy gold pour w/out much of a head or lacing. The aroma is fruity & sweet. The taste is sweet throughout but subtle enough where it’s not overbearing. Light & drinkable - makes for a decent summer brew!

Scored one of these at very reasonable price. Pours hazed Orange yellow. Nose is lemon. Tastes of lemon soda, biscuits, light malt, wheat, and urine. Not too sweet. Fine soda.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Poured a murky yellow with little to no head. Aroma of lemon, biscuit, and belgian yeast. Flavor followed the nose, but something was off there. Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, smooth to finish. Refreshing and easy-drinking, but not that great. I much prefer the Leinenkeugels (my spelling is probably way off).
