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 thereís 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 Iím going to say this stands out pretty well against all the other lemonade-diluted Summer Shandys.

Jow (2698) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2015
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.

bigda83 (487) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2015
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).

mkgrenwel (602) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Tastes like carbonated lemonade with a touch of drier biscuity malt replacing some lemonade sweetness. Aroma contains a bit of sour creamed corn in with the lemonade. I guess itís fine if you want a lemon soda, but itís hardly beer.

Cloudy yellow color, white head. Sweet, malty, lemon scent. Lemon, fresh, lime taste. Lemon aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

ordybill (658) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2015
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.
