3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

12 oz. bottle. Poured hazy yellow with a dissipating white head. Aroma was lemons and sweet lemonade. Taste was very sweet and tart lemonade. Couldn’t drink more than one or two of these in a night, just to sweet.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy yellow color. Not much head. Okay head retention, okay lacing. Looks a lot like lemonade.
Aroma is not super lemony, in fact barely at all. I smell more wheat than lemon.
Fortunately, some lemon comes in on the taste. But it’s more like lemon zest. Taste is not tart, mostly sweet, and biscuity.
Mouthfeel is very light and supremely drinkable. It is very refreshing.
Overall, this is a decent shandy. It is perfect for its intended purpose, which is a light summertime hot day refreshment. More accurately would be a lemon wheat beer. I would certainly consider a sixer of this for an afternoon of yard work. I think I like Leinenkugels better. Usually, I find Shock Top products disappointing, but this is the best one I’ve had yet.

For a summer shandy its just not right. Ive had a few others and this just did not go down right. Its still an ok beer, but i would label it a lemon wheat beer not a full in summer shandy.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!
