Big Island Shandy is an unfiltered premium ale that is refreshing and full of flavor. Artfully blending a rich malt presence with citrus flavor and aroma, nothing goes down as smooth as a BIG ISLAND SHANDY on a warm summer day.

This is a sweet, nearly undrinkable mess. Really not satisfying, wouldnt be good regardless of temperature outside. Just bad.

Picked up a single 16-oz aluminum can at Cellars Wine & Spirits in Shorewood, MN. Pours a clear golden straw colored ale with a fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind a thin white ring. Aroma of Lemonhead sour candy, some white pepper, nutmeg and a hint of mincemeat. Taste is light bodied, more light golden grain and corn malt in taste than aroma with some light Jolly Rancher lemon candy and sugar. Finish is light, a hint of white pepper and a short lived corn and sweet lemon aftertaste. An average summer lemon shandy with some spice.

Surprisingly refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day. Prefer this over the "other" popular shandy. More drinkable. Love the 16oz can and the the Save-Our-Lakes non profit. These guys are giving back 100% of profits. Drink this and feel good about it..

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pale gold pour with a white head. Mild lemon aroma and taste. Just okay.
