2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It looks nice enough. Golden and foggy. However it doesnt taste like much more than orange juice. There is a slight, SLIGHT hoppy aftertaste, but its nothing that a bottom shelf beer couldnt boast. Its a decent alternative to low quality/price shandi beers, but its nothing i would write home about.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has lemon candy...like a jolly rancher...and some wheaty notes. Tastes like lemon hard candy too...not acidic or tart...more sweet. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish has refreshing lemony citrus.

Bottle to pint. Looks good; light and inviting. Smells moot. Tastes good; definitely the best shandy I’ve ever had. Mouthfeel is good. too. Overall, a great shandy.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, and not much else. Similar to a sprite. Taste is much the same. I love Hoppin Frog but not this brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a weizen glass. Appearance is bright, almost neon yellow with a large white head of foam that dissipates almost immediately. Aroma is a nearly offputting citrus yeast blend that should have given me a heads up to go ahead and pour this down the drain. Taste is like a minute maid lemonade that got dumped into a bag of sugar and then into some hefeweizen. I did end up dumping about half the glass in the yard. It’s just too sweet. Almost sickly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from a generous trader. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big lemon, lime, and citrus, along with mild bready wheat. Flavor is like a lemon-infused Sprite without all of the sugar. Lemony and citrusy with alcohol instead of sugar. Finish is sweet citrus. Interesting take on a shandy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a cloudy yellow-orange color with a minimal white head that evaporates quickly. Sparse spots of lacing on the glass. Citrusy aroma with some malt behind it. Medium body with a zesty orange and lemon character with some sweet malt and yeast in the background. The finish is fruity with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Maybe not the right time of year for a beverage like this, but pretty average overall.

Bomber. Poured cloudy pale golden with nothing going for head.. did not look good. The aroma picked up freshly-squeezed and sweetened lemons over a bready base.. touch of honey too.. warm, sour undertones.. no surprises here. The flavor found more tart lemon zest throughout, with a pale and bready base.. some lemon meat down there too.. sweet-tart feel on the finish.. too many sugars to be really refreshing. Light-medium bodied, tart, and grainy on the palate.. very little carbonation.. OK feel and flow.

11/24/11. Happy Thanksgiving! 22oz bottle courtesy Tim! Hazy yellow pour, reminds of a pale witbier, with a small white head that fades. Light, sweet aroma of lemon peel, a bit of window cleaner, and pale malts. Sweet flavor of lemonade, a bit of cleaner again, something that reminds me of mint, and a touch of sweet maltiness. Can’t say I love it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light vibrant clear yellow pour, little carbonation and a lemony aroma. Flavor was mostly lemon, malt and that was about it. Decent beer and not overpowering on the lemon, but more of an alcopop in taste.
