355ml twist off clear bottle. Clear gold pour, aroma is lemon extract, malt. Flavor is lemon, metal, and malt. There are better shandy/radlers out there.
Post tasting thoughts:
This bottle had to be a couple years old, it had a certain "staleness" to it. It wasn’t terrible as far as a shandy goes, just another soda beer.
Aroma: Sweet Lemons, Wheat
Appearance: Mildly Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, Thin White Head Ring, Minimal Lacing
Taste: Mild Lemon, Mild Grainy Malt
Mouthfeel: Average Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Bitter BrewIPA (94) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2015
12oz can into pint glass, more lemon than I expected but ok to sip on a warm summer night.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Like most macro shandies, this is fine if you’re willing to get over the fact that it’s just some shitty macro shandy. Not overly sweet, clean lager base, and some light lemon juicy sweetness. A summer chugger, nothing more, nothing less. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, pale gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of sweet lemon and 7up. Taste is light sweet. Fake lemon juice mixed with tonic water. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a very abrupt finish. Meh, interesting but kinda crappy even for the "shandy" style.

Bottle. Lemon-lime soda and barley malt aroma. Pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet lemon-lime and light malt flavor. Not bad. Patrickctenchi (6812) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Slightly hazed light yellow...quick white head.
Strong sliced lemon scent.
Sweet grain malt, lemonade taste.
Light and bright.
Not bad at all. kmlen87 (24) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Good summer beer. If you like labatt its a good switch up from the regular stuff. Vilsack1987 has absolutely no idea what he?s talking about. vilsack1987 (24) - - JUN 20, 2014
Muggy colored beer with a lemon after taste. Nothing special about it good for summer drinking
