This fruit beer poured a cloudy yellow colour with a bright white, foamy head. Scents include light corn, citrus and a little yeast. First swig was quite a shock to the palate. Flavours of lemon citrus and malt. Finish was lemony with a sweet finish. Like beer and lemonade mixed together. darr (24) - - NOV 15, 2014
Arome citroné qui laisse place à une légère mousse qui se dissipe rapidememt pour finalement disparaître complètement. Bière très sucrée qui ne goûte pas la bière. Très ordinaire. À éviter! TequilaReader (50) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
No aroma at all, golden, clear, frothy, light sweetness, tastes like slightly bubbly watered-down lemonade, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, Rmorris007 (50) - - SEP 30, 2014
So I know I’m going against everyone else’s reviews about this beer. But my experience with it was a lot different. I had it several times with all you can eat crawfish and wow... very very good pairing. The lemon neutralized the spiciness of the crawfish and I was able to eat about 10 pound and threw back about ten lemon shandys... very good pairing slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"Non-offensive, though it was obviously mass produced. With it’s prominent lemonade aroma and flavor, it tasted more like a hard lemonade or wine cooler than a beer. any wit characteristics are long gone. that said, it’s got it’s place as a summer grilling beer. not good, but not bad. :)"

Can from the LCBO. For my review of this beverage, I would first like to dissect its ingredients list. First, I have to ask: Why does there need to be an ingredients list? Is this were a proper all-natural shandy, the ingredients would be simple: beer and lemonade. But instead, there are 8 ingredients listed, several of which I can’t pronounce and/or don’t know what they are. The first two are "Beer" and "Ale" - wait, aren’t they the same thing? What’s going on here that they need to be listed seperately? Next up is "Sugar" - I know what that is, but have to wonder how much if it was used in order for it to be listed so high up on the list. "Citric Acid" - I guess that will maybe balance the sugar? "Natural Lemonade Flavour" - is this even a thing? Why not just lemon juice? "Acacia Gum" - last I checked this was a thickening agent. So why is it in a liquid? "Modified Coconut Oil (Medium Chain Triglycerides)" - shit’s starting to get a bit weird now. "Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate" - right, that doesn’t sound like something I want to be putting into my body. Oh, I need to drink it now? Well, it doesn’t actually look that bad - nice hazy light gold body, small and tight white head. But the aroma - my god, it’s like someone doused rubber tires with lemon dishwashing liquid and nail polish remover and then lit them on fire. Just horrendous. The flavour is mercifully a bit better, but the "natural" lemon flavour still has a strong artificial/chemical character to it. Barely a quarter of the way into the glass and it starts to remind me of Neo Citran. And then it’s down the drain with the rest of this truly awful "beer"... rondphoto (4455) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY -- Cloudy light amber with a heavy white head, dots of lace. Aroma of lemon. Taste is lemonade with a bit of alcohol edge. So little malt and hops, it hardly qualifies as a beer. My non-drinking wife says she can drink it, which is the worst possible accolade.

Pours a cloudy gold color with hardly any head. Smell of lemon, bread, and hops. Taste like Budweiser with lemonade added. Not to thrilled with it. Shock Top has given me more pleasant offerings in the past, but this one does not. I wouldn’t say I want my 1.69 back, but definitely a one time experience. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Alright, folks, I’m a bicyclist and I know the origin of shandy - lemonade and beer to boost TDF riders. So... this isn’t a bad example of that summer brew, but it needs a stronger and more capable beer base, like the Europeans produce (generally). Cousin_Larry (895) - - SEP 3, 2014
OK, the lemon flavor is so overpowering it seems artificial. But c’mon Ratebeerians, this isn’t a 10th percentile beer. Sure, its target market is not beer connisseurs, but this is decent for what it is - a light sweet summer drink. I don’t love it but don’t hate it either.
