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 cant pronounce and/or dont know what they are. The first two are "Beer" and "Ale" - wait, arent they the same thing? Whats 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)" - shits starting to get a bit weird now. "Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate" - right, that doesnt sound like something I want to be putting into my body. Oh, I need to drink it now? Well, it doesnt actually look that bad - nice hazy light gold body, small and tight white head. But the aroma - my god, its 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 its down the drain with the rest of this truly awful "beer"...

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. Not recommended

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 wouldnt say I want my 1.69 back, but definitely a one time experience.

Alright, folks, Im a bicyclist and I know the origin of shandy - lemonade and beer to boost TDF riders. So... this isnt a bad example of that summer brew, but it needs a stronger and more capable beer base, like the Europeans produce (generally).

OK, the lemon flavor is so overpowering it seems artificial. But cmon Ratebeerians, this isnt 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 dont love it but dont hate it either.

Cloudy yellowish color, no head, moderate carbonation a synthetic lemon aroma. Tastes like lemon soda with a watery feel and a metallic chemically finish. Couldnt bring myself to have a second one.

Cloudy pee, watery lemonish soda pop. This is a good beer to give your teenage to get them interested in alcohol.
