Cracked open at a summer cook out, figured the perfect situation. I see I am in the minority as I found this one to be VERY tasty.
A-Hazy golden straw yellow with a very thin white head that vanishes to nothing. Disappointing for the fact that it does not resemble beer.
S-Sweet and tangy lemon and lime zest with a touch of grassy hops and a bit of biscuit malt. Nothing over the top here but it nice.
T-Punch of lemon zest up front with an augmenting dash of lime in the back. Biscuit malt adds a balance of sweetness with a light touch of grassy hops and a subtle hint of honey.
M-Light bodied but not thin. Sharp, crisp and refreshing. This one comes off exactly like I would expect.
D-Come on people this is suppose to be a Shandy--which is a beer/lemonade mixed drink. This one has the lemon/lime zing up front with a light, sweet biscuit malt chaser. I could do without the 7% ABV though. Make this a 4-5% easy drinker and this one could be the ultimate summertime BBQ accompaniment!

I let my buddy help me review this because he loves some good summer beers. He says he's pissed they don't distribute in our area. Says it's the best summer beer he's ever had. Taste is lemony and almost like a 7-up. Really easy to drink. I could see us drinking 3 or 4 bombers on a hot summer day. Makes us wish we lived in Cleveland. This is one good beer. Maybe it doesn't taste like beer, but who cares. The taste is great and at 7.2% we could throw a bunch back and be feeling real good.
I wish I had more to try from hoppin frog. Gonna snag some up next time I'm in the area!
