I'm not the biggest Narragansett fan overall, but the nostalgic feel of this beer, with a good lemony flavor is a good shandy choice for the summer.

16 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a minimal head that reduced to nothing quickly. It is a slightly hazy golden straw yellow with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Sweet lemonade and bready malts.

Taste: Lemonade sweetness mixed with bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: I really don't understand this Shandy craze around here. Pretty nice for the warmer weather, but the sweetness could be lowered a bit.

Poured from a Tall Boy into a cold pint.

Del's has been something I've been meaning to check out. I wish I had found it a little earlier, definitely makes a good summer session brew. Light, Lemony and very drinkable. I'm not really into the sweet stuff and although this brew isn't overly sweet, I'm not sure I could do it all day. Either way it was a nice change of pace and another quality offering from Narragansett.

16oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: golden colored with a very light haze. Rocky, fine-bubbled white head retains well. Small dots of lacing.

S: Del's frozen lemonade on the nose. Perfect balance of lemony, sweet, and tart. Maybe some subtle grains pulling through.

T: Sugary/tart Del's iced lemonade. Some bready graininess underneath. Maybe a touch of hollow hops. That's about it.

M: Light bodied. Perhaps some wheaty froth? Fine-bubbled, scrubbing carbonation. Very refreshing.

O: This will sell like hotcakes. Narragansett has been very smart with this series of beers. An iconic New England brewery teaming up with other iconic and beloved New England brands. It amplifies the reach and recognition of their brand, especially because they are using soft drinks, which obviously have a broader demographic. Genius. The Autocrat coffee milk stout was a good idea, but this will outsell it by leaps and bounds. The liquid itself is extraordinarily simple, but that's exactly what it should be. It lets the Del's lead and it stays refreshing and crushable. That's all it needed to do; stay true to concept and don't eff it up. This is a gold mine.
