thanks blake!!! enjoyed from a beer hunter summer glass.

a - cracked the can, brew poured a cloudy by transparent yellow orange with a thin fizzy head that fizzed away quick...like a soda.

s - wow, smells like fresh squeezed lemonade with some earthy malt in the background.

t/m - yep, tastes like lemonade. not the store bought or with the powder, the kind you get at the fair with the lemon floating around in it and the pits in it and all that lemon stuff floating around...that kind of lemonade. but since it is a beer and has the fizziness and all that, it kind of comes across as lemonade soda.

o - overall, a bit weird...certainly different. very glad to have a taste, but not something i would want more than a can of, unless perhaps to pour it for friends and say "yeah, isnt' that crazy? it tastes like lemonade...i know."

4.05/5  rDev +21.6%

Appearance: pale yellow in color, 1 inch head, clear, high carbonation

Smell: lemonade and light ginger

Taste: lemonade and light pilsner malt

Mouthfeel: light bodied, high carbonation, sweet

Overall: An excellent shandy. One's I have had in the past are either too bitter or focus a bit too much on either part. The Del's lemonade is the star of the show and the flavor bursts through. However, the Gansett lager works well with this and you can taste it in the background. The combo works well. I think this may be a new summer favorite.

3.35/5  rDev +0.6%

Appearance: Golden pale wheat color (yellow). Slightly high carbonation (fizzy). Initial 1" head dissipates within 30 seconds.

Smell: Lemons, faint biscuit

Taste: Lemons, sweet but not cloying, just enough biscuity malt to balance,tart.

Mouthfeel: Thin,above average carbonation, watery, slight puckering effect

Overall: As far as a Shandy goes I'd have to say it's far better than a I thought it would be and overall a fine example of the style. A good job was done balancing the sugary sweet Del's with the lager, a tightrope act that could have very easily been disastrous. Not something I could drink much of but one should prove very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Forgot to mention delicious Del's burps, seriously the belches taste exactly like Del's

Nice bright lemony nose. Tastes much more like the actual Del's Lemonade type lemon flavor than I expected... a little tart, nice hit of citrus. Overall, it's not my favorite summer offering but I'm sure I'll put back another can or two on a nice hot summer day.
