From the pint can marked 1284-14:39. Sampled on May 25, 2014.

It pours a basic pale yellow with a quick lasting white fizzy head. Yup, it looks like a beer.

The aroma is light and fruity with scads of apple, pear and watermelon. The malts and hops are more in the background.

Light and refreshing body.

The taste if more entrenched on the fruit character than anything else. Oh yes if you really look for it you find some biscuit malts and clean hops but the juicy fruitiness takes center stage for sure.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

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
