Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Lemon Shandy is a unique take on the classic Shandy that is distinctly Shock Top.

Brewed with two row and six row malted barley and five different types of hops, this Belgian-Style Wheat Ale is then combined with citrus peels, coriander, natural lemonade flavor and a hint of sugar for a subtle sweetness. The end result is an incredibly refreshing, crisp and smooth beer that hits the spot.

Wisconsin

2.68/5  rDev -5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours hazed yellow with a very thin head, looks like some fuzz, despite following the pouring suggestion on the label. Minimal lacing sticks.

The taste is of sugar-coated lemon. Sweet upfront, without much of the tartness associated with lemonade. Dry yeast and a hint of vague spicing balance out the sweetness somewhat. The finish is rather abrupt.

The feel is between fizzy and crisp. It does go down easily enough, I suppose.

Something about it just misses the mark of being a true shandy. Would be easy enough to drink on a hot day, but so would lemonade. Despite a slight "artificial sweetness" to it it's not "inoffensive", but it is weak, even for a low abv shandy. A rather shallow brew.

2.89/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of lemon syrup with quite a bit of residual sugars is closer to juice than beer. Taste is a mix between some wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and some lemon syrup notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Easy drinking wheat beer with a tad too much sugar thought.

Serving type: can
