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.

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.
