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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dingy golden-yellow, mostly murky and hazy with a thin, wispy white head that fizzles away until nothing but a thin ring is left around the very edge of the beer. Aroma consists of some lemon zest and slightly tart lemon juice with a faint grainy and wheat-like underbody. Not much really going on in the aroma, aside from the lemon. Lemon smells kind of artificial, but is more integrated into the beer rather than standalone (see: Lenie's Summer Shandy). Hops provide an extremely vague musky aroma, but then again - that may not even be from the hops. Who knows.

Thin bodied and highly carbonated, pretty much to be expected here. The taste contains a helping of grains and malts, mostly masked by a sweet lemon flavor. A little overdone, artificial, and slightly "off", however I still do prefer the taste of this to Summer Shandy. Lightly tart and puckering that turns into a dying sweetness, and believe me - it dies fast. The aftertaste is almost nonexistent, but contains very faint lemon and grain notes. Hops are seemingly missing on the palate, unless they're responsible for that slight twinge I'm picking up - can't tell if it's from the hops or just the carbonation.

Not the worse lemon beer out there, but I'm sure it's leagues away from being the best, too. I'd grab this before a Summer Shandy, but that's not really saying too much.

Sampled tonight on 4/3/14, though it has been about 2 years since I had one. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a super thin white head. No lacing was seen to speak of.. The aroma is of wheat and a light citrus. The taste is of wheat with lemonade and lemon zest. Has a slight tangy aftertaste as would be expected. Goes down easy and would be good on a hot summer's day..
