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: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Big white head, quickly dies above a very light hazy pale to washed out light honey golden colored ale.

A big sweet lemon aroma overpowers everything else that might be there.

A light sweet yet unsweetened lemon with light sour grains coming through in the taste.

A light bodied beer that finishes with a light dry aftertaste that has some lemon hanging on to it.

Yuk, seems like they have this super huge vat of Bud Light and siphon off a few thousand gallons add some flavoring and give it a shock top name, getting a little old already.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Appearance was hazy, yellow-tan, with a very small head that immediately disappeared and left zero lace.

Lemons on the smell. Maybe some malt but no hops.

Taste is struggling. It's like carbonated lemonade with a little bit of beer in it.

Watery and moderately carbonated. Might as well be lemonade.

I'd skip this one if I were you. It's a malternative at best, if not just carbonated lemonade with a little alcohol in it. I wouldn't call this one beer. Despite slick packaging and no doubt some fancy advertising, this is typical of the crap that budweiser is trying to pass off as craft beer in order to keep their market share from declining even more. This is not even beer, let alone craft.

I'm glad I was given a bottle of this, because if I had bought a six pack I would have had to dump five of them.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Looks the part, smells the part, but lemon La Perrier sparkling water has got more body and flavor than this. Thank god it was a sample. Not that leine summer shandy is my cup of tea but even that mops the floor with this, at least that tastes like it has malt in it.
