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.

A: Pours a hazy darker lemon yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some straw yellow + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film that covers about 75% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grainy malts with some sweet artificial lemon and just a hint of spices.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy malts that have a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of artificial sweet lemon (like that in powdered lemonade mix) and just a hint of herbal/spicy hops in the finish. Minimal amounts of bitterness which fades very quickly.
M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation. Slightly crisp.
O: The lemonade/lemon part of this shandy is just too artificial smelling and tasting. Easy to drink and with a low ABV, just not a beer that I want to have more than one of...
