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.

I wouldn't call this a beer to be honest. I think the lemon taste is good but was left wondering where the beer taste went. I would drink it again though.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Opaque light gold, similar to lemonade. Thin head that quickly disappears.

Smell: Not much, the smell is lost.

Taste: Saves the beer a bit. Sweet, lemonade. Not much "beer".

Mouthfeel: Smooth, well carbonated.

Overall: I am a fan of Shandys and this one fits the mold. Smooth and sweet. But not much "beer" and almost no aroma.
