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.

On-tap 6/23/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy light yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lemons, light caramelized malts but not much else.

T: The taste starts out with a sweet lemon flavors up front. Then there’s some mild breadiness from a thin malt character. There’s no distinguishable hops presence as you would expect, but a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, it’s pretty decent for the type of beer that it is made to be.

Another Shock Top offering - this one is Lemon Shandy just in time for Summer. A slight lemon flavor that mixes quite well with the Belgian wheat to actually make a refreshing brew.

The Belgian wheat's are always cloudy, but this one was very bright and very yellow, on the down side the head is small, no lacing and no staying power. You can definitely smell the lemon and it mixes well with the odor of wheat that I like so much. It refreshing and crisp in the mouth, but mostly watery (like you would expect from a lemonade - so it's sorta hard to hold it against them.) Anyway, it's a good Shock Top - they guys specialize with the fruit/vegetable brews and do a good job at it.
