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.

Tried at the end of the brewery tour in St Louis. Only one available I hadn't reviewed. Two finger bright white head on a cloudy but still bright golden body. Musty wheat, rice, hint of lemon citrus but very light. The flavor starts with rice, wheat ad grain with carbonated not so fresh lemonade rounding out the finish. Light body and high carbonation. Pretty gross beer. Worse than I would imagine lemonade being spiked with bud light.

Appearance - Pours hazy, but thin looking straw yellow with a white, 2 finger head. Average retention, results in very little lacing.

Smell - Decent aroma of wheat and lemon. That's the gist of it.

Taste - Wheat hits first, followed quickly by a moderate lemon sourness, leading the charge into a simple, quick finish. A faint lemon note lingers well into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Razor thin watery body, with almost zero carbonation.

Overall - Another substandard Shock Top brew. Not a bad flavor, but the lack of any kind of body leaves this beer tasting a bit like lemon water.
