This beer is about a medium gold color, bright but slightly hazy. A pure white cap of head rises to just under a finger and falls quickly. A wisp of head remains in the middle and a bit clings to the sides. A modicum of spotty lacing is left behind.
For the style, the smell isn't bad. Lemon is sturdy but doesn't overshadow everything else, not that there's a whole lot more. A bit of pale malts with a grainy overtone sit over some dusty notes, and the sweetness isn't too strong.
The taste is that of grains-heavy lemon soda. Sure, there's some malt, but the overall beer character is quite weak.
The body's actually almost medium but ultimately this is still pretty refreshing. Crispness doesn't bite too hard. It leans a little more toward going thin than the more common slick or cloying feel.

On tap at the Genesee Brew House in Rochester, NY.

I didn't hate this one, which is a miracle in and of itself.

Pours a slightly hazy summery yellow, with a big, 1.5 inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells like lemonade, grassy hops, and sweet malt. Smells sweet.

When colder, the lemonade doesn't come out as strongly, so you get more of the lager taste- grassy hops and sweet malt. Once it warms up, the lemonade aspect of this shandy/radler becomes more apparent. Sweet but tart lemon dominates. Actually quite refreshing.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel, very drinkable.

This one was surprisingly pretty good. Would I buy bunch of it? No. Am I happy I tried it? Very much so.

There is no reason to avoid this lemon flavored lager. Mild fruit tones over a good lager base. This is a good try to see if you like this style. Refreshing, get it cold. Head will be heavy unless drawn very cold. Slightly cloudy in appearance, nice color.

Tried this beer the day it was rolled out. It was poured from a fresh growler chilled. The nose is mostly lemony citrus with hints of beer in there, minimal/no hops to speak of. The appearance was straw colored with moderate head retention. Not being a fan of the fruit/hybrid beers, I was skeptical. The mouthfeel is crisp and zesty lemon with some malt. It was not that sweet and was quite refreshing. The finish was very clean and not overly lemony. Overall, it was actually not too bad and I would probably have again if the situation was right (surprisingly).

12 ounce twist-off bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, light yellow-hued body with a medium-sized, airy, white head. Very modest lacing.

Smell: Hey, is that Crystal Light I smell?

Taste: Artificial lemon additive with an artificial sweetness kick to it. There's a hint of a lager base there. Somewhere. Somewhere down there.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Soda-like carbonation, a bit sharp for me.

Overall: Here's where the Dundee Brewing Company plumbs down into the deepest recesses of their creativity and come up with:

Lemon Flavoring.
