3.31/5 rDev -1.8%
Appearance: bright yellow in color, 1/4 inch head, cloudy, moderate carbonation
Smell: lemonade and light ginger
Taste: lemonade and ginger
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and carbonation, sweet with spiciness.
Overall: An ok to above average shandy. I get lemonade and distinct ginger, but not much beer taste. Not bad, but I think there are better shandies out there.

It actually looks like a hazy white ale, bright yellow hazed sunshine summery shandy. Head forms nice bright white intricate lacing I can't complain about appearance, I have passed this stuff up since it was released, it showed up at my local, but I'd figure I would try now. Aroma bright lemon peel, bitter pith, bready notes hints of yeast additions. Flavor biscuit malt at the base with a big rounded sweetness, juicy lemon meringue creamy textures, balanced spritzy lemon lime peel additions almost like a witbier spiked with Sprite. I has you burping up the lemon peel notes after a few sips, actually much less offensive than I was expecting. Refreshing summer style ale, somebody had to compete with the success that Leinenkugel's has had with their summer shandy cans. As I inspect the label I keep thinking this looks like it has Sam Adams written all over it, the fine print reveals that it's brewed by Boston Beer Company marketed by a company out of Burlington, VT. I expect the same from the Angry Orchard offerings, just by looking at the packaging. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth refreshing summery offering that is being sold year round, I'm not sure how often I plan to partake but it's honestly pretty solid for what it is. I like the lower abv, at 4.4% abv this would be easy to imbibe a couple especially if I take my acid reflux meds, that's the only mouthfeel gripe I have is the acidity...carbonation is dead on carries it well really not cloying to me at all. Overall if you enjoy this type of beverage after cutting the grass, it's definitely refreshing for the warmer months.

It certainly looks the part, a lemon soda-colored brew with some fizziness but a substantial and lasting head as opposed to a soda. It's not large, but it has staying power and leaves more than moderate lacing.
It's got some beer character to it while being as refreshing as the style requires. It does have a light caramel-type malt and a ghost of pine. Otherwise, it's all lemon. There's an earthy sort of backbone that doesn't get heavy. I really don't get anything artificial here; just some juicy lemon, tart and zesty, a light peppery note, and a definite note of lemon peel itself, mildly bitter. They did what they set out to do, ending up with a simple but very nice little shandy.
It's light-bodied but almost medium, still crisp without being overly effervescent, nicely carbonated, soda-like as most of the style but with more body. Despite that, it doesn't lose its refreshing nature at all.

I had this on tap at Rivers in Chicago. It is a great summer time chic beer. Like most other Shandies and the other summer ales, very fruity and tart. The beer also has a distinct smoothness, perfect after a beach day,Paired well with lobster roll, and grilled chix salad
Great ice cold , but don't let it get warm! Well worth giving it a try if your looking for a refreshing ,light, crisp beer
