3.7/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: Pours hazy yellow with a thin-head. Leaves little lacing on the sides of the glass.
S: The lemon is easily picked out among the very sweet tones.
T: Not really much to say. Tart but sweet lemon washes over the palate and is quite smooth. You can tell it's real and not artificial.
M: Medium-light bodied and goes down very well. Almost too session-able.
O: In the summer this is always my go-to. It may not be anything super special, but its freakin' delicious and is perfect for a hot summers day. I prefer this greatly over Lienenkugel's shandy because you can tell it is real. After the beer is brewed, it tastes like Lienenkugel just dumped in some lemonade. The shandy/radler style is not widely appreciated but it's tasty and good nonetheless. If you're looking to try a good shandy, get this one. It is by far the best on the market.

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.
