Another grab at market share and shelf space by the boston beer company in the form of the growing Shandy style. *sigh*

Super hazed dull yellow color with a thin head even with an aggressive pour. Smells like the garnish bin behind a bar. Left out sour lemons. Hint of coriander and white peppercorn.

Fluffy mouthfeel with vigorous carbonation. Tart lemon, whisp of wheat, spicy finish. Like a spicier Summer shandy by leinenkugel but without any real beer taste and less body. Almost tastes like a mikes hard lemonade to be honest but with the addition of wheat. Sad attempt at a simple style. Hurts your throat with vigorous carbonation and spice rather than refresh your thirst.

This beer poured with a nice head, which dissipated quickly; it has a nice cloudy, natural appearance. I have had a number of different shandys before and have always enjoyed them. Unfortunately, this beer was very disappointing. The lemon flavor comes across as very artificial. The lemon aftertaste is highly unpleasant and almost medicinal. The most accurate description I can give is that it tastes like Pine Sol smells.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Never make a mixed-sixer whilst buzzed...you'll only come home with a bottle of shandy... This stuff pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises Country Time lemonade powder, light lemon peel, and a touch of pine sap. Smells sweet, lemony, and artifical, in other words. The taste takes things further down the hill, bringing that artificality to the fore. Think Lemon Pledge with a twist of sweetness. "Ugh!" is right. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly slick feel. Overall, this stuff just didn't do anything positive for me. I should pay it back, somehow...
