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.
