Opaque maize color like a glass of dark honey. Head quickly fritters and fizzles away. Smells like Arizona lemon iced tea. Tastes like honey and shandy. I'm not picking up any ginger.
Certainly better than most lemonade beer concoctions. As of now I'm' not sure the shandy bar has been set high enough to make that a safe or bold statement.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a quite hazy orange-peach color with a billowy just off white head. The head dissipates over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is quite heavy of ginger with it clearly dominating the smell. With the strong ginger, is a lighter lemonade smell and some aromas of a light honey smell as well.
Taste - The taste begins with a mix of a malty grainy taste mixed with lots of sweeter lemon tastes. Quickly ginger comes to the tongue adding an almost ginger ale type taste to the brew. In the end the ginger flavors grow stronger along with the lemonade, producing a spicy ginger and lemonade flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is actually slightly thicker then I would have expected for a shandy of only 4.4 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. The higher carbonation is great for all the spicy ginger flavors, but the body would possibly be more refreshing if slightly thinner. The thicker body was actually fairly decent overall though as it did really allow all the ginger flavors to linger on the tongue.
Overall- A rather nice take on a shandy. If you are looking for something sweeter, more lemonade and ginger ale like then this is a good go to. Nicely done for the style.

A: Pours a very cloudy golden orange color with a fingers worth of head that dies down to nothing within minutes
S: Lots of lemon and honey sweetness along with wheat, light spicy ginger, and yeast
T: Starts off with lemon, honey, ginger, and wheat and slowly lingers to more of the ginger and sweetness in the finish
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Chalky and yeasty
O: The ginger and honey add a nice dimension to the original lemon shandy. They add a light spiciness and a touch more sweetness (the lemon shandy is already quite sweet) that certainly make it interesting. Good if you like shandies, so pick some up if they're for you
