Great Summer beer. Lemon zest is strong but not over powering. Goes down smooth and doesn't leave a weird after taste like lots of lemon beers do.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Look: Golden with slight orange tint.
Smell: Not much as far as beer goes, but very citrus/lemon smell.
Taste: Like lemonade and beer mixed together, which is probably what the brewer was aiming for.
Overall: This beer is so different than the beer I usually drink but I actually like it. I wouldn't want to drink this all the time but if I was sitting on my front porch in the shade after mowing my yard I think I would love this.

This is a really tasty beer

-Crisp, clear golden lager appearance
-Not a lot in the way of aroma, a bit of lemon and bready malt
-Tastes great. Excellent integration of the lemon flavor with the base beer. I don't know if the base beer here is their standard helles, but if it is, I want some
-As full bodied as you could hope for a beer of this style. It is a bit sticky, but that is to be expected to a degree

Overall: Maybe a bit too sweet, but overall I can't complain too much. Tasty, tasty stuff

Very good for a macro masquerading as a craft beer. This beer is meant to resemble a raddler (sparkling lemonade and beer), and the lemon notes are definitely at the forefront. This beer tastes about 70/30 beer to lemonade but isn't quite as sweet as brews like Lienenkugels. Overall, I think this beer is really well balanced. It's super refreshing and drinkable but more of a complex, lemon rind flavor than pure lemon sweetness.

It has a taste of lemon rhine. Not the greatest I have ever had but not awful. Worth a try.

Now I know this isn't the most prestigious beer in the world but it definitely deserves a try and more!
Just so you know what to expect, it tastes of beer and lemons/lemonade. The lemon/lemonade factor comes in very strong, it almost tastes as if it's half lemonade half beer. It's definitely a summer beer and it's definitely what I'll be drinking again once summer comes back around. Definitely try it, there's nothing better to taste after a long hot day, TRUST ME! It's one of the best beers I've ever tasted and I've tasted many micro brews.

This, right now, is my favorite summer beer. Not too sweet or fruity, but nice enough to sit in the hot sun by the pool.

Very similar to Leinenkugel Summer Shandy, but I wouldn't say it's quite as good.
