Thanks again to my buddy Pete for breaking into a six pack of this that he had picked up to drink while mowing his lawn. Review is from notes taken on 6/10/2012 and poured from the bottle to a pint glass.
Appearance: Pour is a crisp, light straw yellow in color; tremendous clarity with decent carbonation; starts with a short 1/4 inch head that is slightly off-white -- eventually fades to nothing but a thin island of skim laying on top.
Smell: Tons of citrus -- lemony and a little sugary/saccharine. About half-way through the drink, I determine that it's really a lot like Mikes Hard Lemonade with a bit more a beer base instead of the saccharine mess Mike's is; bit of a bitter happiness makes an appearance.
Taste/overall: Lemonade meets lager, with some saccharine stirred in for sweetness; now granted, I know this doesn't sound all that exciting, but for what the beer is, it works. I would be more than happy so spend four hours on a hot saturday afternoon mowing a lawn, just so long as I had a six pack of this to plow through.
