Single bottle from a craft beer "pick six" setup poured into a flute. Not my preferred beer style but the completist (or obsessive) in me wanted to try every offering in the current Sam Adams summer pack and rumor has it that this tastes at least somewhat like a real beer as opposed to some limp dick 30% beer 70% juice blend (sorry, that's a cooler, not a beer). A darker than expected yellow-orange gold rather like ginger ale, with an initially large frothy white had that dissipates almost instantly. The aroma is not bad (!), some of the rich cereal notes one expects in a Helles, the expected lemon rind and oil and even a faint whiff of grassy noble hops. On the palate the lemon is tastefully done, not overwhelming the light malts, and there is also a subtle candied ginger vibe, and the hops seem to combine with the fruit to yield a sweet lemongrass tea effect. Not particularly sour. A bit heftier than expected in terms of body, accompanied by a pleasingly moderate degree of carbonation (although one's biased expectancies do yield a slight desire for more fizz). As mentioned, not a shandy guy but this is a nice revelation, even if I would not purposely seek out this brew again. Its a candy beer but one with some grain to shore it up.
