Best by was notched at October on the label.

Poured out a nice gold color with fine carbonation and a thick, white head (4.0). Lemon and grass aroma, rather mild (3.25). Lemon drop flavor atop a mild cereal grain base; mildy tart and acidic (3.3). Medium body with a noticeable residual sugar feel; dry finish (3.25).

As a beer and lemonade combo, this is probably okay. As a go-to beer, many people will probably by-pass this as it just doesn't satisfy the taste buds like either a light summer beer or regular lemonade would by themselves. You get more of a slightly sour, past-its-prime skunky beer flavor more than anything else. I don't know. Why ruin a good malt beverage by adding lemonade to it? I don't get the appeal...

APPEARANCE: pours a clear golden color

TASTE: Of course this is Sam Adams version of Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. It tastes like beer with a nice touch of lemon flavor. If you are a Summer Shandy fan stick with it. If Summer Shandy doesn't have enough of a beer taste, go with Porch Rocker.

OVERALL: I enjoyed this beer. Good Summer beer. It's a good beach beer.
