A-1/2 inch white head which receded rather quickly. Nice light golden color.

S-nice obvious hints of citrusy goodness

T-very fruity flavor yet not overpowering to my taste buds. Got a slight tart in the after taste

M- carbonation just right, tickles the tongue in a good way, watery feel

O- citrusy flavors are ok, as subtle as they were I think the beer would be better if they were taken down one more notch

I purchased this at Wegman's enjoyed chilled from the 12oz in a glass.

The color is crystal clear golden with thick white head that falls to a ring of small beads. The aroma has a slight citrus odor with sweet malt accent and light sprite-link aroma. The feel is decent yet still sweet with a moderate carbonation level stays sweet throughout with light acidity.

The flavor is more lemon soda than lager with a light lemonade-like sweet flavor with fizzy soda-like taste with mild malt flavor in the background with a slight yeast accent that accentuates the lemon soda sweetness toward the end giving more of a cooler-type flavor. This was not enjoyable as I expected. I have had other 'radler' type beer mixed bottles before that seemed like a better hybrid than this - I prefer something with more beer and less lemon soda in the taste.
