look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- pours a blonde-straw color with a small fizzy white head that retains decently, before settling completely

S- lemonade, wheat, toasted malt with some grassy hop aroma

T- slightly tart lemonade flavor up front mixes with a sweet malty base with a hint of grassy hops on a dry finish

M- medium/light body with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a dry and crisp finish, high drinkability

O- it's an easy drinking beer that will only appeal to most on hot summer days, which is what it was intended for. For that, I'll probably drink a few this summer

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (best by October: P0934052633E)

A: Blonde yellow that is transparent. A bit of a frothy head on a good pour that rapidly vanishes.

S: Smells slightly citrusy, but more like the pith part, with some Helles in there. However, when I added the rest of the bottle on a hearty pour it smelled like lemon zest (or that little mist you get when you scratch the surface). That fades to a nice mellow citrus flavor.

T: Great mix of beer and lemons (lemonade). It is a Helles lager base, with a nice lemon twist in there. Drinks well and is a nice blend, without it seeming like a fruit drink that happens to be beer. It is like a beer version of half-and-half.

M: Not a lot of carbonation, it drinks a bit like lemonade.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Clean straw golden with sudsy carbonation. Foam is ok.

Smell: Very mild lemon soap. Refreshing overall.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sweet lemon flavor with a heavy corn malt backbone. Mouthfeel starts thin but there is definitely some moderate carbonation. Definitely too cloying in the finish.

Overally: A so-so shandy.
