A- clear golden amber with a thin fizzy quickly disappearing off white head! Expected though because of the citrus.
S- toasted grains, a bit of grassy hops, and a touch of lemon candy
T- nice lemony tartness throughout balanced by malt sweetness. Hop flavor is there but lacks bitterness. Not soapy at all.
MF- seems a bit light for the "helles" base beer but that's ok I guess. Highly carbonated and lemony burp inducing. Slightly filmy on the palate.
D- shandies, radlers, etc easily my least favorite style. At least this one has a decent base beer beneath it.

Finally finishing up that 'ol summer mix pack...about halfway through summer.
Beer is completely translucent, dark yellow. A white head eventually turns to a thick ring, patchy cap, bits of lace.
Smell is lemony and bready, grainy. Maybe some bubblegum there. Reminds me of their Summer Ale minus spices. Quite simple as expected but not unpleasant, decent strength.
Taste really brings the lemon - almost laughably lemonade-ish. Slightly puckering even. A kind of overall citrusy feel with some herbal notes. Lager graininess and some baked bread in the finish.
Decent bodied with medium-low carbonation. The initial lemonade blast followed by bready finish is well done.
Pretty much a lemonade beer, not much else going on, but that's the point I suppose. "It is what it is."
