Pours a nearly clear deap straw into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. Shows a touch of haze and offers a thin white cap which shows brief retention. Light carbonation emanates from the bottom of the pour.

Strong lemon aroma through and through. Light malt character and mild hop character through some foam with a more simple lemon oil/pledge after the beer settles. Flavor is decent and not quite overwhelming in the lemon department though it is certainly well represented and more notable on the finish. Decent body for a style within a stlye, easy drinking and perhaps even robust for a Lemon Shandy given the ABV. Overall a bit sweet to have a few of and might actually do well over ice. Would prefer a more robust carbonation otherwise. Cheers..

Lots of sugar and lemon in the nose.
Less sugar in the taste but some lemon in there.
Very similar to summer shandy and I could see myself slamming a sizer of this in the heat of summer.
The taste dies off real quickly, no real after taste.
It should be good for summer.

12 ounce bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - This offering is golden in color with straw highlights. I got about an inch of white head the settles to a thin layer on top.

S - I get some overtly sweet lemon meringue and what smells like wheat, even though not is present.

T - The taste is sweet, reminds me of a lemon dum dum pop. It really tastes as advertised, lemon soda and helles beer.

M - Moderate with biting carbonation.

O - I thought this would be refreshing after mowing the lawn. It is decent. It is not hitting the spot as I'd hoped it would.
