[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a clear golden straw yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished very quickly, down to a light scattered film with a small collar and had poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of citrus (lemon) right up front with a mild grain malt and a sweet yeast and had a hint of candi sugar.

The taste was very sweet and somewhat citrusy with a slight lemonade and sugar flavor running throughout. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow with a light lemony sugar taste fading away quickly.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a strong medium carbonation.

Overall I was not impressed at all with this brew, it was more like lemon flavored seltzer water than a beer...

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is strong of lemonade. Taste is the same, lots of lemons, a touch of tartness, refreshing. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a unique beer worth trying once, but I wouldn't want a steady diet of it.

Yellow color and heavy moderation. Heavy citrus aroma. Initially tastes like carbonated juice or soda. As it moves over the palate you're hit with sweet citrus beer. Really refreshing yet at the same time the carbonation can be overpowering. A great summer beer for those who like or don't mind a lot of carbonation.

A- pours a light gold, big head of foam, good lacing.

S- very much a lemonade aroma, kind of on the sweet side.

T- has a decent taste of semi sweet lemonade, a bit more sourness would be nice. I get a bit of a grainy flavour a well.A pretty simple brew that's not bad and somewhat refreshing.

M- light bodied, medium carbonation, it fits.

O- an interesting try at a Radler but not worthy, imho, of any revisits.
