Picked this one up as part of a mix-a-six.
I didn't know what to think about Labatt delving into their own demonstration of craft concoctions; however, I was not completely disappointed by their take on a shandy.
A: Darker body than what I expected. Definitely carbonated, not much of a head formed in my pint glass.
S: A slight lemon-essence comes from the frothy head with a minute hop profile. Otherwise, it smells like a cheap lager.
T: The lemon zest that we probably all would like to expect is definitely there. Very small hop profile.
M: Definitely easy to drink and tangy on the palate.
O: I'd much rather have other versions of shandy than this one. I am willing to bet that if this bottle was packaged and labeled differently, my idea of this beer would be different. It's not very aesthetic or marketed towards the beach-going, sun-worshiping, pool-party goers.

Bought as part of a case of Labatt Brewers Collection Summer beers from Southtown Beverages on 4/26/13. Case price $ 10.99.
poured from a 11.5 oz bottle into a glass tumbler, served at fridge temp.
appearance: pale gold, one finger white head, scant lacing.
aroma: pale malty with a good amount of lemon.
mouthfeel: decent, just shy of full.
taste: pale malt and artificial lemon.
notes: the artificial lemon is offputting.

Picked this up for a dollar at the House of 1,000 beers.
A - bright golden yellow with a surprising bit of head that sticks around for a while. I get about 14 of head.
S - Typical Shandy it's like light beer meets lemonade with spritz lemon zest and some underlining hops.
T - Not too off putting it pretty much taste like a club soda with a twist of lime. Maybe some hops and some underlining skunk. Not that great
M - Light, champagne like with a nice bit of body for a light beer.
Overall I have had better Shandy and this makes the Leinenkugel version look like craft gold. Avoid if you can even for a dollar.

Last of the Labatt select variety pack:
Poured into a standard pint glass, color is straw with an off white head that dissipates pretty quickly, a bit of lacing.
Smell is lemon zest nearing concentrate strength, not bad, no malt notes - reminds me of lemon lime soda.
Taste has more malt backing than the smell, defintely more lemon zest and maybe a hint of hop flavoring - really almost tastes more like soda.
Mouthfeel is carbonated well, not excessive as some of the soda pretense would suggest.
Overall, actually tastes like a really light ale mixed with sprite with a touch of lemon concentrate. I'd rather do this on my own than have it pre packaged.
