This brew pours a nice gold color with a 1/2" white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is great. It has an awesome lemonade scent that is tamer and less tart than most hard lemonades. The taste is perfect. It has a very smooth and sweet lemonade flavor. It is hard lemonade blended with light lager to give it a sweet malt taste that dilutes the tart lemon flavor. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied brew with good carbonation. This is an awesome drinking brew. It goes down like country time lemonade and it refreshes. This is the best hard lemonade I've ever had. I guess it's the malts that make it so damn easy drinking.

Poured a light straw hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was little retention and no lacing.

The smell consisted of an artificial Countrytime Lemonade type aroma with a subtle malted grain aroma.

The taste was essentially a mix of powdered lemonade and light beer - a most horrible combination.

The mouthfeel was light with medium carbonation.

Overall a horrible drinking experience. Its not beer and its not hard lemonade, but their mutated offspring.

Served from a growler into a pint glass.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow gold. Decent carbonation, but little head.
Smell: A little malty and a little lemony, but it has a medicine quality to it.
Taste: Much like the smell, malty and lemony, with a dominating medicine quality.
Mouth feel: Pretty nice. There is a little bit of weight to the drink unlike a typical malt beverage. Low carbonation and evanescence may be due to the couple of days the beer has been in the growler.
Drinkability: Goes down pretty easy but not a great after taste.
Overall: I could see this being a good bridge beer to get non-beer drinkers away from pure lemon flavored malt beverages. But in reality, I don't see too many beer drinkers loving this beer, nor do I see many malt drinkers loving it. It was fun to try, but I doubt I will be getting more anytime soon.
