Leinenkugel Summer Shandy is a fruity beer that pours to a cloudy yellow/gold color with a head of foam that is thin and is comprised of very small, tightly packed bubbles, giving the beer a creamy mouth feel. This beer has a nose that is lemony with the scent of cereal grains in the background.

This beer offers exactly the taste one would expect based on the aroma, with flavors of lemon and more lemon and the faint taste of wheat in the background. This beer is mostly sweet, but it also has some sour notes and the slight taste of honey blended with the citrus. There is little or no discernable hop character to this product.

Leinenkugel Summer Shandy tastes quite a bit like lemonade- a quality that would normally convince me to lower my rating. But there are some qualities that make Leinenkugel Summer Shandy different from many other fruit beers and make it more enjoyable. First, the fruit is not syrupy or excessively sweet. The taste of lemon is obvious, but this beer doesn't taste like Kool- Aid or any other sugary drink. Second, it still has characteristics of beer, even though the lemon taste dominates. It's a pretty good tasting beer and it does make a good choice for a hot summer day.
