3.43/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner glass.

A: Pours to a hazy and yellow color. Not much head.

S: A noticeable hit of lemons. A beer smell is lingering behind the lemons but the lemon dominates.

T: I enjoyed the taste. My friends and I joke that this is the Arnold Palmer of beers. It has a straight-forward taste of lemonade and is accompanied by beer. The lemonade dominates the taste.

M: Crisp and refreshing. Fairly carbonated.

Overall this is a beer that I grab on a hot summer day. It goes down easy and really satisfies your thirst. My only complaint is that it is a bit too sweet. Drinkers who do not like flavored beers should avoid this.

3.09/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The appearance is not impressive, but not bad either. The head, never much, dissipates into near nothingness extremely fast, leaving a cloudy dark yellow.

It smells very nice, though not too strong. Unsurprisingly, the citrus scent from the lemon is evident immediately, mixing well with a slight alcohol nose. It actually sort of reminds me of lemon tea. A faint hint of spiciness.

Very tingly beer, reminding me of soda in how initially tingly we're talking. It smells like it tastes. Not strong, but nice. Very, very citrusy, so the six pack box wasn't lying when it told me this stuff was made with lemonade. It never really tastes much "like beer" to me, though, until I hit the aftertaste, which might actually be my favorite part of drinking this beer. It's got a very, very nice aftertaste. The lemon and alcohol tastes finally mix very well at that point. Before that, the lemon is more dominant.

Overall, an okay light beer. Without the lemonade background in its making, this would be very mediocre. As is, it's good enough past mediocre to be okay. I like it.
