Leinenkugel Summer Shandy pours to a cloudy yellow/gold color with very little foam. The nose of this beer is unmistakably lemony, with the scent of cereal grains in the background.
This summer brew is lemony more than anything, with a taste that reminds me of lemon zest along with the faint taste of wheat malt in the background. Summer Shandy leans toward the sweet side end of the spectrum, but not by much. There are 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's Summer Shandy 6pk bottles $8.99(OH)
12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. Freshness date painted on bottle neck.
Pours a hazy yellow color. A two finger white head that fizzles away pretty quickly. Leaving little to no lacing.
The aroma is wheaty, and lots of lemons with a touch of honey. The lemon smell is clean, doesn't smell fake or pectin based.
Taste follows the nose. A light wheaty taste, followed by a splash of lemons with a light touch of honey. Good and refreshing.
Mouth feel is light but not watery. Crisp, well carbonated and a light lemon tang will stick around for a while. Not too dry and not a tad bit bitter.
Overall not bad, just not my type of beer. Its crisp, clean and refreshing and i bet better on a hot summer day. However its mid April, not summer and this is already released? Whats next Oktoberfest in August? Anyway back on point, Hot day or not i would rather have a traditional Hefe over this any day.
