Drank straight from bottle so no comment on appearance.
Smells like copper and lemons. Hint of strong wheat at deeper whiff. Sweet, lemony, coppery wheat. That's it.
Taste - lemony and slightly bitter. A great shandy but on the wrong night this brew can be downright nasty. I just got done mowing the lawn and this beer is supreme. Quenches thirst like a Gatorade. If you tip it straight back and guzzle you'll bypass some of the beer bitterness and get a nice mix of fresh lemonade and lager. Low carbonation but just enough to tickle the tongue. Very refreshing.
Mouthfeel is watery and light. Just as it should be for a shandy. "Refreshing" will go into this category so it's the highest rated.
All in all, refreshing is the key word for this beer. Absolutely wonderful for hot, sticky summer days.
Nice work leinenkugels!

I had to try it after seeing commercials on it and people talk about how good it is. So I got a 12 pack at the store for $14 so I thought by that it would be good. Its a Lemonade flavored light beer but very disappointing. I thought it would taste like beer and Lemonade mixed but instead it tastes mainly of Lemonade with a slight hint of beer taste. I have tried other flavored beers such as Samuel Adams Blueberry beer and its right on. Its equal alcohol and blueberry taste. I will stick to plain, non flavored light beer. I recommend this beer to anyone who doesn't like the beer taste yet wants to drink a beer. I would drink this again as long as its free but I won't buy this again.
