Served on-tap at Texas Arizona in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a rather cloudy pale lemon yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some bright yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of lemon citrus and adjunct grainy malt sweetness. This beer smells like the lemonade that is used in the making of it.
T: The beer is slightly sweet with a fairly moderate flavor of lemonade over a lighter flavor of grainy adjunct malts and just a touch of grassy hops. Minimal amounts of bitterness are noted.
M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.
O: Extremely easy to drink and refreshing, perfect for enjoying out in the sun of a really hot summer day.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
