Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy personifies the term "Summer Beer". This beer has a light golden cloudy appearance and nice white, but quickly diminishing, head. The light, crisp citrus aroma is immediately detectable before drinking.

It's flavor is a very authentic, crisp, and tart citrus flavor supported by a classic wheat beer mouthfeel. The aftertaste is very refreshing and quickly receding as not to overpower your mouth with it's lemony aftertaste.

This beer is best served ice-cold and on a hot summer day.

Serving type: bottle

Very good beer for warm weather. I really enjoy the lemon and beer combination in this recipe. An extremely light and crisp beer with just enough hops to make the flavor explode in your mouth. Very good beer to drink while eating at a barbeque with smoked meats.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: cloudy, hazy, light (slightly golden) yellow color, white head

Smell: lemon, citrus, grass, earthy

Taste: Sweet, citrus, lemon, vanilla, somewhat artificial flavors (doesn't seem authentic)

Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation that overpowers a lot of the flavors (but not necessarily a bad thing)

Overall: Decent for a hot summer day, but does not have any outstanding qualities or attributes

Serving type: bottle

This is probably my favorite summer beer. You can smell the lemon and citrus scents as soon as you get your nose near this beer. It tastes refreshing as soon as the beer touches your lips. Afterwards, you are left with a lemon taste in your mouth that is delicious.
