3.6/5 rDev +14.6%
It is a cloudy sandy yellow color with a inch head that disappears very quickly.
It has a very lemony smell to it that is not overwhelming
It has a decent amount of lemon taste that is not overly powerful
Mouthfeel was little carbonated that didn't leave any bubbles remain on the tongue
Overall its a decent shandy if you are looking for a decent cheap one, there however better lemon shadys out there. #T6PP

I bought this on draft at local club on a whim, and the fact that it was $3 for a pint.
I was surprised at how perfect this beer was.
It tasted amazing and had the nicest cloudy unfiltered wheat beer coloring.
Just the perfect consistency all around.
And the sugar content wasn't too heavy either. I know a lot of summer beers like to load up on the sugars and fruit additives, but this one is just perfect from the keg.
Had it from a bottle later on in the night and it just didn't taste the same.
If you can find this on draft, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
It's just a very smooth drinkable beer and it really packs a punch in the flavor department. I tasted cardamom, orange peel and some other unique spices.
If I see this draft again it is my go to.

A- Poured a cloudy golden yellow. 2 finger head that dissipated rather quickly. Very little lacing left behind.
S- Smelled of lemonade. Not too artificial(a plus for me).
T- A nice refreshing lemonade type beer. Very crisp and clean. Not bitter or overpowering.
M- Not overly carbonated. Nice and smooth
O- So far the best "summer shandy" type that I've tried. Definitely sessionable. Will be going to pick up some more once summer rolls around.

my cousin wanted something new, so we got a 12 pack of this. it's alright. when i first tried it, it didn't do well for me and i ended up not drinking it. but the next day i wanted a buzz so i drank a few of these. it takes a while to get used to it.
the moment it hits your mouth it's like you're drinking water but it is quickly followed by a strange zap of lemon. it might be a bit too much lemon, in my opinion. after a while, though, like i said, it grows on you, but perhaps that is due to you drinking 4 of them and you think everything is great. i tried to find out the AC for it i believe it is around 4.5%.
if you don't want a strong beer but rather a crisp lemon taste with a little beer taste, get this. if not, i don't know.
