16 oz can poured into a shaker pint glass. Best before Jun1013. Batch stamp F01140030
Appearance: Very cloudy / translucent light yellow beer with a bone white head that died down slowly over time to leave just a thick ring at the edge. Some initial lacing, but gone by about halfway through the beer.
Smell: Grainy, with a hint of lemonade to it.
Taste: Light, crisp. Very much like a light beer mixed with lemonade. Crisp and clean malt up front, then that lemonade sweetness in the middle, and a mild lemon tart finish. Tasty enough.
Mouthfeel: Lightly fizzy, with some of the stickiness and juiciness you would expect from a lemonade mixed with a beer.
Overall / Drinkability: I think this is pretty close to being a real shandy - just wish the beer had more backbone to it and then I think it would be a more interesting beer rather than just an average one. However, I will give it high marks for being quite drinkable and refreshing. Otherwise nothing special.
