If you approach this shandy as not a beer but an alchoholic lemonade (a hard lemonade, I guess) it's a wonderful and refreshing beverage on a hot summer day. Honestly, this drink hit the spot perfectly.
However, like I said, you need to approach this beer differently than other beers. Keep an open mind, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Lemon notes stood out so strongly I could forget I was drinking a beer and imagine I was drinking lemonade. It doesn't go down smooth, but neither does lemonade, I suppose.
Serving type: on-tap

This Radler poured with a bright lemon yellow hue that was capped by a fizzy, carbonated foam that collared away to nothing.
The nose is lemony, sort of sugary, with an obvious carbonated soda water.
The flavor is lemony as well but it's a sugary sweet artificial flavor. The finish is harsh and seems loaded with soda water, or Perrier like taste. I hate sparkling water and this reminds me of it.
The feel is so overly carbonated that it's harsh and prickly. It's almost too harsh to drink.
I drained poured this, because I should not undergo torture while drinking beer.
Serving type: bottle
