Drank straight from bottle so no comment on appearance.

Smells like copper and lemons. Hint of strong wheat at deeper whiff. Sweet, lemony, coppery wheat. That's it.

Taste - lemony and slightly bitter. A great shandy but on the wrong night this brew can be downright nasty. I just got done mowing the lawn and this beer is supreme. Quenches thirst like a Gatorade. If you tip it straight back and guzzle you'll bypass some of the beer bitterness and get a nice mix of fresh lemonade and lager. Low carbonation but just enough to tickle the tongue. Very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is watery and light. Just as it should be for a shandy. "Refreshing" will go into this category so it's the highest rated.

All in all, refreshing is the key word for this beer. Absolutely wonderful for hot, sticky summer days.

Nice work leinenkugels!

Lemony goodness on a warm day.

A super refreshing, super sweet, and super strong citrus taste.

Fantastic.

I dont even know what type of beer the summer shandy is, but it is already one of my favorites. I probably couldn't drink more than 2 at a time or may get tired of the taste, but is a great treat.
