Appearance: A yellow golden color that is not completely clear. Very small and thin head.
Smell: Clear lemon smell with a slight floral scent. Overall, I really smell the lemons mainly.
Taste: Very tart and refreshing beer. Has a sweet lemon taste and is enjoyable as a summer beer. Pretty decent beer but I feel like this is almost a beer made for non beer drinkers.
Overall: It is a fun beer to drink during the summer due to how refreshing and light it is. I would not be able to drink a lot of it but having a bottle every once in a while I can see myself doing.
Serving type: bottle

Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy 6pk bottles $8.99(OH)
12 oz brown bottle poured into a stemless white wine glass. Freshness date painted on bottle neck.
Pours a hazy yellow color. A two finger white head that fizzles away pretty quickly. Leaving little to no lacing.
The aroma is wheaty, and lots of lemons with a touch of honey. The lemon smell is clean, doesn't smell fake or pectin based.
Taste follows the nose. A light wheaty taste, followed by a splash of lemons with a light touch of honey. Good and refreshing.
Mouth feel is light but not watery. Crisp, well carbonated and a light lemon tang will stick around for a while. Not too dry and not a tad bit bitter.
Overall not bad, just not my type of beer. Its crisp, clean and refreshing and i bet better on a hot summer day. However its mid April, not summer and this is already released? Whats next Oktoberfest in August? Anyway back on point, Hot day or not i would rather have a traditional Hefe over this any day.
