Looks like some grapefruit juice from a cafeteria juice machine, small bubbled white head is gone quickly like the winter snowpack come spring. Lemon head and fruity hard candies hit the nose, it's like driving near the jolly rancher factory in Colorado. Sweet lemon drops and berrys cause the tongue to smile at first, but that fades as the sweetness becomes cloying. No trace of hops, a little bit of plain wheat, and white bread. Light in body with a soda pop style carbonation.
This could be a tagalong to a picknick with the Mrs. or maybea mix in for a beer cocktail of some sort. I feel like the fruit beer I've had lately is aimed at children, I would have loved this in middle school/HS.

Pours a hazy pink color with a fizzy white head that reduces quickly, leaving just a bit behind. Smells of lemon soda, berries and a hint of biscuity malt. Tastes of berry lemonade mixed with a slightly crisp and malty pilsener. Mouthfeel is somewhat light and spritzy, leading to a foamy finish. These shandy's work great on a hot summer day out by the pool, otherwise they would be too fruity/soda like. But they serve a purpose, and I buy them every summer

12 oz can poured into a lager glass.
A - Cloudy dark peach. Head stays a few minutes. Good lacing throughout.
S - Raspberry and citrus.
T - Raspberry and citrus. If one waits several minutes, a light malt flavor appears also.
M - Medium
O - This is a pleasant, refreshing shandy. The 4.2 ABV is a plus because these go down quick (unless you're into the whole"getting wasted" thing). A great summer session beer.
