2.54/5 rDev -15.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5
12oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet
A: A hazy/cloudy pink beverage that appears like freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice.
S: Sweet smelling but only slightly acidic, with that yeastiness coming through.
T: You get this weird kind of fruit juice flavor, closely followed by that yeastiness that I have had in a lot of my beers lately. It tastes a bit like grapefruit juice at the beginning but that is.
M: Almost no carbonation to speak of. There is ever the tiniest bit of foamy bubbles at the end though.
O: Not good. Even though I had their Summer Shandy a few days ago, I can barely remember the taste, but I believe the other one tasted a bit better. I was intrigued by the style and how it would taste, but these have not been good. Get some Fentimans if you want to try out the style, even though it might not be heavy on the beer side.

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.
