By far more smooth than most shandys. First I liked Blue moon because you have the orange to offset the taste. Then I progressed to Shock top & now this is the ultimate orange beer. No orange needed and no harshness like with Blue moon. This is a must try seasonal beer that is perfect for the beach or anytime!

Appearance: Completely unfiltered, orange-ish-yellow, but more towards yellow. Slightly off-white head; frothy at the top.

Aroma: Orange juice, with a slight note of grain. But really, if I didn't know it was beer, I'd probably just say orange juice.

Taste: Mainly oranges. But, towards the end of the middle of the taste, I get some mild grain and bread, with some white wheati-ness on the back of my tongue--in that order. Some bitterness from the carbonation is present, but no bitterness from the hops.

Finish: Semi-dry. Crisp, refreshing.

Overall: I approve.

Serving type: can

I enjoyed this bear from a tap at a hotel restaurant in Shartelsville, PA. I had first requested a sample, since I didn't even know Leinenkugel even made an Orange Shandy. While I feel it's more of a late-spring or mid-summer drink, It has an appealing aroma and a strong taste of oranges. The color was more or less what I was expecting, given the only other beer with orange hints in it that I've had (and could taste) was Blue Moon. Whoever was in charge of the tap didn't leave a lot of room for a head, so I can't really go into detail on that.

It is a very smooth and surprisingly crisp beer for one released in the Fall, and I really enjoy beers like this. The hazy color seemed to blend perfectly into the spirit of fall, but the flavor seems out of place for the season. It's something- that if it really is only available this time of year- that I would advise hanging on to until spring. Other than that, it's a fantastic drink, and one I know I'll be having plenty more of.

Think creamy head. Good taste. Would of expected more of an orange taste then what there was. We play a lot of yard games in my neighborhood and beer often gets real warm while outside. No matter. I've drank this beer almost tepid in temp and it still tasted good and went down smooth. Perfect summer beer when it's really hot outside. Extremely refreshing.
