Label reads "Salzberg beer with lemon soda"

Appearance is pale straw in color with impressive clarity. Definite lager qualities almost like a brightly clear cider. 2 finger head with mediocre head retention.
Smells of fresh lemon meets lightly sweet pale malts. Impressive natural aroma, quite a surprise for me.
Tastes as I would have hoped, fresh lemon joins a balance sweet pale malt base.
Mouthfeel is light body with a sweet light lemon finish along with a dash of sweet slickness.
Nice version of a low abv pre-made Shandy, this one caught me by surprise. Impressive for the concept, but not really my kind of beer.

Pours a nice golden color with a frothy white head.

Very crisp and clean with nice carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouth feel.

Really not much to say about the taste of the beer, other than awesome (if you like lemonade/lemon soda).

Very simple and flavorful; a nice German pilsner brewed with lemon soda; it is what it is.

Very refreshing and drinkable, especially on a hot day here in the desert.

Served in a Spaten mug at Hessen Haus

If you go into this just looking for a fun beer you'll enjoy it. The color is clear dark yellow with plenty of white foam. The aroma is a smack to your nose of lemon and maybe some of the carbonation tickling your whiskers if you're too close. The taste is lemon but sweet with a touch of grain alcohol. The lemon packs a punch right away, then falls of for a few seconds, then comes back strong, an upside-down bell curve of flavor. The body is on the thin side but it seems fitting for this beer's theme. A tartness lingers that balances the sweetness.
If you're in the mood for something light and enjoyable this is a good choice. Prost!

Bought a 1 PT 0.9 FL. OZ. 16.9 FL. OZ. 0.5 LITER bottle from Binny's Beverage Depot in Chicago, IL for $3.49. Poured from the Yellow Tableclothed labeled bottle w/ Lemons & the Red Stiegl sign & " 50% Stiegl-Goldbrau Premium Lager & 50% Lemon Soda" on the back into a Stemmed Wine Glass. Has 05.01.12 on the back in a silver box (looks like a best by date).

Aroma- Strong malts and evident that there is lemon added in. Has a lemon drop candy aroma and hits the nose very sweet.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that dies very quickly. Has a light golden body with great clarity. Sudsy lacing is left behind. Quite average.

Flavor- Has an extreme candied lemon and lemon peel taste from the beginning. Sugar and malts come in toward the middle of the drink and then a easy, clean finish concludes the drink. Fantastic!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Smooth, and VERY refreshing! Leaves the candied lemon taste on the palate afterwards!

Overall Impression- Just like I remembered from living in Wien! I'm so surprised that it gets distributed to Chicago but not St. Louis... Upset also. I used to enjoy this brew while hanging on the beaches with classmates or even enjoyed this with Wiener Würstchen at one of the local stands. If you see this one, don't pass it up! Very refreshing and perfect with or without a meal.

This is one of my favorite Sunday morning pre-football beverages, especially if I am going to be out in the sun getting dehydrated.

A - Looks like pale lager, but appears less carbonated.

S - Smells like lemon soda, but not Sprite or 7up, with a hint of grain.

T - Tastes fantastic. Not very beer-like, but it's only half beer, so what would you expect? It has a flavor more like a Stewart's, Jarritos, or Jones lemon-lime soda, coupled with a dry, clean pilsener.

M - Sharply effervescent and thirst-quenchingly refreshing.

D - Awesome. Unless you want to get drunk.

Poured in a Stella glass, this is a light lemon with a lot of carbonation with a small white head. Slight lemon nose, smells like a lemon soda. Tastes like a sparkling lemonade, not overally sweet. Overall, a very light refreshing lemon soda-beer mix.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Mild to minimum lacing. Color is almost a faded bright fellow with a light popping head.

S - Smells like sweat citrus, lacks the bitter abrasive smell of many shandies.

T - The taste is very sweet and refreshing. Surprisingly, there isn't the same tartness you get when mixing a homemade shandy with lemonade.

M - This beer is a bit smoother then a light beer, very clean, with an every so slight creaminess.

D - Extremely Drinkable. Because of its low ABV and refreshing sweat taste, you are able to drink this beer without worrying about overconsumption or it wearing on your taste buds.

Over all I really enjoy this beer and make sure it's available at my summer parties. It is equally great on a relaxing day of nothing or after an afternoon of hard work.

I really enjoy this. Poured out to a light yellow color with no traces of lace or much of a head. Lower carbonation. Floral notes were the most obvious odor, as was a touch of hops. Not too much to speak of it appearance or smell, but the flavor and drinkability is where it's at for this brew. Exceptionally refreshing, with notes of the obvious lemon soda adding sweetness, but the beer is still in the mix, with some light malt and hops making it in on the finish. Very thirst quenching. Smooth, light and easy mouthfeel. This is for sure my new summer beer. Recommeded.

From 500mL bottle to Pilsner glass on 5/3/12
*From notes

A: Pale straw golden. Brilliant. What a lovely glass of beer. It looks like a very pale grower's champagne. A good pour yields a bone white two finger head that leads to no lacing or collar.

S: Would you be surprised if I told you that this smelled like freshly squeezed lemons, and lots of 'em? A touch medicinal, like a lemon cough drop. But it in no way overwhelms the freshness of the fruit.

T: Off-dry lemonade kicks the fore into gear. It carries to the mid, where a touch of malt (or maybe a bit of corn mash) arrives in the background. The finish is creamy, like a dollop of fluff atop a lemon meringue pie. One of the most refreshing and crisp libations I've ever had the pleasure to quaff.

M: Quite light and very bubbly. This drinks like a lemon mimosa.

O: I can't wait to crush more of these on the dog days of summer. Wonderful, wonderful stuff. I understand some of the negative reviews - this isn't something that would appeal to all palates. But it certainly appeals to mine. Easily recommended for hot summer days and warm evenings where you're looking knock back more then your fair share of suds.

500ml brown bottle

Pours a light yellow with a small white head. A light nose of lemon and a mild grassyness. Light, refreshing and very easy to put down, a little sweet but by no means cloying. One of the best bottled versions of the style ive come across. Worth a try.
