Snagged a bottle of this for a buck. Watered down lager eh? Hope it at least has a lemon twist

A - Bright clear pee yellow with a full inch of head that seems to be fizzing out rather quickly.

S - Has a bit of hops and yeast but mostly smells of lemon zest with a bit of sprite soda.

T - Yet it drinks more like a soda with lemon leading into a somewhat sugary base and some malts in the back. Little to no hops either man it's what I guess people want beer and lemonade.

M - Light, crisp, and somewhat like beer.

Overall much better than the Shady I had from Labatt so that's saying something. Worth picking up on the cheap for a pound able summer brew that wouldn't get you trashed!

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Very light, clear gold with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Getting lots of Sprite and perhaps a touch of grainy malt. Definitely more soda then beer. Taste is similarly soda-forward, and tastes more like a ginger ale then beer. Pretty refreshing, actually. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a thin body and good, spritzy carbonation. NIce Summertime brew, but you have to be in the mood I suppose.

I am a little surprised that I liked this beer. It reminded me of a malt beverage. I image that on a hot day, this would absolutley delicious. Pouring a yellow straw color, the beer had a high level of carbonation. A synthetic lemon smell marked the aroma. The mouthfeel was very bubbly on the initial taste. It reminded me of lemon soda with a sweeter lemon kick. What was most disappointing was the carbonation was intense enough to sweep away the carbonation quickly. The aftertaste had some of the lemon notes, but the malt came to the front in the aftertaste. By no means is this an elite beer. Polishing off one of these after cutting the grass would be dangerously easy.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall foamy bright white head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There is a moderate aroma of sweet lemons with some lighter notes of malts and a slight amount of tartness. Also, I can detect a light presence of floral hops as well.

T: Upfront the flavor of the lemon soda is most present with a light to moderate amount of sweetness but then the flavors of the beer start to come through... There is a light amount of malt with a hint of some graininess and just a touch of floral hop presence.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp, slightly thin/watery, and with just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Not really a beer per se but it is quite easy to drink and very enjoyable. This is extremely refreshing and would go down super easily on a hot summer day. I could easily have quite a few of these in a session, especially considering the low ABV.

Drank from a 1 pt. 9 fl. oz./16.9 fl. oz./0,5 liter bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Belmont, MA
Served in a pint glass

Brassy yellow and crystal clear in appearance. The liquid was topped by a fluffy, sea foam, one-finger, bright white head. For a beer that is comprised of half soda, there was a surprising amount of head retention.

The aroma was sweet and lemony. Simple yet decent. Lemon soda came to mind. Some bready malts were noticeable. Slightly tart. There was also a subtle yet unpleasant skunky quality. The sweetness became syrupy and cloying as the beer warmed.

The taste was simply sweet lemon soda. Slightly tart on front end, but the tartness was no match for the pervasive, syrupy sweetness. Some unexpected, bitter hops kicked in on the finish. This beer really lacked balance.

The mouthfeel was light and spritzy. Quite watery. It definitely felt a lot more like soda than beer. The liquid left a sugary, gritty feeling on my teeth.

I love a good shandy in the summertime, but this beer was just far too sweet. Had they dialed back on the sugar content, as well as on the hops, this could have been decent.

I am hoping that I am reviewing the right beer, as the picture on my bottle is different, but listed as "Lemon", made with lemon soda.

The soda, err, I mean beer is clear pale yellow, headed toward colorless with this kind of clarity. A huge white head dissipates quickly to leave tons of thin lacing.

Smell is dirty malts, and a lemon citrus, at least it is what it says it is.

Taste is closer to soda than beer. Very lemony sweet, which gains some tartness on the finish. There might be some malts in there, but the lemonade taste is quite overpowering.

Feels thin and very fizzy. For this combo however, it's very hard to drink. The strangely crisp texture pulls at my mouth, and makes it a little uncomfortable to drink.

Uh, never again. Not only is this hard to drink, but it gave me a stomach ache from all the bubbles, like drinking too much soda. I might have drank this a little slower to avoid that, but I have a feeling this would get worse as it warms, but I could be wrong on both accounts.

DOA

Had a 5oz cup of this at a beer tasting.

Looks kinda like lemon soda, light yellow with plenty of rising bubbles. Smell is tart lemon with malt in the background. Taste is like a mix between a lemon soda and a wheat beer. I would have loved this when I was 15. Finishes with malt and a creamy beer-like feel.

This was a hard one to review, not really a beer as much as a malty lemon pop. Still, better than Mike's or the like.

1 pt. 0.9 Fl Oz poured into Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass

A: Poured a very light pale yellow with a very visible carbonation. The good 2 fingers worth of head settles to a ring with pretty good lacing.

S: Straight up sour lemons with a hint of malt and floral hops. Smells very good, but not like beer.

T: OK, the Lemonade hits right up front followed with a light malt light hops beer... More lemon than beer.

M: Very light with a lively carbonation, with a sweet aftertaste.

D: I almost let my 13 yr old son try this one.... there is so much more lemon than beer here, but maybe the fact that it is 94 made this one taste pretty damn good. It is what it is and it is not a bad beverage.
