Drank from the 24 oz can. Another in this line of beers that can be found in many convenience stores in the absence of many good craft beers alongside Steel Reserve and other swill. This one is super sweet, and I wouldn't be surprised if someone gave this to me and said it was a Mike's Hard Lemonade. Pure lemon flavor, almost no beer flavor, which you know might be a good thing in a different setting. This is like a cocktail in a glass almost, although there's not much alcohol flavor to be found. You definitely feel it quick though. Another simply efficient way to get buzzed from Redd's.

Odd. Does not look like lemonade. More the color of a light tea.

Smells like a tea with a squeeze of lemon in it.

O.K. Now I am confused. This does not look like, smell like and now does not taste like lemonade. The taste is kind of reminiscent of tea with lemon like the appearance and smell.

Mouth feel is medium and a bit sticky due to the sugar content.

Overall this is not lemonade. I am really not sure what it is. I think I will add some ice to my glass. This should help cut it a bit as the ice melts. Do not get this expecting a lemonade. Really all things point me towards an iced tea with that squeeze of lemon in it. Not a bad product just seems to be a mislabeled product. Cheers to all and stay safe!

Out of 24 fl. oz. can with an best by date of Mar 09 2029. Sampled Oct. 31, 2019.

It looks like a lager with its golden yellow pour, quick fizzy head, and excellent clarity.

The nose has some sort of lemon air freshener character with some cardboard-like breadiness lurking behind it. Kind of ash-like too.

Light mouthfeel. Smooth.,

It is sweet and fruity on the taste but it leaves a kind of ashy aftertaste. Some fruitiness throughout but still an odd sort of character. Generally it is on target for a the hybrid fruity beer it is supposed to be but I'm not a fan of this style.

24 FL. OZ. can
Served in a pokal glass

This beverage pours amber with pale yellow highlights. It is topped with less than an inch of tan head that leaves no trace of its retreat.

The smell is as advertised, apple and lemonade.

It has a cider-like apple flavor. It is sweet. The lemonade flavor works its way through the sweetness providing somewhat a respite via slight tartness. It reminds me of the alcohol Arnold Palmer with cider instead of iced tea.

It has a syrupy mouthfeel

I bought it to consume after mowing my lawn. I did the job.

Appearance: Crystal clear light amber in color, with profuse carbonation. The head is snow white, and quite modest, perhaps a quarter of an inch upon pouring, and soon fades to nothingness, Lacing is all but absent, perhaps a bubble here and there upon the glass wall. Perhaps this was expected to be consumed directly from the can.

Aroma: Moderate aroma of lemonade and vodka. The alcohol note is pronounced, but manages to avoid being harsh.

Taste: Opens with a very subdued lemonade flavor. The alcohol seems more prominent in the aroma, than the taste, it is only mildly warming, there is no harshness, at all. I suppose I would have expected the lemonade flavors to be a bit more foreward, but they are not. Nothing offend here, its just rather subtle, mild lemonade and mild alcohol. I am made to think of Boone's Farm sparkling wines - not that there is anything wrong with that.

Mouth feel: Smooth and full, pleasant, with very soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Its OK, inoffensive, perhaps one of the least notable of the Redd's offerings. That being said, there is nothing wrong with it, it just seems a bit bland. Still, its quite inexpensive, with no cause for regret.

Presentation: Packaged in a twenty-four ounce aluminum can, served in a South American-style Pilsener.

Poured from a 24 oz. can. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of lemons, sugar. Taste is sweet, some lemons, a hint of tart,with a lot of sweetness. Feels light bodied in the mouth and overall, I hate to waste beer, but I have type 2 diabetes, so with this much added sugar half of this can is headed for the drain.

I stopped in at the FGBS on Saturday to clear out the Box o' Fun, but when I saw this CAN champ on the shelf, I knew that I needed it not only for The CANQuest (tm), but also for #MacroMonday a thing started by their manager.

From the CAN: "Ale with Natural Flavor and Caramel Color".

I Cracked open this 24-fl. oz. monster & beCAN a swift, hard kick inna pants, I mean, pour, which briefly generated two fizzy, foamy fingers of bone-white head that quickly fizzled out of sight. Outta sight, baby! CAN you dig it? Color was solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). Solid! Nose smelled like that artificial lemonade mix that I used to peddle to the jive turkeys onna corner when I was a kid. Hmm. Man, those jonesin' cats would slurp that sugary mess like it was goin' outta style! Mouthfeel was thin, watery, like lemonade. Hmm. Who's jivin' whom today? Man, this is some drink up & get out action! Baby, go grab me a real beer! Yes, GEN Woody. I could really taste the sugariness of the malt in this and there was not enough lemon flavor to trip my trigger. This was the stuff of which hangovers are made. Finish remained sweet, too sweet for this hophead, dig? YMMV. Baby, I gotta go! I need to catch the crosstown bus, dig? I need a righteous score, not this stuff, dig? Right on, GEN Woody! Peace out, man. Groovy!
