Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a Pilsner glass; canned 28 August 2021.
A: Pours a hazy, golden-yellow color with a one finger, white head, low retention, but decent bands of lacing.
S: Aromas of lemon-lime and dry grasses/sweet hay.
T: Sweet and zesty. Citrus (lemon>>lime), sugar cane, and subtle spice flavors. Interestingly bitter, almost as if lemon zest.
M: Light bodied with medium effervescence. Refreshing.
O: A bit like FMB, but the bitterness makes it clear it is a beer. Very enjoyable.

This one had a descent smell to it with a lot of lemon. But the strong lemon taste totally overwhelmed everything else. It was also a lot heavier than I thought it would be.

Think I prefer this one to Leinenkugel's. It's more of a lemonade beer than that one, but it's what I'm looking for when crushing multiple while camping on a hot summer day.

Purchased as a single can from Kroger for $1.69. Poured into a tulip glass.

L - Bright, slightly hazy yellow with a three-finger pale white head. Laces very well. Superb retention.
S - Lemon squares with powdered sugar. Slight wheat. Zesty.
T - Freshly-squeezed lemonade is very upfront, followed closely by lemon zest and honey. Cheerio and wheat finish.
F - Very smooth. Well-carbonated. Almost like a frothy soda! Medium-light body.
O - Imagine if Bud Light Lemonade was made with a 10x larger budget, and sold at nearly the same price. This is it! A fantastic beer if you want something fresh and casual, or want a craft beer while playing beer pong. Pretty good, albeit a little one-dimensional. Definitely recommend, though.

The standard for the shandy has always been Leinenkugel's. This competes, but it's not quite on that level. While delightfully refreshing and oh so crushable on a hot day while on the back deck while grilling, the Goose's one drawback is that it is a bit syrupy. The lemon flavor is very good, but after two or three, the beer became a little too thick for me. Came in a 15 pack and I’m still working through it. Nice beer, but not sure I need any more Lemon Geese this summer.

The best i could descride it is like if a mikes hard lemonade and a cheap run of the mill ale had a baby. Its not bad, but its not that impressive. The lemon flavor sticks out a little more than your average shandy.

312 Lemonade Shandy pours a hazy, golden color, with a small, but long lasting and lacing head. Aroma has a nice wheat undertone, with a candy like lemon flavor. Flavor is sweet, sugary lemon notes. Body does feel a little flat. Overall, a sweet bright lemon beer.

Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a long lasting white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is lemon Froot Loops. Flavor follows the nose, sweet lemonade without any hop bitterness. Feel is smooth and lightly carbonated. Overall a very nice lawn mowing beer.

Pretty below average really considering the simple concept, nose was pretty much non existence and the taste is of subtle lemonade. There's a gazillion radlers and Shandys better than this in my opinion.

On draft. Poured a cloudy, straw-yellow color with a good-sized, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left sudsy trails of lace on the glass. It smelled of lemonade, wheat, caramel and toffee. Sweet lemon taste with a subtle tartness and hints of caramel.

Poured from a can. Straw in color and hazy with a small head. Smells of malt, bread and lemon cookies. Flavor follows the smell but has a slight medicine hint to the end. Not bad, not great

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Appearance is slightly hazy and yellow, with more than a finger's worth of white head. Good retention.

Aroma: wheat and lemons, pretty straightforward. Maybe some other notes of ginger too.

Tastes like a wheaty lemonade. Not too sweat, just right really. And not really tasting anything else. Body is medium light.

Says wheat ale with natural lemon flavor...

L: Hay yellow. Opaque. Little carbonation. Glossy surface.

S: Hefeweizen with lemon juice.

T: That's a shandy alright. Tastes like minute maid lemonade. The lemon flavor overwhelms any nuance the hefeweizen may have added.

F: Sticky residue on the finish. Also flat.

O: I suppose "From Concentrate" qualifies as a "Natural Flavor"

Poured a slightly hazy yellow with a fluffy white head that hung around for awhile.
Aroma of feint lemons and wheat.
Taste follows the aroma. Not overly sweet. Almost like a lemon drop candy finish with a touch of wheat.
Not usually a shandy fan, but this one I could drink again.

It tastes more like lemonade that beer with no funky bitter notes. Not overly sweet like Mike's Hard Lemonade, but noticeably sweeter than Lemon Shady.

Aroma is lemonade, wheat/malts and a hint medicinal/ginger. The flavor is lemon/lemonade, wheat/malts, a medicinal/ginger hint in the middle and a mildly sweet finish.
