Our Lemon Shandy is a unique take on the classic Shandy that is distinctly Shock Top.

Brewed with two row and six row malted barley and five different types of hops, this Belgian-Style Wheat Ale is then combined with citrus peels, coriander, natural lemonade flavor and a hint of sugar for a subtle sweetness. The end result is an incredibly refreshing, crisp and smooth beer that hits the spot.

12oz bottle - review from notes

Not a great beer. Very watery and sweet with strong chemical "pine-sol" flavor.

Just buy any other lager and squeeze a fresh lemon innit

This is a very pale yet hazy beer with a short lived head. The smell reminds me of lemon candy. The lemon scent overpowers any others that may be present. The taste, however, is balanced between lemony and beer. The malty flavor balances with the lemony to create a sweet and lemony flavors. The hopping is very hidden; I feel that more hops could be beneficial. But it is crisp and refreshing. The feel is watery but with good carbonation. This isn't a bad shandy, maybe not the best and could use some improvement. But not bad.

Shock Top Lemon Shandy brewed by Anheuser-Busch, with an ABV of 4.20% This Fruit and Field Beers pours out of a 12oz glass bottle into a pint beer glass. The color is a hazy light amber color with a small white head. The head to this brew goes away fast. There is little to no lacing to this brew. Not saying that is a bad thing. The smell is Rich with lemons notes mixed with grains and malts. Now for the taste , it is Rich with flavors. You first pick up a nice amount a lemon at first then a real nice smoothness from the grains and malts. The body of Shock Top Lemon Shandy is a solid medium. Definitely a smooth easy drinking brew. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. This brew would go nice with lunch or a hot summer day. Definitely would keep you cool. The mouth feel is Bold Lemon, Clean, Smooth, Crips, and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Shock Top Lemon Shandy a 3.75 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again on a hot summer day. Anheuser-Busch, did a nice job with this Shandy style of brew.

You got my beer in your Lemon Pledge!
You got my Lemon Pledge in your beer!

Two bad tastes that taste WORSE together!

Maybe I got a bad batch, but this literally tastes like someone dumped lemon scented furniture polish in a bottle of cheap generic beer!

The presence of what appear to be a yeast residue does not seem to influence the flavor at all, it’s just... bad, utterly revolting, if this was my first experience with beer, I’d never touch another drop.

No mouthfeel, no body, just weakly fizzy and watery, and a very off chemical smell, like they used “I can’t believe it’s not lemonade” as the base stock

Review in short;

Whoa. Does this one have some sweetness to it. I do not usually like the Lemon category of beer, this one makes it sweet and almost to a point where it does not taste like beer, it kind of tastes like a bite into a sweet Lemon candy that wants to be a step below a shandy.
