Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Boring

A few years ago I saw the movie "Lemonade Mouth". I started drinking lemonade all the time after that, and when I came upon some Lemon Shandy I figured it would be perfect. I enjoy the wonderful taste of lemonade and get stoned to the bejesus at the same time. So lemon shandy is high on my list.

But not this one. This is just so boring. There's very little flavor or smell. Very disappointing.

Decent beer, not sure why it gets crushed in ratings other than bias. Overall not one I would go after this one but would not be mad if that was all someone had.

Smells like lemon cough drops.

Tastes like lemon cough drops.

Drinks like Pine sol.

I wonder if this could make a good floor cleaner. Will report back with results.

A really tasty shandy that goes great with food, a perfect beer for a bbq. I don't understand why it's rated so low, I'd get tired of them after a few but a couple are really good
