BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anheuser-Busch
Missouri, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Summer

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.

Nice, refreshing summer beer. Nice lemon taste with a smooth feel. I will definitely enjoy this again.

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

DATE: August 14, 2016... OCCASION: Returning home from a great time at Penn State with Jer...watching the Olympics and trying to cool down...GLASSWARE: PSU weizen... sparse bubbles settle through a murky yellow gold body... the head is off-white and finishes before it begins to a pencil-thin circle.... lemon grass and citric juices mingle with malt liquor malts and throat lozenge to suggest this might have some work to do... first sip is light, fizzy, active at the tongue, short on its finish--perhaps this is a good thing, as the beefy, obscure flavor makes for a forgettable finish...overall, drinkable, if not somewhat bland... flavor profile is singularly lemonade, with malty sweetness providing some backbone and attempting balance to an otherwise lemony experience... tough to get behind this one when not trying to stave off the sun or the heat; in an air-conditioned room, this beer doesn't really win...
