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.

12 oz. bottle, with code on the bottleneck label 13114. Acquired this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store. A horrible idea I'm sure, and another awful incantation of the Shock Top brand. For the sake of knowledge!

Poured into a Lagunitas mason jar.

A - Pours a sickly pale yellow color with under two fingers of white fizz for a head that sizzles it's way out of existence. Looks pretty bad.

S - Smell? There really isn't any. Dusty yeast, pond water, and some grains. Artificial lemonade in the background. No spice character detected.

T - Taste is the same: dusty wheat, malts, grains, and some carbonated artificial lemonade soda mixed in there as well. I can see the wheat beer part, but the "Belgian", not so much.

M - Feel is crisp, light, watery, and mildly refreshing, in the same sense that a soda is. Light bodied with high bloating carbonation.

Overall, it's pretty bad, but it is drinkable and sessionable on a scorching summer's day. I can indefinitely say I would even prefer a Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy over this garbage. Avoid.

Shock Top Lemon Shandy ---2/5.

A-Hazy pale gold with a small white head that fades fast
S-wheat base but a good sweet lemonade smell
T-sweet lemon taste with a strong wheat grain aftertaste that stays with you til the finish
M-light body and a medium carbonation
O-It was little better than okay for a fruit beer. Might have been better on a hot summer day.
