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.

Clearly this beer has that Lemon flavor. I was feeling this beer. I bought the variety case and this was a really good beer. If you like that lemon flavor you will enjoy it. I will note that beer is probably better if you have one or perhaps two. It is not a beer that I would drink on a regular basis

On-tap 6/23/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy light yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lemons, light caramelized malts but not much else.

T: The taste starts out with a sweet lemon flavors up front. Then there’s some mild breadiness from a thin malt character. There’s no distinguishable hops presence as you would expect, but a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, it’s pretty decent for the type of beer that it is made to be.
