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.

It's hot out. I had this. I didn't totally loathe it. Now, granted, that might have something (a lot?) to do with how hot out it was, and how ready I was for anything remotely refreshing, but . . .

Slightly cloudy, yellow lager-y colour. Decent head, initially. Slight malt aroma and faint Belgian yeast with some sweetened lemonade ("lemon"-ade).

It went down quickly enough, I suppose, was sufficiently light. Whatever; I can't bring myself to actively dislike it.

Let's be clear - there may be malt in the recipe, but this really ain't beer. The artificial lemon flavour dominates the overall profile and it's just too sweet for me. In my books, it's a hot weather option if your choices are limited.

Poured at 47°F from a 12oz bottle into a nonic pint glass until there was a half inch of beer left in the bottle. That half inch was then swirled around per instructions and joined the rest of the beer in the glass.
LOOK: 45 seconds. Neon yellow in color with a high amount of cloudiness. Rising bubbles are both medium and small in size and very subtle in quantity. Lacing is thin and subtle.
SMELL: Just some mild aromas of sweet artificial lemonade, wheat, and coriander.
TASTE: Mild artificial lemonade flavors enter initially and are immediately followed my mild wheat flavors. Subtle flavors of coriander and hints of spicy hops enter lastly as wheat flavors maintain, but artificial lemonade flavors grow slightly stronger.
FEEL: Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated. Goes down somewhat smooth. Finsiehs crisp.
NOTE: The bottle says that natural lemonade flavor is added, but it tastes fake to me. In addition to that, this lacked complexity. I've always thought Shock Top made alright beers, but this just wasn't good.
