Shock Top Lemon ShandyShock Top Lemon Shandy

Brewed by:
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.

Tried at the end of the brewery tour in St Louis. Only one available I hadn't reviewed. Two finger bright white head on a cloudy but still bright golden body. Musty wheat, rice, hint of lemon citrus but very light. The flavor starts with rice, wheat ad grain with carbonated not so fresh lemonade rounding out the finish. Light body and high carbonation. Pretty gross beer. Worse than I would imagine lemonade being spiked with bud light.

Appearance - Pours hazy, but thin looking straw yellow with a white, 2 finger head. Average retention, results in very little lacing.

Smell - Decent aroma of wheat and lemon. That's the gist of it.

Taste - Wheat hits first, followed quickly by a moderate lemon sourness, leading the charge into a simple, quick finish. A faint lemon note lingers well into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Razor thin watery body, with almost zero carbonation.

Overall - Another substandard Shock Top brew. Not a bad flavor, but the lack of any kind of body leaves this beer tasting a bit like lemon water.

It pours a semi-clear pale yellow hue with a quickly dissipating head. The scent is mild with creamy wheat and lemon aroma. The texture is slightly creamy with cheap grains and lemon hitting the taste buds rather weakly. This is essentially Bud’s version to compete with Miller’s distributed Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy. It’s a decent summer beer…maybe? I guess I would have to try both of them at the same time to give an honest opinion of which one is better but I have yet to have a shandy that tops Potosi Steamboat Shandy on draft. Overall this is average, maybe a little better but nothing that amazes me that much.
