look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and good lacing. Smells of strong lemon, hint of hops, slight pale malt, and a kool-aid sweetness. Fits the style of a Fruit / Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight lemon, cola?, slight earthiness, hint of pale malt, and a hint of caramel. Overall, decent appearance, odd aroma, and the body is poor with the cola and caramel creating a horrible flavor.

A unique shandy with a first taste of slightly sweetened beer followed by a more intense taste of lemon drops. It ends with a smooth, mild sweetness that is satisfying, but not overpowering. Not something to write home about, but it certainly a solid summer beer and is crisp enough to be enjoyed in the fall as well

Don't mind an occasional shandy on a summer day. Went for a different brand, but this one was on sale. First try was out of the bottle while mowing the lawn... Did Not enjoy. Tried again Today poured into a pilsner glass. Color was light, very pale yellow. Soapy white head was thick but quickly disappeared. Smell was citrus, lemon... light, not too fake.

Taste was not great. Seemed off and mismatched. A lot of Carmel malt flavor. Too much. The lemon flavor was there, but Didn't go with the sweet Carmel malt. Mouthfeel was almost thick, which didn't feel right from Such a pale beer, and certainly from a shandy.

Took a long time to get through this one, and honestly, as it warmed, the flavors mellowed considerably. There's an interesting beer in there... somewhere under the lemons. Just not the crisp, clean, zesty summer beer I was expecting.

On tap at the Genesee Brew House in Rochester, NY.

I didn't hate this one, which is a miracle in and of itself.

Pours a slightly hazy summery yellow, with a big, 1.5 inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells like lemonade, grassy hops, and sweet malt. Smells sweet.

When colder, the lemonade doesn't come out as strongly, so you get more of the lager taste- grassy hops and sweet malt. Once it warms up, the lemonade aspect of this shandy/radler becomes more apparent. Sweet but tart lemon dominates. Actually quite refreshing.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel, very drinkable.

This one was surprisingly pretty good. Would I buy bunch of it? No. Am I happy I tried it? Very much so.

This beer is about a medium gold color, bright but slightly hazy. A pure white cap of head rises to just under a finger and falls quickly. A wisp of head remains in the middle and a bit clings to the sides. A modicum of spotty lacing is left behind.
For the style, the smell isn't bad. Lemon is sturdy but doesn't overshadow everything else, not that there's a whole lot more. A bit of pale malts with a grainy overtone sit over some dusty notes, and the sweetness isn't too strong.
The taste is that of grains-heavy lemon soda. Sure, there's some malt, but the overall beer character is quite weak.
The body's actually almost medium but ultimately this is still pretty refreshing. Crispness doesn't bite too hard. It leans a little more toward going thin than the more common slick or cloying feel.
