Appearance: Extremely clear. Yellowish gold.
Smell: Lemon and citrus. Fruity.
Taste Slightly tart. Lemon juice and citrus.
Mouthfeel: Light carbonation.

I really enjoyed this. It doesn't pack any spectacular punches, but it is rather refreshing. The smell and taste both compliment the same, citrusy lemon effect. I think this would be best enjoyed served quite cold on a very hot day. Give this to a non-beer drinker as I did. She said, "This doesn't taste like beer at all!" I would possibly get this again.

So the biggest American craft brewery enters the "shandy-stakes" with this lemon-accented lager, and it's not bad.
Upon pouring a clean golden, I get a nice and fine white head and some pleasing but thin lace.

Nose is citrusy, but not overbearingly sweet.

Flavor is well-balanced with the lemon being not so forward as in other similar brews I've had. Enjoyable.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fizzles out quickly

S: Light malts and big lemon (both peel and general lemon). Slight pepper as well

T: Follows the nose, definitely get both the beer and lemonade aspects, the malts are really the only thing holding the beer up and the lemon flavor really stands out. Still somehow balanced

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

O: One of the better radler/shandy beers I've had that are put out on the market. The beer actually stands fairly well despite having the lemon flavors slightly dominating. Fits the season well.

Side note: I think this should be a different style in itself, with all the different ones coming out on the market. It's difficult to rate it as strictly a fruit beer, but that's just my opinion.

pours a light golden in color less than a finger head and no lace to speak of. nice strong lemon citrus aroma with a bready wheat like lemon taste. light to medium mouthfeel that ends very clean. its 90 degrees today and this beer is doing the job very well.
