Great Summer beer. Lemon zest is strong but not over powering. Goes down smooth and doesn't leave a weird after taste like lots of lemon beers do.

Look: Golden with slight orange tint.
Smell: Not much as far as beer goes, but very citrus/lemon smell.
Taste: Like lemonade and beer mixed together, which is probably what the brewer was aiming for.
Overall: This beer is so different than the beer I usually drink but I actually like it. I wouldn't want to drink this all the time but if I was sitting on my front porch in the shade after mowing my yard I think I would love this.

This is a really tasty beer

-Crisp, clear golden lager appearance
-Not a lot in the way of aroma, a bit of lemon and bready malt
-Tastes great. Excellent integration of the lemon flavor with the base beer. I don't know if the base beer here is their standard helles, but if it is, I want some
-As full bodied as you could hope for a beer of this style. It is a bit sticky, but that is to be expected to a degree

Overall: Maybe a bit too sweet, but overall I can't complain too much. Tasty, tasty stuff
