A : A classic lager yellow color with a foamy cap about 2 fingers tall. Lacing is few and far between but visible. 90% transparent. Fairly unremarkable, so a 3.75.

S : Strawberries, wet malt, a little bit of yeast, clove, honey, and more wetness. It's a crisp aroma with some soggy notes.

T : Fruity and delectable. Stawberry, orange, lemon, banana. Behind that is a crisp malt body, and some more fruitiness. A hint of breadiness on the finish. It's kind of reminiscent of Lucky Bucket's Belly Flop, but actually a bit better.

F : Light bodied, retaining a smidge of creaminess, with very light carbonation, and it ends a tad soppy.

O : I'd have this again. A really nice, flavorful summer ale. Better than most of the summer only offerings I've had thus far.

Bottle. Not a favorite for me. Very high in Citrus taste. Light in color. Smell was Citrus. Just not my type of beer. I enjoy heavy beers with some kick and taste.

I really like this beer. The lemon scent just screams summer. The taste is really mellow and smooth. Not too much carbonation, an easy going, non overwhelming taste.

The aftertaste is the best part. It reminds me of drinking Brisk Lemon Iced Tea from a Can and you get that sweet lemon taste.

Overall satisfying experience.

This was fine for what it is, alcoholic lemon soda, but calling it beer is laughable.

It's a leneinkugels summer shandy in disguise.
