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.

A - A very light golden blonde color, moderate carbonation, thin white head, and clear with no perceptible haze.
S - From the first whiff, the lemon zest jumps out and you get a hint of the malt.
T - It fits the bill as an extremely lemony, citrusy summer beer, malt presence hides in the background and hop are not noticeable either.
M - A light, easy sipping summer beer.
O - An enjoyable, easy to drink beer, but it's a bit too sweet for my tastes and I would prefer more citrus complexity with this beer.

Decent radler and a typical underwhelming beer from SA. The lemon flavor is a little fake tasting, but otherwise this is a great thirst quencher for when you are at a BBQ in the summer. It's mostly a sweet beer and when warm can be a bit cloying. So drink it fast and cold and it will keep you going through the humid days.

This is a good beer that tastes like summer. Not bitter at all a sweet beer, but not overly sweet. Ice cold on a warm day and it is great.

This one really surprised me as I wasn't expecting much. It's very, VERY lemony. Sweet but not tart. Crisp and refreshing brew for a hot summer day. Not much pop, so it could use a little more carbonation. Serve it very cold. I'd buy again.

Not a great beer, but decent on a hot day. This is truly a summer beer. Serve very cold and it is quite refreshing. Strong lemon. Decent head that lingers. Pleasing aftertaste with a sweet finish. Goes down easy and a good thing it has a low ABV. Overall very average for this type, but I would buy again.
