Pours a lemon straw color with a thin, creamy head. Sweet malt and lemon smell. The taste is a bit too sweet for me, but if you backed it up a notch, this could be really good. The masses will like. The helles seems of decent quality, but would like a bit more bold. Finishes light with the candied lemon.

Pours with a golden body with decent head and lace. There is lemon and wheat and sweet malt in the nose.

Taste is too sweet for me, with sugar and lots of carbonation, almost like a cola. This definitely isn't my bag. I could recommend in hot weather with spicy food.

12oz bttl into BL glass
L- pours a super clear gold with foamy head which dissipates into ring of lacing
S- tart lemon, with some sweet malt
T- tickles the tongue with this real gorgeous sour/sweet tartness, followed by some lemon, with a no-show finish
F- light bodied crisp and refreshing however watery on the finish
O- really like this beer, however a little more malt will make a "helles" of a difference

This beers pretty dark for a lighter tasting beer. There's not very much smell but you get a hint of the lemon and tartness that makes up the flavor of the beer.

Excellent summer beer. I've become disappointed in Sam Summer over the years. This is by far superior. Light body and lemon taste makes it refreshing. A shanty? Yes. I'm a big fan of shanty beers
