A-Clear yellow, nice carbonation, one finger head that dissipates quickly.

S-Straw wheat, artificial lemon, sugary.

T-Unbalanced a sweet but tarting lemonade flavor. Lemon is mildly artificial. Too sweet. Nothing in the finish.

M-Light, watery, not much carbonation, almost flat.

O-Just a bad beer. Maybe if Shadys are your thing try it, but everything seemed to be off on this one.

Nice, light, bubbly, some white head, yellow colored. Looks appetizing...

Smells lemony, but not like a detergent or cleaner (which you run into sometimes). It's balanced by a light, wheaty scent lingering just behind it. It's nice.

Tastes a little too sweet, a little too lemony (like lemonade). I can see how it would be refreshing on a hot afternoon, maybe rocking on a porch swing, but it's not for me while I'm in a mood for beer.

Excellent mouthfeel, as is standard for The BBC. It's full-bodied and creamy, yet light. The aftertaste is a little too sweet though. Almost sticky.

This is a decent selection, and might be a nice choice to introduce a non-beer drinker to craft beer (or at least micro-brews, if The BBC is still that).

Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of light lemon notes with lightly sweet malt. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet lemon notes with some lightly sweet malt notes. Body is light with average carbonation. Bland shandy.
