Got a 6-Pack from a guest.
From the bottle into a stange.
(Review from notes)

A - Bright and light. Gold. Small bright white head which quickly fades.

S - Lemonade. Refreshing.

T - Sweet and sour, to be expected.

M - Heavier than a light beer, lemony aftertaste, little carbonation.

Summary - This is technically a Radler. It's inoffensive, but very lemony. This is really like 50/50 lemonade/beer. This is not a bad beer, but I would only have it on a hot Summer's day.

Picked up as part of the summer sampler case in late June.

Beer poured a deep gold with an average head on the initial pour.

Nose is lemony.

Taste is a hybrid glass of lemonade/beer. The sourness of the lemon is offset by the sweetness of the malt base so it works okay.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing.

Overall, not a bad beer. Definitely good on a 105 degree day in Phoenix.
