Refreshing sitting by the summer fire. Kind of a mix between an easy drinking beer and lemonade. Not real filling.

An excellent shady. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Smells like lemon Pledge. Tastes like lemon meringue pie. Lemony with a little sweetness. Great hot summer day brew.

I have had this beer many times in the past every summer. I purchased this 16 oz. can at a local gas station. The best by date is October 15th.

Summer Shandy pours a hazy light golden hue with a thick two fingered head that dissipates pretty quickly and there is very little lacing left after a few minutes.

The aroma contains hints of lemon, wheat & honey. The lemon does seem a tad artificial though.

The flavor is somewhat muted. The lemon and wheat do blend together decently and there is bit of sweetness from the honey. The finish has a very slight bitterness to it.

Overall this is a decent beer. There is nothing that overly stands out but it sure is refreshing on a hot summer day.

Light and lemony. Good for a pretty tame summer day or night. Goes down easy(and quickly )

It poured a hazy yellow with lots of carbonation and nice white head. The smell is of weak lemons and taste is of week watered down beer with a lemon hint. The was just not making it got me. Some people my like it but just not for me.

This smells and tastes like summer. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon. I am generally not a big fan of shandies but this one is better than average.

Hard to believe I haven't had this before. This is a straightforward and solid shandy. Nice bright lemon flavors with a decent malt backbone. It's a great summer beer.

Can- pours a hazy pale straw with a puffy 2 finger cap...aroma is subtle- biscuit dough and lemon with some grassy spiciness. Flavor is mild, rounded, bready with a lemon kiss and a creaminess in the mouth feel, fast crisp finish, a decent thirst buster...I never liked these things (My dad had to make shandys for my Mom in the summer heat because she thought beer was "fattening")...always thought they were fruity, weak ladies drinks...but I found myself liking this one as I literally slammed it after a hot day of yard work.

What a shandy. Very easy drinking and full of citrus flavour. Reminds me of a stronger tasting shock top.

Pours a light hazy golden color. 1 finger white head with decent retention.
The nose has a lemon aroma to it.
Taste A light slight lemon flavor. Slight sweet.
Body is light, and slightly watery.
For a shady, on a hot summer day, it's delicious.
