Drank from a 12 ounce glass bottle.

Look - Normal decent looking Leinenkugel label except obnoxiously yellow.

Smell - Rotten lemons, damp carpet, semi-pleasant baking spices. Not the best smell, but it's got a decent amount going on.

Taste - A vague lemon flavor. Not too sweet, not too sour. Occasionally some hints of beer come through, but it's just the idea of beer more than beer itself.

Feel - Strong spiky carbonation and thin body make this drink very much like a soda. Not too big on it.

Overall - A "beer" for people who don't like beer. Nothing much here that I'd care to revisit, but it could be decent under a hot summer sun.

On draught at Gaslight Social Club.

Pours a hazy yellow, small head of foam.

I get notes of lemon, wheat, bread. All on the light side.

Tastes like it smells. Inoffensive light flavours, simple, refreshing.

Light body with medium carbonation.

It is what it is. I miss the Sunset Wheat.

From twelve ounce bottle, no discernible freshness date.
Pours a very thick frothy head that lasts a few minutes then gently laces the glass. Color is a cloudy lemon yellow. This is a weakly tasting brew of lemonade and slightly breads wheat. Leaves a medicinal aftertaste,but, not entirely unpleasant on a very hot summer day!

I had this beer at a Milwaukee Brewers game at Miller Park. It was 88 and humid. I had two Shandys, which hit the spot. Not a beer that I would drink at a bar or an indoor event. This is good beer for what it's marketed for, summer.

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.

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