I truly do enjoy a Summer Shandy every once in a while in the summer. A cold one on a hot day can be really refreshing. It's definitely not my first choice though. Kinda citrusy without overdoing it like some others (cough...Bud Light Lime...cough). A hint of grapefruit too. I would never drink it warm or even slightly cool, it's gotta be cold. Not bad, not a first choice, kinda just mediocre in the summer.

12 oz bottle BB 6/2/17 poured into a can glass at fridge temp 4.2% ABV. The beer is the color of pineapple juice and very hazy. The head is white and short lived with only a thin ring left around the glass after a few minutes. The aroma is very faint of lemon. The taste is wheat malt and the hint of lemon. Mouthfeel is full and soft with sharp carbonation and a hint of the filmy aftercoating you get in cheap AAL. Overall, ok for its intended duty, but not for me.
