2.49/5  rDev -20.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a two-fingered fizzy. white head on a cloudy pale body. Pour head retention, some lacing.

S- Smells like lemon juice...weird bread?

T- Taste more like a soda than a beer, Squirt comes to mind. Sugary sweet. There's this weird off-putting taste in there somewhere. Refreshing citrus aftertaste.

M- Very carbonated, would hate to puke this up D: Watery mouthfeel.

D/O- Points scored on the drinkability aspect, not the "overall" one...aspects evened out used for my score here. Made me burp a lot due to the high carbonation. If you enjoy this one, seek out the Potosi Steamboat Shandy, I found it to be much more enjoyable.

Tounge feels like I just sucked on a lemon. Heartburn like crazy. Lay off the lemon zest

Not terrible, might say "yes" if offered it again, but I certainly wouldn't choose it for myself.
