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

If I am being honest, there was a point in time that I loved this. Over time, less and less so though. It used to come across as a very nice citrus shandy. Refreshing and quaffable. Now it seems artificial and fake. There is also an aftertaste that the entire Leinenkugel brand seems to have that I do not like and have a hard time stomaching.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

Once again, a big disappointment. I guess I am just not into these lemonady flavored beers. I'm with Myotus on this one. I will drink it in a pinch, but anything is better than Bud Light.
