Although it's an artificially flavored lemon, it is much better than the shock top shandy and all the rest of the shandys that are artificially flavored.

Good taste for a summer day. Fruitful and crisp

Very lemony. It's got to be well over 100 F for me to touch this. Two gave me a fuzzy headache...

The more I drink it, the more I like it. The sweet lemon is refreshing but doesn't put me in the mind of toilet bowl cleaners. A good mix of lemonade and wheat beer.

Obviously it's lemony. Perfect for a hot day - my reward after mowing the lawn! only complaint is the lemon flavor is a little chemically on the palette. Tastes a little like lemon "pledge" smells.
Avoid cans - bottle is noticeably better

This one is ok. I don't think it's as bad as others say. It is probably a little too sweet, but I think that's just the style. It tastes a lot like Beer-Minade. It's not a traditional beer, but it's still nice for a hot summer day.
