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

Fruity with a wheaty aftertaste. Lemon up front with a grainy/malty aftertaste. Nothing robust, just good flavor. Good relaxing shandy.

Aroma is very lemony and wheaty, with soft floral highlights and a grainy malt backbone.

Flavor reveals lemon underlying a wheat and bready malt backbone. Not as tart as lemonade, but more lemon essence focus. The backbone is somewhat watery.

Smells of lemon meringue - crisp lemon and light wheat flavor. Great summer brew.

Great summer beer. Superb alternative to bud light lime. Tastes like fresh squeezed lemons mixed with beer. If you like Shandys then you'll like this.

Easy going. Lacks body. Too fruity in the beginning.

Great for a few beers on a summer day or if you're just looking to kill a 12 pack.

Summer party beer for sure! IMO the INITIAL taste of the lemon doesn't taste the greatest (not bad) with me. After taste is good.

Hands down the best shandy I've had. Smooth, easy drinking, refreshing and flavorful. Just fine on a hot afternoon. Ignore the poor ratings this one gets. If Founders or Bells or Sierra Nevada or whomever brewed the same beer people would love it.
