Lemon can be a bit overpowering. But refreshing nonetheless definitely a decent beer.

it looks just like the soda ''squirt''. a pretty good cross between lemonade and beer. a good summertime beer but i wouldn't drink more than a few of these.

The beer pours a nice white head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a cloudy lemon yellow. Looks like a pretty good shandy.

The beer smell is a bit unfortunate. It has a strong lemon note that resembles more of the candy lemon than actual lemon. Wile it isn't actually bad for the first few sips, it can get distracting after a while. The honey notes save the smell and are a nice contrast to the lemon.

The taste has the same notes as the smell. A candy lemon taste that is saved by the honey. The lemon is a bit too strong in this brew and hurts it a bit.

The feel is unfortunately not as refreshing as expected. The beer leaves a sticky feeling instead of refreshed one The carbonation does some good but the end doesn't do it for me.

Overall, an okay shandy and one that you can probably feel okay about skipping. That being said, just stick to the Grapefruit Shandy, which is much better.

Not a bad beer for drinking in the hot sun or after being outside. Very refreshing, but not as refreshing as Great South Bay's Blonde Ambition...
