A- Has a very cloudy, pale, yellow color with a foamy head to it.

S- Strong smell of lemons and wheat.

T- When they say brewed with lemonade Leinenkugels means it. Strong lemon start with a wheat beer finish, very enjoyable.

M- Smooth and quite refreshing actually a nice thirst quencher.

O- Easily drinkable, great taste, wish it was available year round. Perfect beer for summer. I've had it tap, bottle, and can equally enjoyable each time.

Never been a fan of any beer that's been kitchenized or yuppified in any way. As I get older and more open minded, I've been going out of my usual amber lager affinity and trying different things. Never thought in a million years I would enjoy anything like this but I really enjoy it. Perfect on ice sitting on the porch on a hot afternoon, or relaxing on the deck with the pork shoulder in the smoker. Light, refreshing citrus that goes down smooth and is very pleasing on the palate. Very mildly tart but not bitter, and not too sweet. I'd still rather have a Lynchburg Lemonade but this is a fantastic alternative to the high alcohol, heavy beers I usually stick with.

A hit of lemon followed by a little sweetness and rounding off into a light wheat taste. A great beer.

Taste Rating in Words: It's an afternoon at the lake, a summer day floating in the pool, an afternoon running through the sprinkler.

Never heard of this beer until I moved to Omaha. Some guests left it behind at my hotel so I decided to try it. My first drink made me smile. It was not what I expected when drinking a beer. The bubbles reminded me of a soda pop, lemon and orange. Easy to drink. Found just in time to kick off summer.
