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.

Refreshing. Great for hot, sunny days.

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

Great, easy drinking summer beer. Usually not a big fan of overbearing fruit taste, but while the lemon is dominant, it works.

Pretty decent shandy - used to like this way more than I do now. Maybe because I'm more into pale ales and IPAs now. If you're looking for refreshment though this is a solid one to pick up.

This is a good summer beer. Complex? No. It basically tastes like lemonade. But, there is just enough beer flavor to balance it out and it is very refreshing in the summer heat. Great for cookouts or working in the yard.
