Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass.

Appearance: pours a 2"+ white pillowy head that drops at a moderate rate leaving faint lacing. Very cloudy yellow color (pretty much like lemonade).

Aroma: strong lemonade aroma with a bready malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: very light and watery with a dry finish.

Flavor: lemon, light barley sweetness maybe a hint of hops in the finish.

Overall: decent for what it is. I would think that Fresca or Mt. Dew fans would enjoy this beer.

Way too fruity; beer or lemonade, not both.

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.
