NOTE: I normally compare all other beers to Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale; there may be better out there, but many that are worse, "but that's not the point of a shandy... it is intended to be cleansing of the palate refreshing" and was graded on that basis.

This gives a 2 finger aromatic head that lasts.
The color is a cloudy light straw.
There is slight aroma from malt and hops and lemon
There is a really nice balance of taste from malt and lemon with a bit of hops which is more citrusy than Sierra Nevada.
This is more like a lemonade throughout the palate with a hint of malt and hops which offers a refreshing taste. Very refreshing during the summer.

True to its advertising it's a lemony beer. The look and smell are refreshing, the flavor is balanced but the lemon tastes like a cheap wine cooler, the feel is crisp and carbonated, overall it's a decent beer for a warm day. My friend brought these over so I can't really complain about a decent free beer.
