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.

Tounge feels like I just sucked on a lemon. Heartburn like crazy. Lay off the lemon zest

Fruity with a wheaty aftertaste. Lemon up front with a grainy/malty aftertaste. Nothing robust, just good flavor. Good relaxing shandy.

Aroma is very lemony and wheaty, with soft floral highlights and a grainy malt backbone.

Flavor reveals lemon underlying a wheat and bready malt backbone. Not as tart as lemonade, but more lemon essence focus. The backbone is somewhat watery.

Smells of lemon meringue - crisp lemon and light wheat flavor. Great summer brew.

Great summer beer. Superb alternative to bud light lime. Tastes like fresh squeezed lemons mixed with beer. If you like Shandys then you'll like this.
