12oz twist-off bottle at fridge temp poured into a pint glass. best before oct 29, 12.

pours out a very cloudy, very light straw yellow color with a nice big tight, pure white head. very good retention as well as some nice thick lacing. lots of carbonation bubbles rushing to the top as well.

the aroma is pretty much straight up lemons. a little one dimensional, but theres no second guessing and nothing really fake about it.

again, some nice authentic lemon citrus is all over this with some grains and maybe even a touch of wheat as well.

smooth, somewhat creamy, good amount of carbonation. mega refreshing! mega drinkable!

call me crazy, but this is a really solid summer beer. so chugable. overall, it is a bit one dimensional with the lemon and all, but il definatly be drinking more of this. great ABV as well.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Stella Artois Chalice.

A- an incredibly light lemonade colored yellow with a medium sized frothy white head. Despite the light color is exceptionally dark and murky.

S- Lemon aid. Very sweet and sour. Citrus notes of lemon. Has a malty backbone and a slight alcohol smell.

T- Has a pale sourness while being slightly sweet. tart with a slight pale malt backbone. Has a faint bitter finish. Leaves a malty aftertaste on the tongue. There is also a slight wheatiness to the finish.

M- Medium to high carbonation. Crisp and medium bodied. The carbonation takes away from the rest of the feel.

O- Very drinkable and very refreshing. Very session-able. The perfect delicious beer for people who don't really like beer.
