Since summer is here, it's time to pound out a new round of seasonals. You might be asking yourself, wtf is a shandy? I pondered the same thing as I stood in line for a beer at a baseball game last summer. I was greeted with a beer that resembled lemonade. Today I shall be reviewing Hoppin' Frogs Shandy, which happened to be bottled this week (SUPER FRESH!).
Brewery: Hoppin' Frog
Beer: Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale
Style: Fruit Beer
Price: $7-$8 per 22oz bottle ($28 at progressive field, eek!)
This beer pours a light shade of gold with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet with lemon being the only thing I can detect. Flavor is lemony with a hint of maltiness, has a very sweet aftertaste. The body medium with light carbonation. Note to self, this beer goes down easy, especially on a hot summer day. A 22oz bottle of beer @ 7% ABV + dehydration from being outside is a bad combo.
Overall Score: 12/20
Final Score: 31/50
