Fentimans Shandy beer soda

I guess since it's 70% de-alcoholized beer this forum is ok. Anyone try this? I saw it on the shelf at my Wegman's, and since my goal is to drink everything containing beer, I had to pick one up.
Chilling in the fridge, will try tomorrow. I don't have high expectations.

It's actually pretty good. Tastes a bit like lemony ginger ale. Not lemon lime like Sprite. You can taste the beer underneath, a bit like PBR. Zero head. Mouth feel is lightly carbonated low sugar soda, if that makes sense.

As a non-alcoholic beer, it would suck. As a specialty soda with a beer backbone, it's refreshing.

My parents don't drink beer ever, but I think they would like this, since they like funky beverages.

I liked it enough I might try some of their other stuff.
