COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Driven by wanderlust and a desire for discovery, the Curious Traveler™ set out to explore the globe. Always fearlessly inquisitive, he relished opportunities to befriend other travelers and to experience cultures he had only previously imagined. He sampled their wares, their foods and most importantly their libations. Some were good. Some not so good. Others were downright dangerous. Many years into his travels, his pace slowed on a particularly sweltering day. He sought refuge in a small pub to escape the oppressive heat. Before he could even finish wiping his brow, the bartender handed him a glistening glass of ale. The Traveler took a liking to the invigorating lemon shandy concoction. “Quite a refresher!” he said gratefully. The Traveler has never stopped exploring – in fact, he’s on the road this very day. Somewhere. Only one thing has changed: he now makes sure he orders a shandy everywhere he goes.

Bottle gift from SJ. I wasn’t crazy about this. Notes of ginger, lemon and some other spice. Body was thin, I didn’t think it was well-balanced.

Tap at Hunan #1. Thanks to the rep team. Cloudy yellow pour. Weaker white head. Nose is mild sweet lemon dessert. Taste is very cloying, medicinal, sticky. Not enjoyable. None of my semi beer nerd friends enjoyed. I don’t think this is a style to make "happen" for the summer.

Curious Traveler Shandy has a thick, white head and a very milky, opaque beige-yellow-golden appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of a strong lemon-lime smell, with a background of white bread. Taste is the same, with lots of sugary sweetness and tartness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Curious Traveler Shandy finishes tart, sour, sweet, and refreshing. Overall, this is a very good fruit beer, and I think it’s worth checking out. RJT

On tap @ Caffrey's NJ. Pours a cloudy yellow color with one finger of white head. Aroma is all citrus (mostly lemon). Tastes like lemonade, with some citrus and floral hops, and fruity malts.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark golden with a sticky frothy white head. light lacing. Aroma has some Lemonheads candy aroma, pleasant but artificial. Flavor is along the same lines as the aroma with plenty of tart lemon candy sweetness with a touch of sour to balance it out. Some yeasty notes round it out in the back end. Mouthfeel is slightly pasty. Refreshing to say the least.

On tap. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin fizzy head. Aroma of artificial lemon and not much else. Taste is really mild, mostly lemon with a little malt. Refreshing, but not a beer by any stretch of the imagination.
