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. Poured cloudy yellow color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Complex lemon citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a refreshing beer.

Ratman197 (10224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2014

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Draft... Murky yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a pleasant reproduction of lemon meringue pie. Light to medium-bodied with busy carbonation. Lots of lemon meringue in the flavor, but far too sweet. Finishes crisp and lemony, but again, way too sweet. This is lemon soda. I was hoping for more acidity.

Drake (9012) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours a murky yellow color with a thin frothy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of tart lemonade and a faint but of crisp malt. The taste is pale malt, vanilla, lemon sweet mostly but with a hint of tartness. Thin-medium bodied, creamy, high carbonation. It is what it is.

GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
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.

Dogbrick (8688) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
Sample at the Big Tap In on 04/20/2013. Pours a hazy straw color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and malt. Light-bodied and very carbonated with flavors of lemons, grain and ginger. The finish is sweet with a fruity aftertaste. Slightly below average overall.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Nose is lemony with mild honey and malt Tastes like a more malty Mike’s Hard lemonade with more bitterness.

shrubber85 (7982) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle. Sweet-sour lemon and barley malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with large head. Light sweet-tart lemon and barley malt flavor. Not bad - not too sweet but would have like a stronger malt flavor.
