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.

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.

GT2 (8270) - 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.

Drake (8030) - 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.

Bottle from Capone’s. Nose is lemony with mild honey and malt Tastes like a more malty Mike’s Hard lemonade with more bitterness.

Dogbrick (7634) - 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.

shrubber85 (7314) - 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.

355ml bottle. Sam Adams brand. Hazed pour, fizzy white head. The smell si pungently lemony. Flavor is lemons, some spice, herbs, bittersweet finish, slight biscuit. Its not terrible not not great.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2014
3/17/14. 12oz bottle from Liquor Barn. I enjoyed this straight from the bottle but I’m sure it looks just fine. Smells surprisingly a lot like beer. Some pale malts, mild lemonade aspect, sorta like fake lemon candy. Sweet lemon candy flavor, not too offensive, pretty refreshing in all honesty, but not something I could take for long. One bottle is good.

BVery (5969) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Tap at Haskells in Excelsior, MN. Hazy bright yellow pour with a small white head. Lemon lime nose. Light carbonated mouthfeel. Taste is a refreshing lemon. Good summer brew.
