I thought it smooth, great taste without being too strong. Very drinkable and wasn't over hopped to the point that it was bitter like so many craft beer. To many beers make you want to gag from it bitterness or tasteless like the national brews. Traveler was just right.

Looks like yeasty river water. No head whatsoever. It burned out in seconds with an audible clamor. Poor.

Smells of soured lemonade, aspartame sweetening, wheat malts, herb sprigs, and lemon peel. Maybe a bitter lemon soda vibe, too. Not far from what I was expecting.

A tame tartness described as being the product of lemon peel, lemon soda, tangy wheat, and yeast nuttiness. Definitely fruity, and not overpoweringly so. Nor is it detrimentally sweet or tangy. The tanginess does ride a bit, but it's manageable. Pretty benign. An applause for a showing of maltiness with a pale wheat bent. Light smack of toast, but it's very muted behind citric acidity and feigned citrus. Orange-y, too. Perhaps, that's the aspect I'm not agreeing with as much. A certain mid-palate zestiness leaks through with the implication that there are minor spice notes. I pick up hints of coriander and mace.

Drinks with uneven bursts of hidden carbonation. Peaks kind of high, at times. The rest of the beer is a body of wetness. Slight stickiness, but mostly clean. Not labor-intensive, but pretty drab.

Not a bad-tasting shandy on the market, but it definitely reeks of mass appeal. Averaged for anyone and almost everyone. It doesn't speak to me.
