look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: 3.5 Pours lightly golden with 1 finger of head that receded over just a minute. Resembles a wheat ale, wee so slightly darker in color.

S: 3.25 Lemon up front. Heavy citrus all around.

T: 3.75 Lemon up front, and in the middle, and after. Hints of lime, orange, grapefruit. Very sweet yet subtly tart. Great balance of flavors.

M: 3.75 Nicely carbonated. Very drinkable on many levels.
O: 3.5 The appeal to this beer is by far it's drinkability during the hot Summer months. A delicious beer that goes down smooth and leaves you wanting more. A great session!

Not that we're in July and I've been sampling shandies from a variety of brewers I feel like I'm getting a hang for the style. Just like any other shandy traveler looks, smells and tastes like beer and lemonade. It's the balance of beer and not too sweet but just sweet enough lemonade that makes Curious Traveler, and all the other Traveler brews for that matter, just right for me. It's not too beery, it's not too lemonade-y. It has a nice body, not to thin or slick. It's the middle of Goldilock's shandies.

LOOK: Pours cloudy yellow with a milky look. Like what you might expect from a carbonated fresh lemonade. The only difference is a white silky head that leaves lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Hardly any aroma at all. Faded lemons and grains, but that's barely there.

TASTE: Quite lemony and refreshing. Fredh squeezed lemonade flavor, with ample malty sugars. Tart lemony notes last the duration of the drinking experience. Like a hard lemonade, but with fuller body and carbonation from the malts. There is a faint vegetal bitterness but remains hidden behind layers of lemon. Kind of reminds me of lemon pop ice cream.

FEEL: Light bodied, light spritzy carbonation. A little tartness lingers into the wet finish and is rather nice.

OVERALL: A top notch shandy, smoother than many imported versions, this is smooth and drinks like a refreshing summer dessert. I'd look for this again sometime.
