Has a nice inviting smell. It's a refreshing beer, and would be a great transitional beer for those who aren't into heavier beers. The ginger is a bit overpowering and takes away from some of the flavor of the ale. The lemon is very strong too. I thought the honey would balance it out but it's still very potent on the other two flavors.

Pours a cloudy orange, like a ruddy hefeweizen (the wheat beer foundation shines through), and with substantial off-white carbonation. No lace, though.

Nose is spicy ginger, with a touch of lemon citrus. Not extravagant, but appealing.

Flavor is dominated by the ginger infusion, but with touches of smooth and sweet honey and some lemony citrus. Body is fittingly light, and this proves to be quite drinkable. Not a terrible shandy, and surely quite refreshing on a hot day.

More head than curious traveler but duller in color and just as hazy. Smells liked pickled ginger, lemon peel, and coriander. Ginger really comes through. Tastes like whispy ginger wheat beer. Light body with champagne like carbonation which hurts the throat after a couple of swallows. Semi-sweet grain with nothing really to balance it besides carbonation cutting up your lungs. A one trick pony that only showcases the ginger flavor which gets real old real quick.

Unlike other shandys this one is refreshing for the first sip only, it then gets syrupy and harsh from the carbonation and ginger flavor. Sweetness lingers making you want another sip but the pain in your throat keeps you away from sipping it again.

Tenacious Traveler Shandy has a fairly thick, soapy, white head, an opaque, wheaty-orange appearance, lots of fierce, streaming bubbles, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of a spiced candle and possibly bread. Taste is very spiced (not hot), and one is met with intense ginger, some clover honey, and sweet bread. Mouthfeel is full and heavy, and Tenacious Traveler Shandy finishes sloppy, sweet, rich, and spiced. Overall, for what it is, it’s really well made.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down rather quickly, leaving a small patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of ginger are present in the nose along with some notes of lemons.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but there is slightly more balance between the ginger and lemon flavors as the ginger isn't nearly as dominant.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) on the palate and just about has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This shandy is quite similar to ginger ale soda, except that it doesn't have much sweetness and isn't quite as carbonated. It seems like it would make for a refreshing beverage on a hot summer day.
