1.5/5  rDev -53.8%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

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.

A - bright, almost clear yellow.
S - Reminded me of lemon gatorade with ginger dropped in it.
T - See above. No hope profile whatsoever. Very sweet, is this beer or a zima?
M- Syrupy like cough medicine.
O- I'm open to different types of beer, but this is not very good. I actually had trouble finishing it.

look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours a hazed straw color with a white head that does not last long. Looks like a wit of sorts. In the aroma, ginger, lemon bathroom cleaner, and cheap beer. Mostly lemon in the flavor but definitely a ginger snap. Scarce bitterness, spent grain, semi tart and full of citrus. Oily, slick texture with aggressive carbonation. Not like a dry cider, but getting there. Tenacious is one way to describe this beer; a few others would say its not as good as many craft and import shandies (also known as Radler in Germany and other parts of the world) . Still, wildly popular and just one variety of shandy from this brewer/lemonade stand.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep, cloudy, yellow color with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is contains a lot of fruit and spices, light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: There starts out very sweet with flavors of lemon, orange, ginger and honey. Then some breadiness comes in from a light malt character. The hops presence is very mild and brings a little balance. The after-taste is sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Flavorful but not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, very mild kick, decent representation of style, I found the spice and fruit flavors too intense, not a beer I would want to drink again.

Pours the same type of color as the other two traveler shandies. Cloudy blonde with amber highlights. Thin head.

Lemon peel, honey and ginger shine on the nose. A hint of wheat too.

Ditto for flavor. Lemon, honey and ginger. Very mellow.

Finishes clean enough and without a syrupy malt beverage aftertaste.

A fairly decent shandy. I'm not big on the style otherwise.
