Here it is, a little over a year since I became Curious and now I am becoming Tenacious.

From the bottle: "Ale brewed with Lemon Peel with Natural Flavors, Honey, & Ginger added"; "Quite a refresher!"

Once again, this series has a propensity to foam up in an explosive manner and so one's pour must be somewhat gentle as a result (unless you like beer foaming up and out of your glass). Four pours later, the bottle was empty and the glass held two fingers of big, dense, foamy, bone-white head with excellent retention. Color was a murky yellowish-orange (SRM = > 7, < 9). It may be subliminal suggestion, but I swear that I really could smell lemon, honey and ginger on the nose! It was like smelling a Hall's cough drop. I do not mean that to be funny, but that is of what I was immediately reminded. Mouthfeel was full, bubbly and the flavors were all there, present and accountable. I think that they could dial the honey back some, though, as it was getting in the way of the lemon tartness, especially and even muting the spice of the ginger, rendering it sweeter than I would prefer. That said, of the three of the Travelers that I have had, this would probably be the one that I would reach for on a hot summer's day. The finish was crisp and refreshing, semi-dry, let's call it. Not bad, but not precisely my cup of tea, either.

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.
