Sampled tonight on 7/19/14. From The Traveler Beer Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a pilsner flute glass.

Pours a hazy straw-yellow in color with a thin white head that doesn't last a real long time. Spotty lacing is seen but not a lot. Some sediment is found in the bottom of the bottle. Good amount of carbonation with streams of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is lots of strawberry with a hint of lemon. The taste is of strawberries with their sweetness and the lemon zest with the tartness. Good mix of flavors with a bit of grain from the ale. Full bodied with good taste. Different than a 'Red's Strawberry Ale' as that is good also. A good summer brew.

$ 1.69/12 oz bottle at Vintage Estates in Boardman, OH
Bottle best by October (No year) at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of strawberries
Head large (5 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing poor – occasional small island of small bubbles
Body light yellow, cloudy
Flavor of sweet strawberries followed by a little bit of non-specific sourness. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, syrupy, soft carbonation.

Not a particularly good shandy – too cloying and not very refreshing. Any of the orange, lemon, or grapefruit shandys are more refreshing.

A: Thick cloudy yellow with lots of carbonation. Small half finger head that takes some time to go down. Leaves no lacing. To be honest, I'm surprised that there's no red coloring (fake or natural).

S: Powerfully fruity. The strawberry smells almost fake and masks any sort of potential lemon notes.

T: To my amazement, you can pick out the lemon. The sweeter and tart notes of the strawberry come through and linger nicely. Somehow it tastes a little fake, but still natural if that makes sense. There are some sweet wheat and biscuit notes too.

M: Full bodied and wonderful. Just enough carbonation to tingle the palate but without being harsh. Awesome. Literally can taste no alcohol whatsoever - that could be dangerous.

O: People bash on it sometimes, but I enjoy it. Maybe it doesn't taste like artificial strawberry shortcake. That is the difference that sets Traveler apart from Lienenkugel's - You can tell they use better quality ingredients (that are actually brewed in the beer and not mixed in after). Maybe it's not the best beer ever, but it's crisp and refreshing, which I enjoy. Try this one out.

Very light and refreshing. Cloudy and light lemon in color. Smell is very faint, of lemon, strawberry, and straw. Taste is very mild. Slightly watery feel, slightly sweet, hint of lemon and strawberry. Great for a hot day and maybe some spicy grilled food. Tempting to pour it over ice as it is more of a hint of lemonade flavor than beer flavor.
