In reviewing this beer, I will describe my experience in how I even came to have a pint of it sitting in front of me. The bar I was at had just kicked the Southern Tier Pumpking. The Travelers was the replacement. They gave me a taster. It actually tasted pretty good.

Don't fall into that trap. One one ounce swallow is akin to getting a sip of Hawaiian Punch. It tastes pretty good. It's when you get a mouth full, then a throat full, and then a belly full of this stuff, you realize the mistake you made.

It's sickly sweet and fizzy. It's almost like a soda. It smells pretty good, and it looks pretty good. But, the flavors are cloying.

I wish I had looked it up on BA before I "fell" for the taster offered to me.

Hey, there's a market for Boone's Farm too, so this will appeal to some people's tastes. Unfortunately, not mine.

I am surprised this works as well as it does. A bit of lemon really complements the pumpkin spice. This one is over the top pumpkin flavor, but may be their best shandy.

Drank from a 12 oz bottle. First thing that popped out was the nice and pleasant smell. Overall not a bad pumpkin beer, good taste with subtle hint of lemon. Not very bitter or hoppy, in fact not at all. Good body and not too strong of an after taste. This is a decent beer and worthy of being on this website.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Reddish brown with a thin white head.

Smell: Hops, lemon, pumpkin spice, cinnamon

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to light bodied. Taste of malts, lemon, cinnamon and pumpkin spice.

Overall: This is by far one of the best pumpkin ales I have had so far. New favorite for me!

12 oz bottle with a BB date notch at Dec. 2014.
Spicy and bready aroma.
Tastes like a pumpkin-nut muffin ... not a bad thing but with a light body, some lemon and prickly high carbonation, this is too much like a wine cooler.
