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.

Amber color with a thin head that was gone by the time I made it to the couch.

Smells like pumpkin pie spice and weird pumpkin sweet lemon. Tastes like it smells. Way too much spice for my liking yet not enough to cover the weird lemon.

Seems like a winning equation: if beer + lemon = good and beer + pumpkin spice = good then in conclusion beer + lemon + pumpkin = good. But it doesn't. It's weird and icky.

I was curious. Now I am all set.

Bottle provided by the brewery, my first from Traveler Beer Co.

Pours a cloudy brown in color with a pretty white head.

The aroma is of lemon and pumpkin spice.

The taste is pretty dreadful. Pumpkin spice sweetness and not much else. Reminds me more of soda than beer. Almost sickly sweet. I'm having a hard time drinking this.

The mouthfeel is decent.

Overall this is a bad beer. More like an alco-pop.
