P- Thanks to my buddy Todd Gates for this one!

A- Clear amber orange in color with a one finger head that is slightly foamy with a decent lacing on the pint.

S- clove and nutmeg come through in the nose and light malts.

F- clove, nut meg and pumpkin flavor.

M- carbonation and pumpkin. smooth light and refreshing

O- I am not a shandy fan but this is one of the better ones I can put up with to drink. not bad but not great.

I love pumpkin beers and even though it's still hot where I live it feels like fall to me with a wide selection available right now. Unfortunately this one let me down. It is a shandy and the label does not hide the fact that it isn't going to taste like pumpkin ales so I can't accuse Traveler of false advertising. It certainly isn't bad but there's far too much lemon taste in my opinion. It tastes like a sweet lemonade swallowed with a mouthful of weak pumpkin pie. The pumpkin pie taste is definitely there but it's competing too much with the lemon. It was definitely worth trying because all pumpkin beers deserve a chance but I'll pass on this one next time I'm in the store.
