Not much to say about this. Was nice and refreshing but still has the shandy thing on the name that gives ideas.

12oz bottle from Timmy. Pours a clear Amber color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of Pumkin spices, caramel, and cardboard. Taste of overly spiced pumpkin seltzer water! Grosse!!

degbert (1301) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a murky brown-orange with no head. Nose is spice, vanilla, and a touch of fruit. Taste -- well, it passes my personal pumpkin beverage test, there’s actual pumpkin taste to it, as well as some sweetness, nutmeg, brown sugar, and cinnamon. You can taste the squash, though, and that’s what counts. It works.

Pours from a bottle like it can’t make up its mind between being an amber and a copper. Aroma is an immediate fake spiciness. Flavor is very lackluster and metallic, like licking the inside of a can of pumpkin pie filling. Not a good beer.

Poured from 12oz bottle. A nice refreshing take on the pumpkin style. Light in body but good spice addition. Something to lighten the mood on a chilly fall day. --you've been Dubbed.

Draft. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like sweet pumpkin, sweet orange citrus, light spice, and and heavy bready malt. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like spice, orange, malt, and pumpkin pie.

Appearance is light brown, clear, and with a moderate white head. Aroma: Intense cinnamon and nutmeg dominates any malt character Taste: Strong cinnamon and nutmeg with a light squash taste, light caramel malt, and enough bitterness to balance it all. Mouthfeel: medium with a slight creaminess and moderate carbonation. Finish: leaves a slight nutmeg and bread malt flavor on the tongue Comparison to Leinie Harvest Patch Shandy: Traveler aroma more cinnamon and nutmeg, with Leinie more nutmeg and clove. Body is lighter on Leinie and that makes the spicing feel more prominent than Traveler. Traveler has a richer malt, more pumpkin pie like flavor. Leinie is probably better for a longer drinking session, while the rich malt and spicing of Traveler is best suited for a shorter session. I would give Traveler the edge if you’re trying to find the closest thing to a pumpkin pie flavor

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Been putting this one off for too long, likely because a pumpkin shandy sounds terrible (but I will try to keep an open mind). Enjoy-by notch is simply on "DEC". So I’m good, right..? Mostly clear orange amber color, with a bigger off-white head, fizzing loudly, and quickly fading back into the glass. A couple small chunks floating in the body. Few bits of bubbly foamy lace left behind by the retracting head. A small amount of head is left behind. Pumpkin spice is definitely evident in the smell, but the nose is straight baked apple pie, which is kind of surprising. Is this supposed to be an apple-type beer? Not bad initially, and it kind of works with the fall spices. The baked apple flavor is a better hold to the spices than the citrus that I was expecting up front... Very mild citrus if any, drinks much more like an apple-flavored ale. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, kind of a spicy bite, and a dry finish. Light to medium body. Soft, mildly creamy carbonation. Pumpkin spice and apple works better than whatever I was expecting, but overall this is not that fun at all, and not easy-drinking. A challenge to get through; it quickly becomes a chore... Gets worse as I go. More pumpkin gourdy vegetable flavor comes out, which is not fun. Couldn’t finish.

Pour from bottle is brown to golden in color with a light white head, Aroma slightly sweet with pumpkin and spices, taste is sweet and very pumpkin pie flavored, finish is also sweet but sharp with hints of citrus.
