Beer Review: Traveler Beer Company Jack-O Traveler Shandy

I’m not that big on the shandy but I am big on pumpkin beers.  I look forward to fall because of pumpkin everything.  Yeah I know.  Whatever.

Anyway, recently reps from The Brooklyn Brothers reached out to me so they can send me a sample of Traveler Beer Company’s new and limited Jack-o Pumpkin Shandy.  Hell, it’s free and pumpkin so of course I said yes.  I’m never going to turn down free beer.

When my package arrived I didn't think much of it and threw the beer in the fridge so I could do my job and review it for you faithful readers.

Let me preface my review with a disclaimer.  I want my pumpkin beers to taste like pumpkin pie.  I know some of you don’t and that’s cool but that’s what I look forward to in my pumpkin beers.  And holy shit did this one pumpkin pie the shit out of their pumpkin beer.  Here is my review:

Brewery:  Traveler Beer Company

Beer:  Jack-O Traveler Shandy

Style: Pumpkin beer

ABV: 4.40%

Louisiana Availability:  Yes.  Limited seasonal.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy dark orange with a nice foamy, white head.

Smell: Strong aroma of pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice) as well as slight hints of a  lemon citrus.

Taste: You ever tasted pumpkin out of the can?  Yeah. Tastes just like that but with all the pie spices mixed in- cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice all there.  There is a lemon citrus bite that adds to it though.

Mouthfeel: Mice medium body with medium carbonation.

Overall: This is one of the best pumpkin beers I have had.  It has all the pumpkin pie taste that I look forward to in a pumpkin beer with some sort of added….something.  Not sure what it is.  It’s refreshing.  Maybe the whole shandy aspect is adding that.  Not sure. Go grab some though! 

Score:  4 out of 5 Buddhas  photo 4buddhas.jpg
