COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin Lager is brewed with pumpkins in the mash, spices added during the boil, and lightly hopped. The rich specialty grains and lager fermentation combine to produce the taste and the texture of pumpkin pie.

Pours a cloudy butterscotch color with white head. Pumpkin pie aroma. Pleasant test...cinnamon, clove, ginger and flaked barley. but this is more spicy than pumpkiny. Medium body.

Poured a clear amber color with a thin head that faded quickly. Aroma is slightly skunky with pumpkin and sweet malts. Taste has lots of pumpkin with nutmeg and cinnamon. Very interesting with the lager yeast flavors. The balance is decent. Too much carbonation, however. Overall decent!

12 oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured an orange/rust colored body with a smaller foamy of white head. Aroma is more heavy on the spices, all-spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, metallic notes, wet bread and some odd pumpkin as well. the body is very thick and full and not a quick sipper on how much it fillsup your mouth and throat. Flavor actually seems to be astep down from the aroma, wet spices dominate, all-spice, nutmeg, hint of chocolate for some reason, followed by bread, cinnamon and pumpkin. Not a top 3 pumpkin beer but would suffice in a pinch.

My favorite pumpkin style beer. The perfect combination of spices and pumpkin. Not too much pumpkin too make it bitter but the spices also aren't too heavy. It's a great balance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good beer that is a touch to sweet for how lite it is. Aroma is pleasant with pumpkin,spice and a touch of sour. Pour is golden in color to lite amber with a small white head. A very easy drinker that is not over spiced like so many spiced beers can be.

12oz bottle from Binny’s Plainfield. Pours a clear, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is clean pumpkin pie spices with a light pumpkin note and a lightly sweetened pils malt. Flavor is similar. Light malt sweetness with a mellow pumpkin note and a nice, light pumpkin pie spicing. Finishes clean and smooth with a light, balanced spicing. Medium length aftertaste following a light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really well made lager. Very clean and easy drinking with a nice pumpkin pie spicing that stays balanced and never gets over-the-top. Nothing crazy, but enjoyable.

Both pumpkin and spices come through in the aroma and taste without overpowering, helping make this a better than average pumpkin beer.

12 ounce bottle. Clear, light amber color, practically no foam, no lacing. Pumpkin spice aroma. Light bodied. This is a tame and pleasant pumpkin beer that’s extraordinarily easy to drink but not very dynamic. There’s hardly any bitterness and there’s no metallic aftertaste, which seem to be a common downfalls of pumpkin lagers.

Taster at Kenwood Liquors. Dry and spicy in nose and palate. Pleasant beer. Color is slightly dark copper, nearly brown. I got more of the pie spice than any pumpkin pie. But this still would work for me as a pre-dessert beer.

Sweet inviting aroma, with a successful pumpkin flavor. Light copper color with a minimal white head. I did not expect such a strong pumpkin flavor from this beer, but I am pleasantly surprised. Yeah! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
