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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 Re-rate. Smells like pumpkin pie. Great. Taste is pretty good. One of the thicker and more beer-like pumpkin beers Iíve had. Pretty nice I think.

Decent body to this one is what stood out the most. Much better than the majority out there, aside from Dogfish Headís version. Pours a nice deep amber hue and the spices of pumpkin pie dance through my nose. A bit too sweet on the palate, but drinkable. Sad to see that the foam quickly clears soon after Iíve had my first sip. Hard time finding the hops in this one where the spice dominates. I understand it is lightly hopped, but perhaps a bit more to help balance out the sweetness.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Pours gold with a white dissipating head. Smells of pupkin pie and pumpkin spices. Tastes of spices but not as blended as Iíd like. Nothing but the pumpkin spices really shine through on this one.

12 oz bottle. Clear golden tea with a big frothy fading antique-white head. Spiced apple and lemon candies. Doesnít taste like a lager. Unripe pears, orange and cinnamon. Smooth body with mellow drying. Enjoyable brew.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Hazy dirty copper with no head. Aroma is dominated by spice. Nutmeg, allspice, clove and not much else detectable. Flavor has a strange citrus/orange fruitiness going on, before the spice takes over. Again afetr the spice hits not much else going on. Rather thin and watery.

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle. Huge aroma, pumpkin (obviously) spices. Pumpkin taste fairly mild, though the spice combination is huge. Keep an eye on the alcohol in this one, its big!

EithCubes (4842) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Bottle. Spicy. Pumpkin, cinnamon, citrus, brown sugar, cloves, salt. Clear ornage pour with medium carbonation and a medium-sized, lacing beige head. Taste is moderately spicy (add allspice and nutmeg to the list) pumpkin pie, a little grainy. Medium, slightly oily body. The citrus and coiander/cloves (the Wit notes, essentially) are the interesting tones here. Just a touch of citric sourness and light bitterness in the finish and beyond.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Light apple cider color with tiny particals floating around. Smell of malt, cinamon, some ginger and pumpkin. It has to warm up a little to enjoy the pumpkin smell. Taste of cinamon, clove, sweet caramel, soem ginger and the pumpkin. A nice bitterness and the spice lingers in your mouth for awhile. I didnít like this beer last year but I do this year.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Bottled. Beer is slightly hazy, medium-amber colored with an average-sized, frothy, white, mostly and rapidly diminishing head. Pumpkin pie spicing takes the forefront in the nose with heavy notes of ginger, light-to-moderate notes of nutmeg and cinnamon; Malty with a light note of toasted grain, cookie and caramel; Hoppy with a light note of lemon zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Light miscellaneous notes of cooked pumpkin, and vanilla. Smells like a well-made pie. The flavor is... oh... damn... the flavor disappoints. Itís moderately sour, lightly bitter, moderately sweet with a long, lightly bitter, lightly acidic/sour finish. Not a lot of spicy retors. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is less-than-lively. I just wish like heck the flavor was as attractive as the nose.
