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.

[Bottle] Pours slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Aroma is nice--spices and pumpkin with a little bit of grain. The spices (mainly clove and cinnamon) are also evident in the taste, but the pumpkin is not as much. The grains are more noticeable in the taste and especially in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best pumpkin beer I’ve had, really went downhill after the aroma.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle pours a hazy amber orange body with a small offwhite head. Standard pumpkin beer aroma of pie spices. Taste features some genuine pumpkin favors which blend nicely with the spicy hops and pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, and clove. This lager stands up well to most pumpkin ales in my book.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 9/10/1999. Color is like they said it would be an orange/amber with good carbonation a ok head. Aroma is very spicy and hides the pumpkin scent if it ’s there at all. Taste light, spicy and mildly bitter. It starts with a light body that goes down crisp. Finish is a malt/pumpkin flavor overwhelmed by coriander and nutmeg. Ok to drink by there is just a bit too much spice.

Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2007
light gold color. aroma of pumkins and nutmeg spice. Not much pumpkin taste, the nutmeg and spice flavors kind of overwhelm. Not bad for a lager style.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Poured a usual light orange color, weak initial head, no retention or lacing to really speak of. The aroma was pumpkin and light grass / corn notes. The flavor was mostly like a pumpkin pilsner (honey, grassy) with significant citrus notes. With warmer temperatures, the pumpkins came on stronger. Mouthfeel was a touch acidic, finishing with only gentle spicing zing in the mouth. A pretty ho hum pumpkin beer, although not bad.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of spices, pumpkin, and slight cookie dough. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin, spices, and grain. Mild traces of hops, thin brew.
