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.

12 oz bottle, via Ofortuna. Pours a clear orangish gold colored body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices, most prominantly nutmeg and allspice. Lighter notes of cinnamon and pumpkin. Flavor is pretty much all spices, and what pumpkin is there seems pretty artificial tasting. Quite heavy on the cinnamon. Mouthfeel is thinnish with very fizzy prickly carbonation. Texture is just shy of sticky. Overall, this just seemed a little shallow and lacking in complexity. All spice and not much else.

Nice golden color,small white head that had a short hang time then faded leaving little behind.The aroma is the usual pumpkin spice with a bit of a pumpkiny smell some maltiness but faint and little more then that.The flavor was okay with a decent spicy side coming through right away some faint hints at pumpkin and a bit of some malt but mostly there is just spice and little else.Itís kind of hum drum but itís also worth trying atleast once.

12 oz. Bottle, Pumpkin and spice aromas. Dark orange body with head that went flat quick. Milld spice and pumpkin flavors but the was a heavy malt presence that didnít give me much flavor at all. Mild pumpkin beer heavy on the palate, maybe to much mash in mine.

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 (6355) - 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.

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!
