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.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells of pumpkin, spices, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay, but I think I prefer pumpkin ales to pumpkin lagers.

A mediocre Pumpkin style lager with slight hints of spice and pumpkin on the nose but the entry was subtle and genuinely not as rich as I had thought it might have been. Drinks easy but was left wanting some more of everything.

12 oz bottle from Wilburs. Orange and clear with minimal head. Pumpkin, spices, and light hops with a smooth lager feel. Light body and easy to drink.

12oz bottle pored medium orange with white head. Nice aroma of spices, cinnamon and nutmeg and pumpkin. The flavor is a medley of spices and pumpkin. Decent overall flavor, the spices are dominate but not overpowering the pumpkin .

Hazy orange pour with non existent head. Aroma is dominated with spice and sweet pumpkin. High hopes. Taste is sweet with a slight hint of bitter at the finish. Overall weak carbonation and light body lend to an underwhelming but decent pumpkin beer

Red-orange pour with head that disappeared before I set the glass down. Aroma is pumpkin and spice. Taste is pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. Little medicinal aftertaste.

Pours yellow-orange and clear. Very little head. Strong pumpkin aroma, with some nutmeg, clove, and brown sugar thrown in. Taste is a bit of pumpkin, which doesn’t hold up very well against the spices, particularly the nutmeg. Not bad, but I wouldn’t say it reminds me of pumpkin pie so much. Not sweet, by the way.

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Faint aroma of biscuit, barley and spice. The pumpkin is hardly noticable. Amber appearance with a huge foam top. Creamy syrup, maple, spice and herb. Not very much pumpkin present. Overall, a decent beer at best.

Bottle
Aroma: Spices, all spice, hint of pumpkin
Appearance: Slightly cloudy orange/gold with short lasting white head
Taste: Subdued flavors relative to the aroma. Spice, slight pilsner bitterness.
Palate: Light body, although a bit heavier mouthfeel. Good carbonation making for a lively mouthfeel. Finish is dry, a nicely balanced between sweet and bitter.
Overall: Interesting take on a pumpkin beer, drinkable, decent flavors, and a great aroma.

Pretty good pumpers. Made with lager so it's not as lively in the younger but the pumps is strong and good spices. Pumpers like to pump. The Derricks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
