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.

crossovert (11424) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 12 oz bottle. Brewed not a week ago. It pours a clear orangeish gold with a foamy off-white head htat leaves some rings of almost ghost-like lace. The smell isnít that great in imo. It is pickly and vegetal. It is just the wrong spice/veggie combo for me. The flavor is better. It has notes of cinnamon and spice. The pumpkin is subdued and the malt gives a crust flavor. Really tastes like Pumkin Pie, not exactly, not even close but as close as I have tasted in a pumkin beer. The added hops are nice. I am not a fan of this beer style, it seems like it is just some novelty that grew out of proportion but this isnít bad.

Serviceable pumpkin beer, served Labour Day weekend t the brewery. Light colour,lacey with almost no head. Spicy pumpkin and cloves. In the style and better than some pumpkin beers, though not the best representative. OK drinkability, must be in the mood to finish a half pint.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Yellow/orange pour. Small creamy white head. Aroma has a roasted pumpkin mixed with pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is overly spicy. Pumpkin takes a big backseat to the spices. Not bad, but just too much spice.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2010
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Bottle @ home. Hazy, reddish orange appearance with a small off-white head. Rich, toasty pumpkin, vanilla, huge nutmeg, cinnamon aroma. Quite rich pumpkin, spicy cinnamon/nutmeg, light vanilla flavor. This is actually a re-rate on a 18 month old bottle and is still tasty.

Not overdone on the spices, but really not all that exciting either. A sweet lager, malt forward with moderate fall spices. Thin to medium bodied but crisp. OK.

deyholla (10220) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Poured an orangish amber with minimal head. Aroma is full of pumpkin notes with a sugar sweet undertone. Flavor begins pumpkin, but sweet flavors tend to over power by the finish. Not bad as pumpkin beers go.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Dark straw toward copper pour with nose of pumpkin puree, spice, and a slightly sweet, natural pumpkin flavor with spice and malt. Fairly rich palate and a good balance. This one is decent.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber orange pour with a very small head. Aroma is pumpkin and lager yeast. Decent palate. A bit of spice in here as well. Pretty solid fall beer.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Light amber. clear, average white head. Aroma and flavour deliver mild pumpkin with light caramel and light spice. Kind of a middling profile all around, slightly earthy. Okay.
