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.

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.

crossovert (9957) - 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 isn’t 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 isn’t bad.

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.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is slightly hazy orange with nice bright white head, aroma has nice sweet notes of pumpkin, biscuit, and toffee, some nice hints of cinnamon and clove, touch of caramel as well in there. Taste is much heavier on the spice but has notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg for sure, hints of toffee and caramel, some sweet bread notes along with a touch of pumpkin, finishing slightly bitter, dry and spicy. I liked this!

DocLock (8798) - 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.

3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Slightly murky orange with a huge foamy tan head but it dies quickly. Sweet pumpkin syrup and candy smell, a bit artificial. Taste has some rye, cardamom, soap and some sweet peach. Too candy-like.

BVery (8656) - 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 (8316) - 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.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours mostly clear copper, slightly cloudy, with almost no head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, citrus, pumpkin. Flavor is a weaker version of that- somewhat watered down with a really light body. Thin mouthfeel, cinnamon/nutmeg finish. Could be better if the flavor matched the aroma.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a rather clear orange with a medium sized white head that falls off rather quickly. Smells of sweet canned pumpkin, spices, and caramel. Medium bodied, sweet, but with a weird off flavor. Toast, malt, a good amount of graininess comes through quickly before being overtaken by more spices and pumpkin sweetness.
