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.

Pleasant pumpkin pie spice aroma with some Christmas spice and cinnamon in there as well - quite nice - mostly downhill after that. Light off white head sits atop the light copper pour with some floaties speckled about. Flavor has a brief pumpkin pie spice splash, but settles to a bland vegetable like flavor. Has a bit of pepper in there as well and as it warms, tastes similar to spiked hot cider. The aftertaste is not unlike some malt liquors - slighlty fusel alcohol-like. Started with high possibilities.

This may be the first pumpkin lager that I’ve had. I’m not sure. It’s so much like most of the rest of the pumpkin beers. The body’s a deep gold with a touch of orange. The head starts big then fizzles out quickly. It smells of nutmeg and allspice and whatever one usually tosses into a pumpkin pie/cake/cookie/etc. Tastes that way, too. Okay, meaning as good as the others.

Rating number 3 X 666!!!!!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle: Hazy copper/orange color, light white head and nice lacing. The nose is herbal with some squash, allspice and clove up front. Towards the back a little bit of molasses. The flavor has a nutty nutmeg note along with the pumpkin and spice. The finish is a bit light and thin. Missing the maltyness that would really push this towards a respectable lager.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a thin off white film. The aroma is sweet, with mild hints of pumpkin and way too much spice. The flavor is like the nose too short on the pumpkin and too heavy on the spices. Soft and a touch thin, this became tough to finish.

Bottle. Orange pour with a short, fizzy tan head. Strong clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in the aroma along with subtle pumpkin pie notes. Taste is mellowed spices with pumpkin pie, light brown sugar, faint caramel and grass/straw notes. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more pumpkin pie notes, spices, light caramel and brown sugar.

I remember watching the brewmaster spent hours opening all those cans of Libby’s pumpkin pie filling for this beer back in the mid 1990s. Sure enough, today’s Pumpkin lager is just as good as it was back then. Pours a slighly hazy light amber with a nice white head. Aroma is cinnamon, citrus, tasted malt and of course pumpkin. (all it needs now is whipped cream). Tastes more of lightly roasted barley malt and some cinnamon/spices which is present in the finish. A nice light lager beer with a touch of Thanksgiving dessert.

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Orange, off-white head. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice - the usual pumpkin ale suspects. Flavor is sweet and spicy, again pretty much what you would expect. Not bad, but I don’t know that I’d get it again...

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Thin white head with a dark, cloudy body. The aroma is fairly spicy with nutmeg and mace. Also the pumpkin and soem earthy must comes out. The taste has a funky tartness under the pumpkin. It is hard to get past the tartness. A lame lager beer and probably the worst pumpkin beer I have had. Thanks Secret Santa.
