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.

Obvious aromas of nutmeg and allspice. Subdued hop flavors with doughy chewiness in the long finish. Crystal malts definitely lend a hand as well in the finish. There isnít much you can do with this style.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2006 Blind rating. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel), with notes of nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Unpleasant sourness hurts this one.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2006
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.

This is OK, but Iíve had mixed results despite multiple attempts at trying it. Weaker taste than I want for what it is. Weaker color than I want. Spicy, and a little yeasty, and there is a little pumpkin, but just not that great. Would only drink one.

[Bottle] Pours slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Aroma is nice--spices and pumpkin with a little bit of grain. The spices (mainly clove and cinnamon) are also evident in the taste, but the pumpkin is not as much. The grains are more noticeable in the taste and especially in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best pumpkin beer Iíve had, really went downhill after the aroma.

slightly cloudy orange with some floaters under a small white head. heavily spiced(cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) pumpkin aroma. flavors are the same. light bodied. flavors are less potent than the nice aroma.

Palidor19 (2963) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2007
decent, it has some very good points with some definitive flavors of pumpkins, but its a tad on the tart side at the end of the finish, malts are good with a bit of caramel, definitely a seasonal

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Pours a hazy light orange color with slight amount of foamy white head. Aroma is cinnamon apple and cream - like a cinnamon home flavor yankee candle (according to my wife). Flavor is very pumpkiny but does not have the heavier maltiness and mouthfeel that a pumpkin ale would have. Strong cinnamon presence. Overall, so so. Aroma better than taste.

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 doesnít hold up very well against the spices, particularly the nutmeg. Not bad, but I wouldnít say it reminds me of pumpkin pie so much. Not sweet, by the way.
