THOUGHTS: A good deal lighter than most pumpkin beers in body, but not light on flavor. Way better than I was expecting. I thought they just made a lager to be different, but it was really a great tasting beer. Incredibly easy to drink. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light to medium, orangey copper with a large, off-white head that pretty much fully diminished. The aroma had light grain; moderate caramel; slight hops; and mostly sweet pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter and sour; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and slightly bitter and acidic with a sort of short duration. There was caramel malt, sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and light and crisp hops. The light to medium body was slick and creamy with fizzy carbonation. It went down so easy.

Bottle from CBB. Brewing a Kabocha beer so figured I’d drink some pumpkin beer as well. Served in a lager glass. It pours a copper-orange color with minimal head but a nice pumpkin like color. Big coriander & clove aroma with possibly mild nutmeg. Decent flavor a bit nutty, pumpkin flesh and pretty balanced spices with cinnamon and allspice. Medium bodied with a bit of a chewy mouthfeel. Maybe it’s because I’ve been eating kabocha all day but I do get that pumpkin flesh flavor and solid squash nuttiness. I like it. It is much more subdued than your average US pumpkin beer though I think.

Pours pale straw white with a little haze. Aroma is pretty strong bananas, wheat. Flavor is pretty light, not much going on. Kinda boring, but not bad.

Pours a mostly clear orange golden with a fine off-white head that quickly disappears. I like the nose. Some pumpkin, good spices, nutmeg, some clove, hint of candied ginger. Taste is spiced with clean light pumpkin notes and a nice dry finish with some lingering nutmeg pumpkin spice. Palate is bright and med- body. A good intro pumpkin beer.

Nearly clear gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, extra ginger, caramel, lemon and light bready yeast. Flavor is caramel and a surprising toast/cereal note up front, then a pretty large dose of earthy and sweet pumpkin, toffee, a little raw, doughy yeast and honey-like sweetness. Medium body, chewy to oily entry, medium carbonation and oily finish. Decent overall, good malt, pumpkin and spice notes, but as it warms it gets a bit messy with some higher alcohol notes coming out.

I'm surprised this is only rated a 3.14. It's a pretty darn good pumpkin ale. Aroma is not anything special. Color is a bright orange. Initial taste is crisp and refreshes the palate. Light on the spices, but enough to let you know it's fall. I could definitely drink it all night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is a nice mix of pumpkin and spice. Flavor is again a nice mix of pumpkin and spices. Not as heavy as some pumpkin beers but I guess going with a lager is what they were trying for. This will satisfy your pumpkin beer crave.

From bottle poured into a pint glass. Sweet, but spicy. That pretty much all there is to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices including nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon as well as pumpkin. Pours orange colored with a thin white head and not much lacing. Starts with decent pumpkin flavor and the above spices intermingling. Finishes smooth with a very light body and the spice lingering on the palate. Decent pumpkin.

Nice but not so great in taste. The aroma was fine and very thin to drink. It had nice golden looks too.
