COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin beers have been an American tradition since the pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock while Oktoberfest beers have been brewed in Germany since not long after Prince Ludwig got hitched in 1810. Now Terrapin is “carving” out our own special brew by combining these two great styles into a unique PUMPKINFEST beer...This Side Project has all the complex maltiness of a great Oktoberfest lager with the delicate spiciness of grandma’s fresh baked pumpkin pie.

Formerly Terrapin Side Project Pumpkinfest.

not much aroma - faint toffee malt. nice darker pumpkin/orange pour. taste was more of an Oktoberfest than pumpkin - which is fine. slight earthiness with slight spice at end; better as it warms

Atom (1617) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2014
12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is cidery and of lots of spices. Taste similar to aroma with some bitterness kind of watery. Not my thing.

John25 (913) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber. Cinnamon spice and pumpkin aroma. The taste adds graham cracker. Very thin texture with a light body. Basically a standard pumpkin ale like all the rest, but with the potential is there to make this one bigger and better.

Draft at the Filling Station in Miami. Pours orange amber with an off white head. Sweet malty base, some breads sweetness, moderate pumpkin spices, and a malty sweet finish. Not bad.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle purchased at Wegmans.Pours a delicious amber color with mild headwith little carbonation but still leaves a tickle on the tounge. A decent pumpkin beer would totally have this again.
