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.

Pours a medium amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose has lots of cinnamon, cream soda and a trace of pumpkin. Palate is very malty with some brown sugar, not overly sweet, touch of big red gum with a spicy pumpkin finish. Meh.

A very solid pumpkin! Decent copper pour w/out much of a head & leaves a little lacing. Aroma is subtlety full of fall spices. Taste is very well balanced & finishes w/ a good amount of spice which lingers on the palate. Good stuff!

I am not a huge fan of Pumpkin Beer. Too often I am left wanting a glass of milk to go with the piece of pie I have just drank. This beer does an excellent job of balancing the pumpkin flavors within the beer. Pours murky brown with thinnish white head. Scent is allspice and malts. Mild pumpkin spice flavors blends well with light malts and hops. Medium to Heavy body. A best in show Pumpkin beer. Bottle - Dakota Blue - Atlanta, GA

Dr_Fellini (273) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle to glass. Light amber color with a thin off-white head. Pumpkin sweet smell with lager yeast notes. Flavor is sweet with too much lager character that lingers in the finish. Not my favorite pumpkin by any means.

Bottle at Ritz Carlton, Orlando, 20th November 13. Quite sweet, some cinnamon, nutmeg and thin pumpkin flavour, with other spices. Not bad for a seasonal tipple, nicer by an open fire probably
