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.

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. great level of sweetness, great style to add the spice to. great stuff.

gabbama (203) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Pours orange copper with a vanishing white head. Spiced, malty nose with some pumpkin. Flavor is malty with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other pumpkin pie spices. Nice medium body with fizzy carbonation. Lightly sweet and spiced finish. I like this one because the pumpkin is noticeable but not overpowering.

kramer (5499) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle, RBWG 2010. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small fizzy white head. Heavily spiced nose with a little natural smelling pumpkin. Allspice & nutmeg mostly over a sweet caramel maltiness. The flavor is actually pretty bland for all the spice on the nose. Lightly sweet caramel malt finish with some lingering spices. Light to medium bodied with a little clingy sweetness. Not bad, but probably a little lacking in pumpkin flavor.

Bomber from Frugal MacDoogal’s in Nashville. Pours a clear orangish-copper color with a nicely formed whitish-yellow head. Aroma is pumpkin pie for the most part. Spice level is just about right. Flavor also has the spice level dialed in pretty well. Mildly sweet caramel malt, pumpkin, and pumpkin spice. Smooth and fairly creamy on the mouthfeel with medium-full body. A very nice and well-balanced pumpkin beer overall. Not quite the best pumpkin beer I’ve had, but up there. I killed the entire bomber fairly easily.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Poured 10/2009 This one pours a crystal clear orangey copper with a thin ivory colored head. Clove and all spice in the nose. Maybe cinnamon. Sweet caramel malt too. First sip tastes like pumpkin pie. Sweet caramel malt, lovely mix with the spices, sweetish finish with the sweet spice in the aftertaste (allspice, cinnamon and ginger). Sweetish finish and creamy body. Terrapin does it again. They manage to strike the right note while combining two disparate styles.

glennmastrange (2488) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of cereal and roasted, light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with notes of brwon sugar, nutmeg and cooked pumpkin. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with no lcing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear orange/tan. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic, bitter and a little sour. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Smells like pumkin pie and tastes like a bowl of raosted oats.

Served from bottle into a Euro pint. Pours a nice copper color with a one-finger white head that quickly subsides to a minimal height. There was slight lacing evident throughout. The aroma was comprised of pumpkin and cloves. The flavor was of pumpkin, sugar, and spicy. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was not that bad for a pumpkin-style ale. Actually I typically do not like them, but this one was quite enjoyable and is by far my favorite pumpkin ale tried thus far.

bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. poured a deep gold/amber with a cream head. nose is pumpkin, spices, nutmeg, and more pumpkin. nice on the palate, pumpkin is not as strong as the nose, nutmeg, spices, and a pumpkin finish.

This beer pours an orange brown color with no head, which seems to be typical of pumpkin beers. Aromas of pumpkin, malt, cinnamon, and other spices. Taste is pumpkin with a nice malty backbone. Not as subtle as some pumpkin brews, but not intense either. They should turn this into a every year seasonal.
