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.

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

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.

This is a "middle of the road" pumpkin beer for me. Not much spice, but nice subtle pumpkin. I do, however, prefer this to Oktoberfest brews.

Bottle from SL... hazy orange in color.... Nose of spices... flowers and light pumpkin notes... Taste is a dull flower, hay, spices, pumpkin. Not bad more of an Oktoberfest meets a pumpkin beer. Nice body, easy to drink. Decent pumpkin brew

It’s fine, but I’m just not crazy about pumpkin beers... Very sweet, plenty of pumpkin spice - but is it just me or do these beers end up tasting pretty metallic in flavor??

On tap at GABF 2013, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin aroma, taste is a bit too spicey, light body.
