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.

Bomber shared with maniac and maltdawg. Pours a clear orange amber with small light tan head. Nose is solid pumpkin spices and flavor is fairly typical for the style. Sweet finish, but with lots of dry spicy finish. I’m not a real fan of pumpkin beers, but this one is pretty spot on.

pours a clear orange-ish copper with small head. aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. mouthful has a big pumpkin ale upfront then finishes more like a marzen. very interesting and a well blend of the styles.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 Bomber bottle: Pours a thin amber/orange color with virtually no head @ all. Aroma brings out the nutmeg and cinnamon. Malty flavor is spicy, creamy and has flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon, and a pumpkin pie after taste in the finish. Well balanced and smooth. If your going to be drinking pumpkin beers this is a good one to add to your list.

there a lot of flavor in the pumpkin end. too much adjuncts though. flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg. the malts are crisp and rich. another great beer

nick76 (4304) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2009
The aroma does have some pumpkin and spices but it also has some funkiness and adjunct malts. The appearance is amber with a medium sized head. The flavor is like the aroma but kind of boring. The palate is smooth. Overall this is just better than average.

Rustyham (1781) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2009
bright redorange color, glorious smell of nutmeg and cinnamon. flavor is light warm pumpkin and spices. overall very crispy and smooth, the light body could let me drink a few of these but the spices might not sit right. On tap at Abraxas Lounge, Miami Beach.

blklab2007 (2078) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 9, 2009
bottle poured a dark amber in color with a thin off white head. aroma has plenty of seasonal spices, malt, and some faint pumpkin. mouth feel is a nice medium with plenty of carbonation. flavor rocks out the nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. malt is rich enough to keep up but the spicing takes the show here. overall a rich fall time type brew.

PorterPounder (6033) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Pours a dark copper with a nice sticky off-white head. Spicy aroma with hints of pumpkin spice and cinnamon. Chewy flavor with lots of spice - pumpkin pie of course, some cinnamon and gingerbread. Back end has some ripening vegetable notes. Not overly sweet. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Very enjoyable.

Rich amber pour. small white head. Aroma has more pumpkin than pumpkin pie spice. Flavor has light spice, some pumpkin, light hops. Good pumpkin brew.

Strong spicy aroma. The beer has both the taste and the feel of pumpkin pie. Nice holiday beer.
