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.

16oz pint on tap. This is pretty weak, I think I might give up on pumpkin beers. Weak aromas, not much going on, very faint spiced pumpkin. Extremely watery mouthfeel. Faint flavors of pumpkin, toasted malts, allspice. Best thing about this beer is the deep amber color. Pass

Completely unremarkable. Other than a deep amber hue, this beer has nothing to offer for 183 calories. It’s watery, with no aroma whatsoever. Big disappointment for the price (in the Northeast). I’ll have a Sam Adams Octoberfest instead.

Terrapin Pumpkinfest has a thick, cream-colored head, a bit of lacing here and there, a mostly clear, deep orange/brown appearance, with a slight haze to it, and lots of streaming bubbles. Aroma is mainly of malt, but it gets spicier as the beer settles down. Flavor is of sweet malt, a mix of spices, and a touch of pumpkin. No bitterness, here. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Terrapin Pumpkinfest finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Pours a dark amber with a finger of head. Nose is a tonnnn of pumpkin pie spices, almost like a potpourri, a bit bready, pumpkin. Taste matches nose, heavily spiced, some pumpkin, sweet malt. Body is a bit watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from craft ale house. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has plenty of nutmeg, cinnamon, light pumpkin flesh. The taste is spice, pumpkin, average for the style but fine.

Rated from notes taken 28 Dec 2012 -- Terrapin has a pretty strong offering in the realm of pumpkin beers. I could drink this any night in fall/winter. I’m a big fan.
