Clear chestnut color, with minimal head. Aroma is nutmeggy and gingery with earthy undertones as its genre seems to dictate. All pretty standard, but flavor is almost too clean and attenuated. $3

Clear amber pour wit garnet tint. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Very light nose of mild pumpkin and spice.
Light medium body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is good, but rather weak. Light pumpkin, light spice (so light I can’t tell what it is), a hint of bitterness and a subtle sweetness that proves a very good balance. The finish is a slow fade of spiced pumpkin.

12 oz can served in tulip glass. Large frothy head slowly thins down to a film and heavy lacing. Aroma is alot of herbal spice. Taste is some pumpkin but mainly gourd and some spice such as clove. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter. More herbal and gourd like than most pumpkin beers. Medium carbonation and medium bodied beer. Overall good pumkin type beer. Good combonation of squash like flavor and modest spicing. Very enjoyable for the. Season.

12oz can pours a clear amber with some frothy, white head. Nose is what you want, what you expect, spice, brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, some definite root vegetable, maybe more sweet potato than pumpkin. Flavor is a bit weaker, but still nice, floral, some root veg, some brown sugar, then spice, pepper, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Dry finish. Well done.

Top: medium foamy white cap with sparse lace.
Base: fine haze on amber.
Palate : medium fuller bodied with milder carbonation. Average plus finish.
Taste: reflecting aroma, mild mellow pumpkin spice feel. Peppery clove with soft brown caramel sugars. Not too sweet. Mild side bitterness.
Other notes pleasant to see that was not overdone.

Pumpkin beers are make or break for me. I guess this is closer to make. Aroma is mostly pumpkin with a hint of cinnamon. Pours hazy Amber with thin beige head. Flavor is cinnamon, pumpkin, and spice. Decent, but eh.

A simple marriage of two fall styles Oktoberfest and Pumpkin beer work well together. Light bodied pumpkin spiced Marzen with malt backbone. Terrapin delivers as promised with Pumpkinfest.
