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.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 This is an excellent fall pumpkin beer. More of a Pumpkin than an Oktoberfest. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pumpkin. Tastes is the same as the nose..Delicious ! If you see this one..do not pass it up...Buy it !

tectactoe (3081) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle: Copper-amber body, completely opaque & almost muddy. Small, gray head fades quickly to a thin collar. Aroma is heavily spiced; nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a bit of toasted malt. Flavor is basically the same, heavy on the nutmeg & cinnamon with undertones of allspice, clove, white pepper. Thick, malty base, finishes with notes of heavy caramel sweetness, toast, toffee, & a bit of chunky yeast. Slightly sticky body. Decent at best.

This is a great pumpkin beer that has all of the spices and pumpkin bits. Good finish. Dark color.

beerbomb (207) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2015
older bottle-aroma is cinnamon, a little clove and nutmeg, pumpkin juice, and nice dark bready bock background-balanced as if it was baked together--flavor is full bodied bock with cinnamon, smoother spices, and vegetal background - if you think you’ll like a good bock with smooth, mild, toasty spices, this is it...

kaser (3791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Orange pour from bottle at home. Very nice aroma - pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. I think held this too long. Tastes a little off after 4-5 months - still can tell it is a decent brew

ordybill (539) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Definitely smell the pumpkin and cinnamon along with some malt. Appearance- Pours a murky orange color with a small white head. Taste- The pumpkin and spices come through with the flavor. a very nice Pumpkin beer. Palate- A medium bodied beer with little carbonation. Overall- Another good beer from Terrapin.

BillWyce (817) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours clear orange-amber with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, specifically pumpkin and nutmeg, maybe allspice too. Medium body with a mild finish. Flavor matches the aroma, with notes of pumpkin and the above-noted spices.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at Edley’s in Nashville. Pale orange color with minimal head. Decent pumpkin aroma on top of a rather basic beer. I’m kinda surprised by the high ratings for this one. It’s good and drinkable, but nothing stand out or special.

Good tasting beer. Faint pumpkin pie aroma. Nice clove / ginger finish. Too bad this is seasonal. I'd drink it more often. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. One of the better Pumpkin beers I’ve had in the last few years.
