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.

deaconmike (391) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Hazy brownish orange with fizzy offwhite head. Aroma is malt and pumpkin pie; you can smell the sweetness and the spice. The taste is also sweet and follows the nose. Pumpkin pie spice lingers on the palate for a while. The body is fairly light and the carbonation is soft. Overall, a good pumpkin beer.

Pours a clear copper color with a white creamy head. Aroma of pumpkin spices-cinnamon, cardamon, with caramel and hint of pumpkin. Well-balanced flavor with pumpkin spices, toffee, and some pumpkin. Quite nice.

mlane76 (35) - Albany, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottled from warehouse package...obviously spiced but still very hoppy...not as bitter as other Terrapin beers....smoother, but still leaves a clean palette like an IPA

Appearance was nice, head was nice, initial mouthfeel and palate were nice. HOWEVER. If you don't like tartness in you pumpkin ale, I suggest you look somewhere else.
