The Painted Ladies Annual Fling celebrates the renaissance of downtown Lake Mills. Although named for the restoration of the many Victorian storefronts, some of the more adventurous women-folk added a playful twist and dressed as, well, painted ladies. Inspired by these bold and spicy women, we brewed Painted Ladies, a pumpkin and spice-infused amber ale. This fall, make sure you enjoy a fling with a few Painted Ladies.

OK so this was a great bier. Super tastey, spicey and fruity all the way through. A orangeish mahogany colour with a nose full of spice. Pumpkin and cloves on the palate with generous apple pie and other spices all the way through. Super happy tyranena produced such a gem for this fall!

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2009
12oz bottle... how did I not already rate this? Pours a clearer glowing orange color with a sudsy fizzy white head. Aroma is malty with light spicing and a touch of pumpkin. Flavor is much the same, a little more corse in the malt, earthy, nothing too special here.

12oz bottle from 17thfloor. thanks gerritt.... pours slightly more hazy than the previous southampton pumpkin ale with a more dense very light beige head.... nose comprised up of pumpkin and lightly spiced... flavor has much less pumpkin than anticipated. earthy and grassy with light spiced notes and a subtle pumpkin flavor. sweet through the middle and finish. finishes on a slightly bitter note.

12oz bottle. Pours a slight amber with a small, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of malt, spice, pumpkin, cinnamon, dirt, and some fruit. Taste starts off with a large amount of sweet fruit, and spice. After a few seconds, a decent amount of pumpkin comes through. Has a backbone of slightly toasted malt. Has a fair amount of sugar too it, but it doesn’t detract. Lingering taste of spice, pumpkin, and some apple. Mouthfeel is light, and very heavily carbonated. Finish is all pumpkin. Easy to drink, tasty, but too carbonated. Aside from that, it’s a winner.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle from Guerde. Pours dark amber with very little head. Aromas of roasted caramel and pie spice. Medium plus body with strong carbonation. Flavor is kind of squash with pie spice. Finishes with lots of spice flavor. There’s a detectable pumpkin in the end - unless the spice is messing with me.

TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2009
12 oz bottle sample at the Flossmoor taping courtesy of Arnie (Flossmoor, IL). Pours a deep dark copper, a small offwhite head, laces a bit and clings to the corners. Aromas are pumpkin, cinnamon, pie caramel sweetness, some vanilla, sweet. Initial is thinner side of medium bodied, sweet pumpkin, spicey cinnamon, vanilla, caramel. A bit sweet further into the palate, light coating, vanilla, faint to no bitterness, light soapiness. A very nice more sessionable pumpkin seasonal. Finishes lightly sweet and spicey. Very nice and a solid drinkable pumpkin ale overall. Some people find these to be a gimmick, but I generally enjoy comparing them and this is certainly one of the better ones.

Good pumpkin ale. Pours an opaque copper gold, no head. Aroma is clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Flavor is slightly bitter. Palate is creamy and rich but slightly astringent.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Pours to a deep mahogany body with a tall, foamy dense beige head. The aroma is spicy with ginger and allspice with a lot of pumpkins. The flavor is heavily pumpkin with some ginger and nutmeg. I love the heavy amount of pumpkin. The palate is medium bodied and subtly sweet.

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2009
From the bottle, pours almost orange with a thin white bubbly head. Pumpkin pie spicy aroma. Taste is also like pumpkin pie, with an extra spice kick at the end. Thin, but good. I’d say one of the better pumpkin ales out there.
