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.

Thanks 17thfloor for sharing the bottle! Pours a lightly hazy golden brown with a thick pillowy off white head. Aroma is spicy and very pumpkin, more so than many of the other pumpkin ales. Lots of cinnamon and ginger in there. Flavor is again, very pumpkin, and lots of sweet pumpkin pie sugars. Nice maltiness in the finish, like the crust of the pie. Just a hint of bitterness from the hops lingers. Medium to full creamy body and a soft pleasant carbonation. Really nice dessert beer, very true to the pumpkin spice.

12oz bottle 10/19/09 (Binny’s Plainfield)-Pours a medium orangish amber iwth a small white head. Aroma of spices and pumpkin. Taste of the same with the pumpkin comin through on the back end. This medium bodied brew is definitely one of the better pumpkin beers and another KICK ASS brew from Tyranena.

Bottle. What an elusive beer, this is the first time I’ve ever seen it in the store! Pours a deep orange color with a nice lingering head. Flavor is soft bready malts, residual sugars, pumpkin, and some nice pumpkin pie spice to top it off. Just the right medium body thickness and carbonation to make this one a winner. Definitely one of the better pumpkin beers out there along with the likes of Pumking.

2009 Bottle - Thanks Guerde! - Pours clear amber with a small off-white head...aroma is nutmeg and ginger, sweet malt and more pie spice...flavour is much drier than expected, grainy pumpkin spice, struggled to find actual pumpkin flavour, many pumpkin beers that are better than this...

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Single bottle buy from Binny’s Beverage Depot in Orland Park, Illinois: It poured a deep orange body with an off-white head. The aroma was spicey with the usual - clove, allspice, nutmeg, cinamon - and had an underlying malty sweetness. The flavor was much the same, except that the spices got a bit bitter near the finish. Okay for what it is.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-brown color with a minimal head. Pretty solid pumpkin beer, lots of pumpkin pie spice but balanced out by a rich malt backbone. Nutmeg and cinnamon tastes abound. Faint smoke maybe? One of the better WI pumpkin beers I’ve had.

SHANER4 (485) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle 12oz. - Poured clear dark copper color with small white head that quickly fades. Aroma - spice, cloves, pumpkin and some cinnamon. Flavor - Initial clove/ginger taste finishing with pumpkin and cinnamon taste. Palate - Medium bodied beer with below average carbonation. Finish is kinda dry and has little aftertaste. Overall - Drinkable brew and tastes more like 4% abv. instead of 7.5%. Pumpkin spice was a little much in finish!
