COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. What an elusive beer, this is the first time Iíve 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 Binnyís 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 (4917) - 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 Iíve had.

SHANER4 (483) - 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!

monkeychugg55 (941) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
"Painted Ladies pumpkin spice ale??" Pours a clear ruby-copper with a small bone colored head. Aroma of pumpkin and light spice with some light grain and a bit of grassy hops. Flavor is similar and tasty. Subtle, but enjoyable. Medium to light bodied, with soft carbonation, and a bit of bitterness.

tmoreau (2799) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Sampled at Famous Liquors Fall /Oktoberfest Tasting in Lombard, IL. and later, at Lunar Brewing Co.. A 12oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a deep, gold/amber color with a modest, off white, bubbly foam head and good curtains of clingy lacing. The aroma was a little sweetness and notes of ripe pumpkin and pie spice, with ginger as more noticeable. The flavor added a hint of cinnamon and a moderate hop bitterness, with some dryness to the finish. Somewhat similar fare, but more body than most seasonal pumpkins Iíve sampled.
