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.

On tap at Rockyís Sub Pub in Jeffersonville, IN. poured in a Tyranena pint glass. Pours a dark orange/amber color with a decent white head and good amount of lacing. Aroma and taste is an amazingly nice balance of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and spices. Medium body with a creamy texture and low carbonation and a great finish of spices that sticks around awhile. Easily one of the best pumpkin ales out there!

Bottle from fear025. Clear golden pour with nice tan head. Aroma is lots of allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is tons of spice with a hint of pumpkin. Well executed for this style.

Bottle. Orange/brown pour with off white foamy head with good lacing. Smells of pumpkin and spices. Tastes of sweet pumpkin with good spice flavor. What a pumpkin beer should be. Best pumpkin beer iíve had yet.

12oz bottle shared. Pours orangish color to reddish brown with yellowish head. Decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is spice as in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove and pumpkin. The flavor was much better than anticipated. The spices are evenly balanced and there is a good flavor of pure pumpkin in this.

From bottle. Pours a ruby amber with a medium beige head and some lacing. Aroma is malt and nutmeg. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices: nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. Medium body with medium carbonation and alochol masked adequately. Pretty good seasonal.

Had this at the 2012 Twin Cities Beer Festival. Nice pumpkin, nutmeg and spice scents. Taste is similar to the scent and not over powering, want more of this one.

Bottle c/o Chaney. Thanks Brandon! A: Ahh, tis autumn. This ale is a sunset amber hue. The one inch of head recedes very quickly, leaving virtually no lacing whatsoever. S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, raisin bread, sweet malt T: An ok tasting brew, with autumn spices very evident throughout. There is not a sturdy enough malt backbone to support this heavily spiced beer. I do appreciate that the cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. flavors taste authentic, as I really donít care for beers that take the "natural flavors" route. M: Relatively thin bodied with a lower than average carbonation level. D: An OK beer, but not something I would buy.

Poured into a tulip glass. Light foam that dissipates to a ring almost instantly. Very good looking clear burnt orange color. The scent is heavy pumpkin spice and biscuit. The taste is heavy spice, sweet, malty with light pumpkin. medium mouth feel with nice carbonation. This is one of my favorite pumpkin ales. I could drink a few which is rare for pumpkin ales. Highly recommended.

Amber pour, mostly white head. Wow the spices and pumpkin come through very nicely in the nose, with some nice yeasty qualities and bready notes. Pumpkin bread! Nice spiced pumpkin bread. Really enjoyable.
