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.

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 don’t 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.

12 oz. bottle shared by birchstick- thanks again, Jon! Pours a clear copper color with a small eggshell-colored head. Aroma of nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and pumpkiny vegetal notes. The flavor is more pumpkiny and vegetal and less spicy, though they’re still there- sweet malts and toast, too. Light-bodied, with mild carbonation and a smooth, mild mouthfeel. Seems a lot less than 7.5% ABV.

tap - Pours clear amber with an off white head. It smells of spicy pumpkin pie. The flavor is sweet and spicy. It’s medium bodied and overall a solid pumpkin ale. Good brew.

12oz bottled 09SEP11, thanks to coharahawk for the bottle. Clear amber orange with a small beige yellow head, fading to a thick ring and tattered film rather quickly. Pumpkin and toasted malts dominate, followed by a fair amount of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Maybe I’m making it up, but I feel there’s some melted butter in there as well--not diacetyl--more of a butter rum type thing. Flavor has a stronger butter rum character. Still has some spice as well as toasty malts. Light sweetness midway through, and finishes semi-dry. Bitterness peaked at a 2, while the alcohol was masked well--didn’t realize this was 7.5%. Medium body with low carbonation. One of the better pumpkin beers.
