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.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle and served in no-nik pint glass: Amber hue with lots of floaties, small but lasting frothy head and okay lace. The aroma has all the basic requirement you would expect from a Pumpkin Ale, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, meaty pumpkin, light roast and caramel and some biscuit too, not over the top on the nose. The taste is spice driven with sweet malty background and a brief hint of herbal hops. A bit minerally and leathery as well. The mouth feel is moderately carbonated with a slick oily component, starchy and chalky finish. An okay version, nothing bad but nothing that makes it standout from the crowd.

Pours orange in color. Great notes of true pumpkin and the backing spices on both nose and mouthfeel. A real and true pumpkin beer. Fantastic!

Thanks to BeerFMAndy for sending this out as an extra. Served in tulip. Pours an orange-copper color with a really nice white head and quite a bit of spotty lacing. Nose is quite a bit of sweet pumpkin pie with a bit of cinnamon in the background, though mostly nutmeg. The taste is, again, some pretty sweet pumpkin with mostly nutmeg and a bit of clove. Medium body with a tad bit of spice. Drinks pretty well and is a nice pumpkin beer all around. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-10-2010

Bottle received as an extra in a trade. Thanks! Pouts deep ruby/copper, fluffy off-white head. Nose is clove, nutmeg, light vegetal matter, some nice caramel malt and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is Sweet caramel maltiness, a nice blend of warm spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, light ginger) and a bit of vanilla and pie crust. Really quite nice- like a richer pumking that isnít quite so extract-esque.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle: † Reddish amber, moderate white head, foamy, spotty lacing. † Shoebox like pumpkin nose. † Soft nutmeg and cinnamon. † Sweet yet subtle pumpkin pie flavor on the tongue. † The spices are not too heavy, but provide a nice balance and donít make this one cloying as many others can be. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Sweet malty finish. † Had I tried this blind I may not have said its a Pumpkin Ale because while it has some of the spices, its not very heavy or strong. † Seems to have more Pumpkin like flavor than the associated spices commonly used in these beers. † Fairly tasty. † Thanks to Skyview for the bottle!

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours clear orange with white head, aroma of clove, cinnamon, slight pumpkin, hint of sweet cream. Taste is a bit too spice driven, notes of cinnamon, clove, other spices but covers up any pumpkin taste, goes into some caramel, and finishes sweet. Good start, but doesnít deliver.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2011
12oz bottle on sale at Archers. Pours an ruby toned body with a thin white head. Pumpkin, squash, and carrots with a mild spicy background. Ginger, pumpkin seeds, and all spice. Lots of ginger, anise and more spices. Incense, spices, dry and thin with a light linger of spices to finish. One of the better pumpkin ale Iíve had.

brokensail (15600) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 22, 2010
A: The pour is a clear, dark, amber color with very minimal head formation, just a thin ring of tan head. S: A lot of great spice smells that are certainly reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Good nutmeg and cinnamon as well as some actual pumpkin. T: Nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice start this one off providing an almost liquid pumpkin pie flavor. Good sweet and starchy pumpkin character, too. M: The body is medium with a low to medium carbonation and a fairly smooth mouthfeel overall. D: One of the best pumpkin beers I had this year (or ever, I suppose). Tyranena makes another good beer.
