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 purchased at Discount Liquors. Clear orange pour with a medium beige head. Malty nose with cinnamon and a bit of ginger. Malty flavor with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove and the slightest bit of an alcohol burn before a sweet finish.

10/22/10. 12oz bottle. Straightforward sweet pumpkin aroma and flavor with pumpkin and spices - definite nutmeg. Not bad!

Gift from awiseman01. Pours a warm amber with a frothy pale head. Nose is full of pumpkin and spicy nutmeg. Tastes sweet and creamy with slight pumpkin. Also some cinnamon with the nutmeg. Goes down very smooth, but the spices linger. Nice balance between the pumpkin and the spice makes this one of the better of its kind.

Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, and other spices. Color is a clear tan-orange with a small white head. Flavors of spiced malts and some sweetness from the pumpkin. Overall, it is pretty smooth, but nicely contrasted with various spices.

I picked this up from Archer Liquors in Chicago, IL, enjoyed during week 6 of the NFL season - Seahawks vs. Bears. This is a good one - a definitive fall beer. Appearance is a clear orange / pumpkin amber with a thin head. Aroma of pumpkin spices and roasty malts, but the pumpkin aroma dissipates after a couple of minutes. Taste is relatively creamy and not too carbonated, more of a malt backing with touches of pumpkin and spice. Good, enjoyable fall weather brew.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2010
amber pour with a thin head. aroma is malty, pumpkiny, light spice but it’s definitely there. more of the spice in the flavour. Not overpowering thought. Clove, nutmeg...medium sweet maltiness is very graham crackery with the spice. Light bitterness to the finish keeps it’s balance.

sbroome (149) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Hoping for a pumpkin spiced ale similar to Weyerbacher’s, but was slightly disappointed. Pours reddish brown with off-white head that diminishes are a few minutes. Nose is only mild pumpkin with a slight nutty note. Taste is a bit nutty wild only subtle pumpkin flavor that comes at the finish. Not a lot of spices, but a drinkable beer nonetheless.

Bottle. Clear amber with a small white head. Pumpkin, spice, and light malt aroma. Flavor is rather sweet, caramel malt, pumpkin, spice finish. Medium body. I’ve had worse pumpkin ale, and a few better.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Poured a clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of pumpkin and spice with a bit of a grain backbone. Flavor was similar with a strong pumpkin note and growing spice.

On tap at brewery, pours adark amber gold color with a nice white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma is full of spices and sweetness, the taste truly reminds me of a fresh pumpkin pie out of the oven, spices are nice but balanced at the same time, very enjoyable.
