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.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle via trade with Brigadier - Pours a hazy deep amber color with a good size off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is your typical pumpkin spices. Flavor is also spices but somewhat subdued. Iím sure this beer is a few months past its prime, but it still tastes pretty good. About middle of the road as pumpkin beers go. Thanks nathan.

twindadplus2 (623) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Reddish orange color with a decent sized, firm off white head. Aroma is a mild pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves). Flavor is a slightly more intense version of the aroma with a pureed pumpkin taste as well and a spicy bitterness. Medium bodied and slightly creamy on the palate with a tingly, spicy finish. Iím not a huge fan of pumpkin ales but this one is pretty good.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2010
12 oz bottle curtesy of MotheR in Law. Good aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon. Didnít much look much at appearance but decent head and wet body of craft beer. Some pumkin but not much some spices in the mix with some sweet caramel that made it better for the palate than the actual flavor indicated. Decent brew wife Wendy liked the lable god bless her soul and may she rest in peace.

nickd717 (3600) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 29, 2009
12oz bottle via trade, poured into a pint glass. Pours a translucent medium amber color with a thick, creamy beige head and great lacing. Aroma is nice with spices, pumpkin bread, and caramel. Flavor is pretty solid and fairly well-balanced, not overspiced. Pumpkin bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, caramel malt, and a little alcohol. Medium body with some spiciness on the palate. Overall a good example of a pumpkin beer, but not quite one of the best.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle thanks to Brigadier: Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing fine-bubbled white head. Aroma of sweet light caramel malt and cinnamon sugar with a touch of nutmeg. Body starts with pretty good fullness and sweet slightly doughy caramel malt with a healthy dose of cinnamon spice and earthy pumpkin. Finishes a little drier and toasty with some slightly cloying earthy sweetness and spice notes. A pretty true to style pumpkin ale, but could use some more complex malty and not sugary balance.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2009
bottle at bman1113vr tasting in dallas. The most dissapointed iíve ever been with a tyranena beer. Pours orangey amber with no head. Nose is on the better side, lots of pumpkin. Taste is pumpkiny, and ok.

madvike (3044) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle - Clear copper pour with a nice foamy tan head. Smell is a bit off -- sour malt and light pumpkin pie spice, a touch of hops, and a bit of skunkiness. It doesnít seem to be able to make up itís mind about whether itís a pumpkin beer or a sweet, malty beer. Taste is better, with tons of caramel and a bit of nutmeg and cloves. Thereís a little stale hop bitterness on the finish, and itís smooth and silky in the mouth. Overall, not bad, but not one that I would repeat next year given all the fall seasonals Iíd like to sample.
