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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - 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 (3360) - 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 (2658) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Bottle thanks to brigadier. Pours with a clear golden body and a minimal white head. Aroma of wheat, nutmeg, caramel and spice. Taste is pumpkin, vegital, watery and nutty. Light bubbles. Not on par with some other pumpkin beers.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Tap at Happy Gnome. Pours amber color with a short lived head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. The flavor is much the same. As a pairing with the cheese plate, it was sublime! Yes, have this and St. Peter Blue Cheese and go to heaven.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Tap. pour is orange with small white head. Lots of pumpkin and holiday spice in the aroma of this one. Malt also present but certainly takes a back seat. Flavor is pumpkin pie all over the place. Very strong spice, lots of sweet pumpkin and light malt background. This is definitely one for the pumpkin lovers.

OK so this was a great bier. Super tastey, spicey and fruity all the way through. A orangeish mahogany colour with a nose full of spice. Pumpkin and cloves on the palate with generous apple pie and other spices all the way through. Super happy tyranena produced such a gem for this fall!
