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.

brokensail (11528) - Orange County, 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.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle from Guerde. Pours dark amber with very little head. Aromas of roasted caramel and pie spice. Medium plus body with strong carbonation. Flavor is kind of squash with pie spice. Finishes with lots of spice flavor. There’s a detectable pumpkin in the end - unless the spice is messing with me.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
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.

BMan1113VR (7868) - 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.

Typical high-gravity pumpkin beer, tastes more like malt and spiced than anything.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2009
On tap at Tyranena. Poured medium orange with a moderate cap of off-white head. The aroma was very sweet with graham crackers, caramel, and fruity notes laced with strong nutmeg and pumpkin meat.. so sweet it was almost candied. The flavor was quite sweet again with a candied backing.. pumpkin meat, cloves, and nutmeg all surrounded, laced with abundant alcohol.. just a touch of licorice on the very back. Very sweet as mentioned on the palate and stronger than expected.. too strong and spicy on the back, but still solid overall.

CaptainCougar (7132) - 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.
