COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is there a better fall treat than pumpkin pie? Nope, which is why there are so many pumpkin beers out there. It’s also why ours is based on the dessert, not the gourd. Our twist: Punkel has no pumpkin. It’s a dark, malty German lager but with a lighter body enhanced by cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ginger. Because who doesn’t like a little trick with their treat?

Pours dark mahogany with a medium sized beige head. Smells malty and full of fall flavored spices. Taste is malty sweetness with some spice. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Lakewood Punkel finishes with a sweet spiciness.

Nice autumn seasonal offering from local brewer. Spicy as advertised. Hearty dunkel. Another Lakewood hit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown brew that smells of spice. Taste is very spicy with a little bit of sweetness hiding in there. Very good brew and one that I hope to get more during October instead of January. Even though I am a little late it was still very satisfying on this chilly day.

On tap at The Common Table. Pours a Deep mahogany with a thin white head. The aromas are cinnamon, pumpkin, spice. The mouthfeel is watery, bready and has a light body with good carbonation. Good Beer! Cheers!

Pours a dark leathery brown in the glass. Spicy pumpkin spice aroma. Flavor of toasty malt with an aftertaste of more spicy malt notes like a dark pumpkin spice bread with a touch of molasses. Overall, an extremely delicious brew. Thanks BarZigKin!

6-pack picked up at Cheers with Zac. I was surprised by the lower ratings here because for me this was a nice pumpkin brew. I liked how it wasn’t just overpowering spice. This had some of the vegetal pumpkin notes to add some depth. Plus the base dunkel was nice too. I would happily buy this each fall/winter.

Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, a hint of clove and vanilla with a faint touch of chocolate. Flavor is very much the same with a light hop bitter finish. Medium, soft mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation
