Pumpkin beers have been an American tradition since the pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock while Oktoberfest beers have been brewed in Germany since not long after Prince Ludwig got hitched in 1810. Now Terrapin is carving out our own special brew by combining these two great styles into a unique PUMPKINFEST beer...This Side Project has all the complex maltiness of a great Oktoberfest lager with the delicate spiciness of grandmas fresh baked pumpkin pie.

Formerly Terrapin Side Project Pumpkinfest.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 This is an excellent fall pumpkin beer. More of a Pumpkin than an Oktoberfest. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pumpkin. Tastes is the same as the nose..Delicious ! If you see this one..do not pass it up...Buy it !

On tap at SLL tasting. Poured a copper color with a huge off white head that lingers leaving some lacing, hazy. Aroma of nutmeg, clove, and light malt. Taste is malty and nutty, nutmeg, clove, pumpkin pie, pecan, walnut, ginger. Thin body with moderate carbonation.

33 cl frn systembolaget. En ganska blek Stout kan bero p att det var dagens tredje och alkoholsvagaste.

Clear amber pour wit garnet tint. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Very light nose of mild pumpkin and spice. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Normal carbonation level with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice prickly burst in the finish. The flavor profile is good, but rather weak. Light pumpkin, light spice (so light I cant tell what it is), a hint of bitterness and a subtle sweetness that proves a very good balance. The finish is a slow fade of spiced pumpkin.

12 oz can served in tulip glass. Large frothy head slowly thins down to a film and heavy lacing. Aroma is alot of herbal spice. Taste is some pumpkin but mainly gourd and some spice such as clove. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter. More herbal and gourd like than most pumpkin beers. Medium carbonation and medium bodied beer. Overall good pumkin type beer. Good combonation of squash like flavor and modest spicing. Very enjoyable for the. Season.

12oz can pours a clear amber with some frothy, white head. Nose is what you want, what you expect, spice, brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, some definite root vegetable, maybe more sweet potato than pumpkin. Flavor is a bit weaker, but still nice, floral, some root veg, some brown sugar, then spice, pepper, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Dry finish. Well done.

Pumpkin beers are make or break for me. I guess this is closer to make. Aroma is mostly pumpkin with a hint of cinnamon. Pours hazy Amber with thin beige head. Flavor is cinnamon, pumpkin, and spice. Decent, but eh.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- By all means this is pumpkin pie in a glass. One of the better pumpkin beers Ive had. Gives me hope for this niche style.
