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.

Bottle from fear025. Clear golden pour with nice tan head. Aroma is lots of allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is tons of spice with a hint of pumpkin. Well executed for this style.

12 Oz bottle. Pumpkin and nutmeg aroma.. Sweet malt and pumpkin flavor. Long roasty bitterness. Overall... Meh. Not my style, but has its place.

muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Woodmans on Gammon Road in Madison, served at cellar temp in a pint glass. Moderate off-white head decays quickly atop a slightly oily amber-gold body...fairly typical pumpkin-spice aroma - ginger and cinnamon and cardamom and clove - but enhanced by more malt presence than usual, and quite fresh and fairly strong...body is sweet but not to me excessively so, lots of caramel malt, toasty Oktoberfest-like characteristics, some spicy bitterness and a juicy-fruity quality, with just a touch of dryness and smokiness at the finish...full on the palate throughout, carbonation light to moderate. Ive been sick of pumpkin ales lately but this one works pretty well; it might be too sweet for some but certainly there is more balance here between the pie-spiciness, sugar and malt body than we often see. Well done.

Bottle. There are two types of pumpkin beers: ones that are over-spiced and vegetal, and ones that are toasty and balanced and make you happy the leaves are dying, that football is back (...and hockey not far behind it), that bonfire season is here, and that your kid is already thinking about his Halloween costume over a month early. This one falls (no pun intended) into the latter category. Solid.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison, WI. Clear amber pour with healthy foam. Nose is spiced tea. Flavor begins with butterscotch, small pumpkin candied lemon peel. Oily, richer palate. Not bad. I should stop ordering pumpkin beers.

Itzjerm (2762) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Sweet with light bitterness. Clear no head. At the brewery. Lots of pumpkin all spice with good mouthfeel. Good basic pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of pumpkin, spice, caramel, malt, and cinnamon. Color is deep orange hue. Nice complex flavor of pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, pepper, oak, caramel, malt, and burnt wood. Has a clean but spicy finish. great choice!

scarletfire65 (1443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle at home. From Whole Foods. Cloudy amber when poured cold. The aroma is nutmeg,canned pumpkin, overripe banana, and banana bread. Full bodied with aggressive carbonation. Flavors include banana and wheat, aside from the token spices and pumpkin. Dry finish with lingering spices, including white pepper. Fine pumpkin ale, even in late May.
