Notes/Commercial Description:
Although this is a pumpkin beer, it is a lager and therefore doesn't belong in the pumpkin ale category. Originally a Side Project, now a Fall seasonal in six-packs.

As pumpkin beers go, I would not choose this one again. Nice places, but little else.

Had this on 2014-12-15 in Columbia, PA from a bottle.

A - Moderately clear orange-brown with a 3/4-finger off-white head and mild lace.

S - Pumpkin pie spices with a good bit of graham cracker crust influence. Nice but nothing extraordinary.

T - Different. The bready-lager aspects are enjoyable with the pumpkin pie spices (with plenty of cinnamon) complimenting this nicely. The pie spicing is certainly evident but not over-the-top for this type of beer. Finish is dry, crisp with plenty of residual spice and a touch of sourdough.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Pretty crisp. Not thick but not watery.

O - I like this brew. It stands out because of the lager base.

The nose is light but presents a nice aroma of pumpkin spices, pumpkin pie and caramel malt.

The description reveals this is a pumpkin lager and it tastes and feels like a lager. Very thin and a tone of wateriness, this is not one of Terrapin's best offerings. There is a spicy thread of clove, nutmeg, ginger and anise but I don't get much of the pumpkin gourd or pumpkin pie.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Amber/orange, with a thin tan head.

Smell: Pleasant, with a spicy aroma. I can smell the pumpkin influences.

Taste: Very nice and a unique taste. I can definitely taste the pumpkin influences, which makes for a unique taste. This is sweeter than other pumpkin brews I have tried.

This is an interesting and different seasonal beer by Terrapin. A little thinner and sweeter than other pumpkin beers.
