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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip. Amber burnt orange color with nice white head. Aromas of bready malts, spices (mainly clove) and a crisp maltyness. Taste of biscuit and spice...again mainly clove and nutmeg - almost like a hot cider. Its actually a pleasant flavor. Nicely balanced and the spices work well with the lager crispness. Overall, a good pumpkin. I imagine it would work well with a nice thanksgiving dinner. Its light and flavorful...
too bad I cant get it in CT.

Pours a clear dark copper color with sparse bubbles rising to a cream colored head.

Aroma is malty like an Oktoberfest but not any real pumpkin in the nose. Lots of pumpkin spice present though mainly cinnamon and nutmeg. Something seems a little off but I am thinking its just the lager notes in my pumpkin beer.

Taste is light malts then blam spice that continues through out the the flavor . So there is some pumpkin notes in the taste spice just over powering it in the nose, almost in the taste also. Finish is like an Oktoberfest with lingering pumpkin spice not a good idea.

Mouthfeel is light side of medium with pretty smooth carbonation that seems to peak with the spice.

Overall worth a try but not something that I would see continuing to produce they would be better off making a real pumpkin ale. Think of Terrapin as the DFH of the south they make some good brews but other times its like wtf were you thinking.

Terrapin Pumpkinfest from Terrapin Beer Company is copper colored in my pint glass. Not a lot of foam here. I can smell faint pumpkin with some spices thrown in. As far as flavor goes, it's decent. Everything is accounted for. There just ain't much special going on here. I would probably pass on this in the future at the current price. As a note of interest, my beer was a 4-pack and cost $9.99. To me, this is a little pricey for an average beer. Terrapin, put these in 6ers and I could see myself buying some more in the future.

The color is dark copper almost bronze with good clarity and thick beige cream with fine bead. The smell is great, lots of spice aromatics bringing to mind pumpkin pie with a cinnomon and light nutmeg aroma. The feel is very good with nice crisp lager like presence and not overdone spice with malty texture and low bitterness. The alcohol is restrained and a nice level of sweetness is there with slightly creamy body.

The taste is slightly caramel tinged with some woodiness of cinnamon and nutmeg with a mild grain toastiness and light herbal hop flavor with a gentle fruity tinge of pumpkin flesh adding an almost melon or vegetal taste with a mild spice in the finish giving a unified flavor profile. Overall this is a very drinkable pumpkin beer whether it is a lager or not …I actuall like the way the lager qualities work with the spiciness and adds to the drinkability with a more dry character in general.
