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.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours out a nice orange color, 1 finger of an off white soapy head, minor lacing.
S - Some fresh pumpkin up front, then a barrage of spices, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and underneath it somewhere there's this weird smoky flavor.
T - Starts out ok, there's very little pumpkin here, but it does exist, its hidden under tons of spice, has a slight tartness mid way, but mid way comes this burnt bacon fat flavor, its flat out awful, and as it warms up it gets prominent.
M - The spice doesnt crush your palate, but that diacetyl like bacon fat flavor is sooo off color for this beer.
O - Just a big disappointment, I liked the idea of this beer, but I have no clue where that weird bacon flavor is coming from, just unbearable.

Appearance: Orange with a decent head.

Aroma: Vanilla, cloves, pumpkin.

Taste: Spices hit you right from the start, medium in body, and then it mellows out more like a Oktoberfest with the breadiness, caramel and malts.

Overall: I too like the idea of combining these two fall styles (and favorites of mine in the fall). It feels and tastes more like an Oktoberfest with pumpkin flavor. Easy to drink at 6.10%, but has enough pumpkin flavor to not be a session beer. Cheers!!
