4/5  rDev +3.4%

Pours a brilliant amber orange with a nice fluffy two finger head that dissipates quicky.

Caramel malts, some tart citrus (?), and definite hint of pumpkin.

Wow, this tastes more like an Imperial Pumpkin Ale than it does a lager. Heavy, heavy, heavy on the pumpkin, that's really all I'm getting. Anyone else?

Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly bitter, but finishes smooth.

Overall, I was a little let down that this was hardly a lager, but more so a pumpkin ale. Still delicious regardless though.

Big rich liquid bread malt nose seasoned with spicy, herbal, floral hops.
Hazy peach body under a 3" snow white foam cap that is reasonably persistent and lacy for such a big alcohol beer.
Palate: creamy, rich, thick and malty liquid bread kept under control by a moderate hop bitter presence on the finish. Big malt masks the alcohol.
Full body, medium to medium low carbonation, warming.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy burnt orange with a one-finger head
S: Molasses, caramel, sweet malt, and something reminiscent of dried leaves
T: Malty and sweet, matches the nose adding a cherry note
M: Full-bodied, sweet, a hint of booze
O: Definitely tasty and a good fall beer though if the sweetness and alcohol were dialed down a bit it would be more balanced

Seemed like a sublime brew last year but this year I like larryarms847 review.

The Kaiser is the Imperial Pumpkin. Even though it has no pumpkin in it does satisfy my want to drink at least one pumpkin beer this year.

Vegetable rind could even be a tasting note.
