Pumpkin Lager pours a copper color with a very small but lacing head. There is a nice mellow pumpkin aroma. The taste has a nice mellow but noticeable pumpkin flavor. Good body and good feel. Overall its not over the top, its just a very nice pumpkin beer.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Pumpkin, starchy, pilsner malts, lager yeast, and sugary.

Taste: Same as above. Nothing fantastic here. Sweet and smooth.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, sweet, a little chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Decent pumpkin beer. The lager smooths things out too.

Heavy on the spice, not so much on the beer

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a heavy glass beer mug.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden amber/straw color with an inch of bubbly white head that very quickly dissipated into a thin ring around the perimeter with no lacing to speak of.

S - Cinnamon, pie crust, pumpkin, nutmeg and a faint egg-nog creaminess. Sweet summer hay and a touch of citrus and vanilla finish the nose as the core pumpkin pie scents linger. Overall fairly standard for this style.

T - Lighter spice than the nose suggests, first coming on with cinnamon and malty crust with the pumpkin meat showing up not long after the initial sip. Finish is surprisingly dry yet sweet, with the spices and pumpkin lingering, joined by vanilla, clove and honey.

M - Lighter in body than one might expect, yet full and slightly creamy nonetheless. The 6% ABV enhances the sweeter flavors a bit with some added body and does a lot for this beer in my opinion.

O - Definitely spiced, definitely pumpkin, and definitely a lager. This beer feels slightly lighter but keeps a creamy body despite the easy drinkability and never feels overpowering. The high(er) ABV lends a bit of warmth to the finish and is reminiscent of classic Marzen-style lagers. Not an earth-shattering experience, but a very nice take on the style and lends enough uniqueness to outshine others in this genre.
