12oz bottle, from a Liquor Mart on south Colorado near my hotel in Denver last week. A pumpkin lager is a new one for me, I think.

This beer pours a slightly blurry, medium copper amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and mildly creamy dirty white head, which leaves a few specks of remote islet lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of vegetal pumpkin puree, clove, cinnamon, and ginger spice, bready pale malt, and a further singed brown sugar sweetness. The taste is more sugary pumpkin pie all the way - grainy malt, baked fleshy gourd, nutmeg, cinnamon and zesty ginger - with a certain metallic astringency - and a hint of muddled hop bitterness.

The bubbles are fairly frothy in their moderate bearing, the body a sturdy medium weight for a lager, and mostly smooth, the metallic nature near overcome by a low-key creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the lingering sweet pumpkin and bready malt shedding a large part of the spice.

A pleasant spiced seasonal pumpkin brew, you pretty much wouldn't know this was a lager unless the label said so - I've had plenty of lighter-seeming pumpkin ales. Perhaps a bit drier than the impression I have thus far given, which makes this something that I could see having a few of, come time to dole out the goods to the neighborhood kiddies.
