From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #58 (November 2011):

LOOK: Clear pale amber

SMELL: Pie spice, cinnamon, pumpkin meat, cookie dough, clean

TASTE: Moderate body, crisp, pale malt, bready, pie spice, vague tartness, pumpkin, dried hay, flour, alcohol, more spice

A very well-spiced Pumpkin Lager. Oh yeah … it's a lager. Easy to drink for what it is. When it comes to spiced beer, it's pretty subjective on whether you want more than one—but we could see having more than one. There is depth, but lightness as well, two worlds that should have met a long time ago perhaps.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a slightly orange, dark yellow straw colored. Very slight haze as well. Started with a 2 finger off white head that faded to none after a few minutes. Aroma was a sweet pumpkin with small hints of spice, mostly like a pie puree. Taste was slightly sweet, but fairly bland, akin to a bland bread. Felt a bit over tingly in the mouth, but coated well. Overall a middle of the road pumpkin beer. Nothing outstanding in any direction.

The aroma of this beer first hits you as a real spicy and sweet beer. Quite the opposite. This beer has a real light mouth feel but the hint of sweetness is just of enough to have one beer per night.

This beer is not too sweet and not too savory this beer can go well with savory foods such as turkey and be a great dessert beer or just to drink around.

From tasting notes 10-19-11
Poured into a warbled mug

Appearance: Slightly cloudy (perhaps some chill haze) orange-amber beer with a tall foamy cream head. The head settles slowly and has a thin ring of head retention and a very small amount of spotty lacing.

Smell: I can definitely smell it is a lager-it's got the characteristic clean, crisp malt in the background; however, this beer has pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon cloves that take the show. It smells like a baked pumpkin pie.

Taste: Tastes like pumpkin up front, and finishes with the spices previously mentioned (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves) and has an amazing finish. The aftertaste is crisp clean pumpkin pie.

Mouthfeel: Light body with medium carbonation and a smooth, very drinkable finish.

Overall: This beer is very well-blended and mellow. Nothing is overpowering or out of balance/proportion. A rarity among pumpkin beers!
