Had this in a tulip glass. Bottled on date Sept. 15, 2013.

The beer pours with little foam action, and only a white ring covers the top of the pumpkin ale. The opaque body is a glowing ruddy-orange with maple syrup highlights.

I could smell the spicing as soon as I cracked this one, and it was enticing! Very sweet nose with graham cracker, white bread, candied ginger, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Some very subtle clove also shows up with some agitation.

The palate of flavors begin with the graham cracker quality meshing with some earthiness and a subtle metallic flavor. The malt is more wheaty on the palate as well, not nearly as sweet. It is here that the allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon really come out in the finish, with a touch of vanilla. At first brush, this is disappointing because of the decadent nature of the nose, but it grows on the drinker.

Watery and slick over the tongue, with a decent and medium heft. A little dry with average flavor retention on the cheeks.

Painted Ladies is a worthy pumpkin ale that is well spiced and graced with a dessert-y pumpkin pie nose. Usually, highly spiced pumpkin's have an issue of being far too thin to support the flavors, but Tyranena's offering has no such problem thankfully. I would certainly have this pumpkin again!

Aroma: Sweet maltiness. Definite nutmeg up front with hint of ginger and allspice. An earthy note present as it warms, but not extreme.

Appearance: Crystal clear copper color. Large off-white head that is very persistent.

Flavor: Sweet and malty but not cloying. As with aroma, the nutmeg is front and center, with an allspice/clove "burn" coming up last. This has a slightly astringent earthy or musty finish, but doesn't detract from overall enjoyment too much. I think that flavor is the actual pumpkin in the beer. The spicing on this one is borderline too high.

Overall: Not a bad beer. Probably the best beer I've had from Tyranena in a while. I honestly had kind of written them off over the past few years after I'd tried a couple of duds. This one is high on the spices, so if you hate them then you likely won't like this beer!
