Pours a copper with hints of gold on the edges. The big two fingers of head dissipated quickly leaving only a touch of lace behind. The nose has notes of both pumpkin and seasonal spices present. The upfront feel is relatively full bodied with pumpkin and malt flavors leading the way. The finish has some nice dry bitterness that blends well with the spices.

This offering is a lager, unlike most pumpkin beers which are ales. Still, this is a solid effort and a tasty fall seasonal.

My first "Pumpkin lager". Pours a clear copper color with a fairly big white head. Good head retention and lacing. Smell is a bit mild, malty and pumpkin spices...not overdone but not too robust either.

Solid flavor. Good light malty beer with a mild amount of pumpkin pie spices.

Mouthfeel is crisp and light. Not a bad Pumpkin based beer. Worth a try.
