A-Pours a beautiful amber/orange color with a tall, creamy white colored head with decent retention. Foam leaves a fair mount of lacing on the sides of the glass

S-All spices, no pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, some faint tart orange peel.

T-Follows the nose. There is a flash of pumpkin at the front of the palate, but the rest is overpowered by the aforementioned spices leaving a slightly bitter aftertaste

MF-Crispy, dry, too carbonated.

O-Terrapin makes great beer, but this one was disappointing. It is a spice bomb. I was expecting more pumpkin.

A: Pours a medium copper in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some faint reddish amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized medium thick patches of larger bubbles, a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of pumpkin pie spices with lighter notes of pumpkin. There are also some light amounts of brown sugar sweetness from the malts as well.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of toasted bready malts along with some brown sugar sweetness. There are light to moderate amounts of spices including nutmeg and cinnamon with a light amount of pumpkin. The finish is lightly earthy and lightly bitter which lingers for a short amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: I think of this more as a hybrid of Oktoberfest and Pumpkin beer rather than just a pumpkin beer - kind of interesting that it is a lager rather than an ale. I generally like pumpkin beers but I was not the hugest fan of this one - it reminds me of a spiced Oktoberfest with a hint of pumpkin.
