From notes 9/10/12: Pours bright orange with a 1.5 finger, short-lived head that leaves patchy, web-like lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, spice, earthy, floral malty background heavy to caramel. Taste is ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin swimming in earthy dark lager roast and caramel. Heavy to ginger and cinnamon with a sweet, faintly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation, a little on the thin side but smooth and creamy.

Pours a fairly clear amber color. The head is 1 finger, white, but not long lasting. It dissipates to a white ring around the glass.
The nose is Well - pumpkin spices. Not too strong, but seems to me to be about right.
Taste - Very light with the spices, too light. They are there, but very weak. Some malty sweetness. No hops.
The body is ok. Not watery, and there's an almost champagne feel to it from the carbonation.
Not a bad beer, but just a bit light on the spices.

Ah yes, a pumpkin beer, wisconsinized, aka made into a bready lager. Really it is the spices and the lager grains and malts that make up the taste. Kind of bland, smell is bland too with lack of depth behind spices, and even the spices themselves being light. Body is nicely balanced and smooth. Ok entry into the style

I heard someone say that this beer taste like a Yeungling Amber Lager. I don't know what the man was talking about because this does not taste anything like a Yeungling Amber Lager or ketchup it tastes better than that. I can see a flow of bubbles going to the top of the pilsner glass rather quickly. This tastes more like a pale lager with some pumpkin and very little spices added to it. This is a mild & laid back type of pumpkin lager. I am ecstatic that I was able to find a 6 pack of this because pumpkin ales are one of my favorite beer styles & this is the only pumpkin lager around town. With that being said this beer is good but it's not great. It tastes like they held back on the pumpkin & spices a little too much than they should of. Cheers! B

This was definitely a very nice surprise...an example of never reading a book by its cover, or drinking a beer by its label, for that matter...

Right out of the bottle it pours a nice orange-tinged, pumpkin-akin colored liquid, light on head and no lacing to produce. The smell is pumpkins, just not necessarily appealing. Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly carbonated, but still medium-bodied, full. The taste is slightly sweet with pumpkin and has a malty background that works. Definitely a very good beer, not the best pumpkin instance I've had, but definitely one worth mentioning to other to try.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is pumpkin and cinnamon. The taste is heavy on the spice with some pumpkin. A very enjoyable beer.

Murky orange color like a glass of apple cider. Head does't last. Strong pumpkin pie spice aroma with green apple. Tastes like a Granny Smith apple drenched in pumpkin pie spice. It's ok. Not as caramel malt heavy as many pumpkin beers.

Just fine for a post turkey trot libation.
