750ml bottle my neighbor shared with me. Poured into a curved pint glass.
A- It appears as if the bottle may not have been sealed (cork seal on top). Almost no head, and no carbonation. Straight up clear amber.
S- I get a really nice light pumpkin and graham cracker smell. Subdued spice, which I prefer on these pumpkin LAGERS. Ale, it's a different story.
T- Follows the nose. The only other pumpkin lager I've had (Terrapin Pumpkinfest) seemed to just barely overdo the spicing, causing the lager yeast/spice interplay to leave an offputting sourness on the palette. This plays down the spice, and upgrades the pumpkin content.
M- Slightly slick from the pumpkin. No carbonation, again, appears the bottle may have not sealed properly.
O- I'd certainly like to try this with proper carbonation.

Wow, great beer. It's got a little bit of a pumpkin pie taste to it, but it's also very much a Maerzen - in fact, I'm pretty sure it's just their Fest with a little bit of spice thrown in. Great way to add a beer to the line-up without tying up tank space. But, the most important thing here is that they got the spicing down. It's very easy to go over the top, and occasionally you find a brewer that's underplayed it, but this one's spot one with just enough flavor that it doesn't become cloying, or really even build on the palate. Nice.

First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA
Poured a clear orange-amber, with a thin white head that retained as a thin ringlet throughout the session. Not much captured in the aroma, just sweet malts, light spice, and some cereal grains. Taste was pretty light and sweet. The wife didn't care for it at all, but I thought it was okay. Light and balanced, with notes of toffee, vanilla, pumpkin, and touches of cinnamon and nutmeg. Nothing too distinctive, but not too bad either (which pretty much sums up my general opinion of all Stoudts' beers). Light mouthfeel, fairly drinkable overall, but really lacking in flavor and body overall, and not something that I'd want to have more than once. It's good for those people who don't want anything too extreme. Pretty much delivered what it promised: it was like a marzen with a little bit of pumpkin beer profile blended in.
