From East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing comes their latest addition to their beer lineup “Schadenfreude Pumpkin Oktoberfest” a Pumpkin Lager. This beer replaces Parallel 49’s popular Seedspitter Watermelon Wit for the Fall/Winter months. The beer pours an orange colour with a white head. This beer has a powerful aroma of pumpkin, spices and malts. The flavor is quite similar with strong malts and pumpkin, spices and a slight hops bitterness to finish things off. The alcohol content of the beer is 5% and the IBU is 27. I do not enjoy pumpkin pie at all so I was a little worried when I looked to pick this beer up. I decided to head to their tasting room and try it out there before the purchase. The beer was amazing and I left with a 6 pack to continue to sample!
