Schadenfreude Pumpkin Oktoberfest – Parallel 49 Brewing


Fall Seasonal

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!
