2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 The aroma has caramel malt, hops, spice, and a tiny bit of pumpkin and dirt. The appearance is light amber gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s OK maybe even better than OK but not something I would like to drink more than seasonally.

decent, it has some very good points with some definitive flavors of pumpkins, but its a tad on the tart side at the end of the finish, malts are good with a bit of caramel, definitely a seasonal

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Poured a pumkin orange with a small white head that quickly disappeared into a very thin fizzy cap. Left a very thin lacing on pint glass. Flavor of pumkin, hops, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg. A medium body, with medium to thick texture, lively carbonation with a slightly bitter ginger ale finish that was long. This is nice beer. Perfect for a cold blustery fall day. While I wont add it to my favorite rotation, I would definitely drink again. Nice job by LakeFront. If you like Pumkin brews definitely give this one a try.

On tap at Clark St. Ale House, Chicago. Definitely tasted the pumpkin flavor, although the overall body is very light. I wish it had a little more malt to beef up the beer-- I guess it’s just a light lager with pumpkin flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m pretty partial to pumpkin flavor, thus the above average rating. Light bodied, soft malts. Has that pumpkin pie flavor to it, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Balanced without being cloying. Not much to say here, just a nice light pumpkin beer.

(bottle) Pours a light orange with a small white head. Aroma is pretty good with some nice nutmeg slight cinnamon and a bit of pumpkin too. Taste was not the greatest slight hint of pumpkin and spice, but definitely not as strong as the aroma led me to believe, with an off-putting grainy finish that lingered.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Bottle] Pours slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Aroma is nice--spices and pumpkin with a little bit of grain. The spices (mainly clove and cinnamon) are also evident in the taste, but the pumpkin is not as much. The grains are more noticeable in the taste and especially in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best pumpkin beer I’ve had, really went downhill after the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a hazy amber orange body with a small offwhite head. Standard pumpkin beer aroma of pie spices. Taste features some genuine pumpkin favors which blend nicely with the spicy hops and pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, and clove. This lager stands up well to most pumpkin ales in my book.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this beer on 9/10/1999. Color is like they said it would be an orange/amber with good carbonation a ok head. Aroma is very spicy and hides the pumpkin scent if it ’s there at all. Taste light, spicy and mildly bitter. It starts with a light body that goes down crisp. Finish is a malt/pumpkin flavor overwhelmed by coriander and nutmeg. Ok to drink by there is just a bit too much spice.
