COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin Lager is brewed with pumpkins in the mash, spices added during the boil, and lightly hopped. The rich specialty grains and lager fermentation combine to produce the taste and the texture of pumpkin pie.

Orange in color with a brown tinted head. Lightly spiced, and sweet aroma. The big and malty flavor holds the spices in check and the body makes this feel like a meal. One of my two favorites in the pumpkin beer category.

Slightly murky orange with a huge foamy tan head but it dies quickly. Sweet pumpkin syrup and candy smell, a bit artificial. Taste has some rye, cardamom, soap and some sweet peach. Too candy-like.

Lakefront's pumpkin effort is one of the better ones of its ilk. A fairly spicy little ditty this is and chock full of gourd goodness. Like with most other things Lakefront does, this is done right with enough ingredients added so that the flavor is rich and full. Also, the underlying lager is moderately-malty as well, so I think residents of Milwaukee can be proud of this locally-brewed Halloween beer.

Having had other pumpkin lagers I was dissapointed by this one. Pumpkin taste was lacking and the carbonation was too powerful for me.

I was not expecting to, but I enjoyed this beer. I am far from a spiced beer fan, but this is the second spiced beer from Lakefront that I enjoyed (the other being Lakefront Holiday Spice). It has just the right amount of pumpkin, it sorta reminds me of munching on pumpkin seeds.

Frank (2930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 This one pours a slightly cloudy light amber with a nice white ring of head. Nose is mildly spicy with a hint of sweet malts. Somewhat lacking in texture--a bit thin with maybe a tad too much carbonation. Slightly tart with a touch of bitterness. The spices are well done but I find myself craving a stronger malt profile to hold them up. Though I’m generally a sucker for these spiced winter beers, this one doesn’t quite do it for me.

Poured and orange-copper color, small white head. Smell of pumpkin, cinnamon and other spices. Tasted very pumpkin pie like. Probably would be better mixed as an ale instead of a lager. Decent beer.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2004 Light amber color with a small white head. Strong cinnamon aroma. Flavor of cinnamon, other spices and a little pumpkin. Pretty watery.

A pumpkin beer that actually smells like pumpkin, what a novelity. Not overly spiced to compensate for lack of pumpkin like in other pumpkin beers. Some mace and allspice aroma along with the noticable pumpkin aroma. A nice pumpkin taste that balances well with the spices. Nothing is over the top, a very nice beer. I enjoyed it.

Oh, pours a hazy amber body with a large fizzy tan head. The aroma is robust and SPICY, reasonable amounts of cinnamon, nutmeg, and fairly pronounce pumpkin. Also a sensible maltyness in attendance, with a slightly bitter finish…. Overall making this pretty decent Pumpkin Lager.
