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.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Bright orange/red and lightly hazy body. Small fizzy head that goes away fast. Sweet spicy aroma... cinnamon / nutmeg / allspicemostly. Overall, a holiday spice concoction. Decent taste... better than I remember from back in the day. Pumpkin and spices that are sweet, but not overly so. Slightly creamy, slightly fizzy. I agree it could have more flavor, but it is still nicely done. And like all Lakefront beers though, drink it fresh.

Pours a burnt orange color with no head. Cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose. The taste has much more pumpkin flavor than most. It seems typical to have lots of spices rounded off with pumpkin; this one reverses that recipie. Pretty tasty treat, but I would like a little more flavor. Not bad by any stretch.

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2004
deep orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin with muted nutmeg and cinnamon. Sweet veggie flavor with nutmeg and cinnamon on the finish. Not too overwhelming, in fact for a pumpkin beer, I would like the flavors to be a bit more assertive and distinguish itself from a regular bock. This one just seems comfortable sitting on the fence.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Bottle pours a pumpkin color with a short lived fizzy head and no lace. The aroma is a bit off, sour, and not real inviting. The flavor is much the same, lacking in either much pumpkin flavor or spice. There is a bizzare pumpkin after taste. The pallet is of a mediocre fizzy lager. Overall, less than average.

pexoo (17) - Avon Lake, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2004
It has a nice pumpkin flavor and nice color. It lacks aroma and depth. I really enjoyed the flavor, but it fades to quickly, which leaves it wanting.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Very aromatic pumkin aroma, nice. Slightly cloudy amber color. Taste has a nice, round pumkin flavor and is medium bodied. Not too fizzy either. A very good job done on this beer, better than other pumpkin beers Ive had.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2004
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.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
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.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2003
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.
