Eh. Nice aroma of pumpkins and spice. Couldnít really taste it though, just seemed to be a little spicy around the edges of my tongue. Not much to it, really.

This pours out of the bottle a pale golden color with a thin white head and an obvious pumpkin pie spice nose. I rememeber liking this beer more last year. I thought it was a little thin and the flavors were strangely disjointed. It got a little better as it warmed. Still, a nice use of spice to make an intersting beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Light amber with a light cream colored, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg with a faint pale malt undertone. Malt hits you first followed by light spice and then back to malt maltiness. Its been some time since I had had this one, and this one is better than I remember. Pumpkin really doenít come out until it warms up. Finishes slightly spicy and a touch of hops bitterness. A very good pumpkin beer.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2002
On tap: Appropriately orange colored, both a smell and taste of both pumpkin (youíre shocked, I know) and wheat. Surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a novelty, but not something Iíd drink regularly.

A unique style, and very fitting to the season. This has very distinctive taste of cinnamon and maybe nutmeg that seems to compliment the pumpkin very well. Iím not a big pumpkin fan, but I could definitely drink this with ease.

Didnít think that Iíd like this beer. Strong spicy nose and taste. Pleasant aftertaste.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2002
Obvious aromas of nutmeg and allspice. Subdued hop flavors with doughy chewiness in the long finish. Crystal malts definitely lend a hand as well in the finish. There isnít much you can do with this style.

Much better than I expected. A difficult beer to make well and Lakefront did a decent job.

This beer is very pumpkin pie and quite good.

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2001
Nice combination of clove and nutmeg spices along with a subtle backdrop of pumpkin flavor. Definite winner.
