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.

Very Dark Cloudy Orange. Scent and flavor are a line up of Pumpkin, Spices, Yeasts, Barley and an average malty backbone. The palate is very crisp and light, thanks to a nicely balanced carbonation. Overall a solid Pumpkin Ale.

Pours very clear orange with a whispy head that goes away quickly. It is very bubbly. The smell (and taste) is of pumpkin pie and cinamon. Overall I think it is a solid tasting beer, for me the turnoff (a little one at that) is that it is very thin on the palate. I just wish it had a little more mouthfeel. Overall it is a solid beer from one of my favorite breweries.

Bottle. Pours a rather clear orange with a medium sized white head that falls off rather quickly. Smells of sweet canned pumpkin, spices, and caramel. Medium bodied, sweet, but with a weird off flavor. Toast, malt, a good amount of graininess comes through quickly before being overtaken by more spices and pumpkin sweetness.

rangerred (949) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 24, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a medium orange with a slight chill haze. White half finger head settles to a thin cap over the beer. No lacing at all. Aroma is extremely spicy. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice are extremely prominent. A little bit of gingerbread and citrus in the way of apples comes through as well. On the taste, spice are once again up front really overwhelming all other flavors initially. Tons of cinnamon and allspice really lending a candy apple character to the beer. As the beer warms some more pumpkin character begins to come in with some graham cracker along with a bit of a "squashy" character. It is subtle however. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp like a lager should be and isn’t too sweet or sticky. Overall, a unique take on a pumpkin beer but the spices are a bit too much. I think if the spice was toned down it would allow more subtle characters to come through. Really nice job by Lakefront.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 Bottle at craft ale house. Pours hazy copper with virtually no head. The aroma has a very big spice nose.. Cinnamon, nutmeg.. Nice. The taste is spicy to the max and very enjoyable. Loved it.

TheBeerGod (5319) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Orange pour with a short, fizzy tan head. Strong clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in the aroma along with subtle pumpkin pie notes. Taste is mellowed spices with pumpkin pie, light brown sugar, faint caramel and grass/straw notes. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more pumpkin pie notes, spices, light caramel and brown sugar.

UncleKorm (872) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12oz bottle poured a hazy orange hue w/ a small quickly dissipating off-white head. Solid aromas of pumpkin, malt, cinnamon, clove, and ginger. Taste is a light sweet initially to a light acidic on the finish. Flavors of fresh pumpkin almost uncooked, ginger, cinnamon and toffee. Medium body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. A solid pumpkin lager.

From notes. Another solid offering from lakefront. You can taste the actual pumpkin a lot more in this beer, unlike some others where it is mostly pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon. Easy drinking and great for the cold October nights.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 You really need to taste this beer at room temperature to truly appreciate it. The flavor really comes alive. This is an excellent pumpkin beer.
