3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy orange with two fingers of quickly settling whote head. Aroma is pumpkin with plenty of spice, smells sweet. Flavor is sweet up front, moderate to heavy spice, cinammon and allspice. Finishes with mild, perhaps slightly artificial pumpkin tones. Moderate-soft carbonation and light body. A light, drinkable, sweet pumpkin beer. Was afraid this bottle would taste old but it was fine.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was dryish and spicy with strong nutmeg and cinnamon and moderate caramel and nut undertones. Long cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
