3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a nice orangish amber with light head and lacing. Nutmeg spices and sweet malts predominated the nose. Taste was very smooth with a nice mix of malt, spices, pumpkin with a light to moderate hop finish. Mouth was good. Overall, likely the best pumpkin brew I have tasted.

Bottle shared @ ChrisO after GBBF Day 2. Clear orange golden color, small off-white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, loads of pumpkin and cinnamon, (Dutch) "peperkoek" lichtjes, maar vooral die fucking cinnamon irriteert mateloos. Gadverdamme zeg! Bleh!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, thanks to Jason. Pours orangish brown, with a small, beige ring. Strong biscuit dough and pumpkin spice, with some good actual pumpkin aromas. Sweet and malty, light savory spice, but no bitterness to speak of. Light to medium body, creamy, smooth, and easy. This is a simple and straightforward pumpkin beer, but solid, well made, and delicious.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Murky peach color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.
3.25 S: Mild pumpkin spices with nutmeg and allspice most prominent. Light caramel and toastiness. Not really anything else going on. It’s pretty tame, but it’s not bad.
3.25 T: Tastes like the nose. Mild spices with notes of caramel and toastiness. Not a lot of flavor, but enough to make it a decent enough brew.
3.0 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch watery and lacking creaminess.
3.0 D: Tame but decent.

Somewhat watery barely tasted the pumpkin. Soft thin white head quickly dissipated. Nothing special here

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
DATE TASTED: November 4, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: enjoying the prelude to Teachers’ Convention weekend... APPEARANCE: bright orange-amber body with minimal effervescence; clear throughout; thin, dissipating white head that subsides to minimal run of bubbles akin to iced tea... AROMA: cinnamon and nutmeg to start, with the hint of syrup and sweet malts at second scent; some evergreen spruce makes for an air freshener experience... PALATE: surprisingly vibrant, with an initial shiver to the throat; upon second sip, the mouthfeel mellows to a light-bodied, slightly textured presence--not the feel of pumpkin pie, label be damned,... TASTE: a lager, through and through, with slight suggestions of the odd yet intriguing aroma; mostly wet malty base with some phenolic yeasts...again, not exactly pumpkin pie... OVERALL: not the experience that other Lakefront brews offer--but not by much...an otherwise average attempt at a flavorful seasonal...
