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.

Pumpkin, spices, cloves, caramel malts. Clear, gold, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More pumpkin, molasses, lively carbonation, dark grain malts. Nice Pumpkin Lager, not too intense but still quite flavourful. Keg at brewery, Milwaukee.

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!

GTAEgeek (1894) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2016
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.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
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. Itís pretty tame, but itís 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. ★ 584 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 29, 2015

DATE TASTED: November 4, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: enjoying the prelude to Teachersí 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...
