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.

Bottle. Clear orange copper with white head. Aromas of caramel, pumpkin spice, herbs. Flavors of caramel, starchy pumpkin, pumpkin spice, herbs. Medium-thin body with slick mouthfeel and moderate, soft carbonation. Balanced, highly drinkable. Great pumpkin beer.

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.

Decent body to this one is what stood out the most. Much better than the majority out there, aside from Dogfish Head’s version. Pours a nice deep amber hue and the spices of pumpkin pie dance through my nose. A bit too sweet on the palate, but drinkable. Sad to see that the foam quickly clears soon after I’ve had my first sip. Hard time finding the hops in this one where the spice dominates. I understand it is lightly hopped, but perhaps a bit more to help balance out the sweetness.

Aroma - sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg; Appearance - light copper, fluffy head, poor lacing; Taste - light malt front, balanced pumpkin flavor throughout, spice notes intensify into the back, somewhat spicy finish; Palate - slightly crisp, average body; Overall - easy drinking, not in-your-face pumpkin yet not bland either.

Aroma is more of a pumpkin and cinnamon spice. Flavor really brings this spice out, not really the nicest of pumpkin flavors.

Pours a hazy orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Taste is a tad bitter on the backend with a nice pumpkin flavor throughout. Has an aggressive carbonation in the mouth. Very nice.

evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours yellow-orange and clear. Very little head. Strong pumpkin aroma, with some nutmeg, clove, and brown sugar thrown in. Taste is a bit of pumpkin, which doesn’t hold up very well against the spices, particularly the nutmeg. Not bad, but I wouldn’t say it reminds me of pumpkin pie so much. Not sweet, by the way.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Purchased bottle in Menomonee Falls, WI. This was a decent fruit/vegetable beer, except for the overpowering nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices added to pumpkin pie. This is much like Leinie’s Apple Spice in that the motto seems to be "The More Spices, The More Flavor". Well, more isn’t always better. As opposed to Blue Moon’s far superior pumpkin beer, Lakefront’s lager is too overspiced. The beer looks good, a cloudy orangish color. It smells like Thanksgiving at Grandma’s. The flavor was overpowering as previously stated, too much perfume/sweetness in what could have been a nice autumn brew. Definitely not up to Lakefront’s quality standards.
