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.

Dirty brass color, foamy white head, fine lace. Aromas of spice, herbs, yeast and hops -- faint pumpkin smell. Flavor of pumpkin shines through along with pie spices, cloves, chocolate and citrusy hops. Not terribly sweet, though. Effervecent but not unpleasantly so. Refreshing with long, clean finish.

A fittingly pumkin orange hue, foamy white head, no bubbly showing. Tasty pumkin and spice - really good aroma representing the label well. Thick type palate acceptable for a seasonal specialty flavor. Pumkin seed flavor comes to the front then a th ick buttery taste. Malt makes a limited appearance but takes a backseat to pumkin. Hops never showed up. In summation Lakefront gives exactly what the label advertises - pumkin and spice perfect for a holiday brew and one of the finest of a growing popular seasonal style.

Pours a cloudy butterscotch color with white head. Pumpkin pie aroma. Pleasant test...cinnamon, clove, ginger and flaked barley. but this is more spicy than pumpkiny. Medium body.

Bright spice and artificial pumpkin flavoring. Sweet sweet aroma. golden amber color with thin white head. Nice pumpkin and light cardamon feel.Enjoyable but not mind blowing.

9/29/13 part of the 8 pack drank out front. Big pumpkin spice in both taste and smell. I think I'm officially over pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty solid beer, I would say that it has more of the spiciness that is associated with Pumpkin pie, than the actual pumpkin flavor, kind of a spicy sweet flavor, no real hops to speak of, good but not really a style that I would repeat much

strong scent of nutmeg, and some cinnamon. Also a scent of chai that lingers. taste is of pumpkin and the chai taste comes through again with some nutmeg and a little citrus. finish is smooth with a spice after taste. I would probably purchase this again.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a clear copper color, with some spices on the nose. Tastes of ginger and nutmeg, but not so much pumpkin. Decent.

Nice golden orange color. A good size head that dissipates quickly enough to question whether it was even there or not. Minor retention, but decent lacing. Spices hit the olfactory sense with a hammer. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove dominate. Smells like a fresh pumpkin pie. Sadly, the taste does not compare to the smell. All of the elements are there, they are just subdued to the point of blurring. If anything, I’d say that this beer is over-balanced. I can tell that there are multiple things going on in here. I just can’t pick them out and seperate them from one another. There’s too much overlap. This is the taste of "bleah!". Once again, this beer is disappointing to me. The body is weak and lifeless. Nothing to excite me. Just thin and watery. Here is a time that a beer started off very promising and couldn’t quite pull it off, in the end. I wanted this to be so much more. I’m not in a hurry to have another one.

This pumpkin is more spice than pumpkin, but it is pretty damn tasty. It's a good seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
