Fantastic fresh pumpkin aroma. Rich dark amber hue. It has a rich, creamy, slightly sweet overall taste. You get a ripe pumpkin flavor, with all the pumpkin pie spices, mixed in with a hearty nutty flavor. Clean finish Excellent oktoberfest beer!

Aroma smell like an artificial canned pumpkin perfume, and the taste isn’t a lot better. Nice looking pour, for whatever that’s worth. Yuck.

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.

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.

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.

12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Golden brown hue, normal clarity with off-white fully diminishing head. Virtually no lacing. Nutmeg & spice on the nose. Light citrus, pumpkin & alcohol up front, light citrus & nutmeg on the finish. Oily texture with flat carbonation on the palate. It was okay.

I'm surprised this is only rated a 3.14. It's a pretty darn good pumpkin ale. Aroma is not anything special. Color is a bright orange. Initial taste is crisp and refreshes the palate. Light on the spices, but enough to let you know it's fall. I could definitely drink it all night.

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.
