Bottle: pours light copper color. Has almost and overwhelming pumpkin and other spice smell. The first time I had this beer I was not too fond of it. But on second try it is not bad. Low carbonation and not much body to the beer. So when you put it down, it sort of ends. The pumpkin flavor is nice and not too over the top.

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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.
