Having had other pumpkin lagers I was dissapointed by this one. Pumpkin taste was lacking and the carbonation was too powerful for me.

Pretty good pumpers. Made with lager so it's not as lively in the younger but the pumps is strong and good spices. Pumpers like to pump.

Can definitely smell the pumpkin along with, allspice, hay, citrus, and clove. It has a clear amber color with minimal head. heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, umami, medium body, slick feel, lively carbonation, with a long finish. Even though this beer is on the sweet side I enjoyed it very much with its balance of sweet and bitterness I would really recommend this beer.

A clear, amber colored beer with a distinct aroma. Not overpowering and good after-taste. One of the better seasonal offerings by Lakefront.

Good pumpkin lager beer. I enjoy the light body and sooth taste. Nothing wrong with that.

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.

Always a great lager, it tends to vary ever-so-slightly year by year. Good, but not overwhelming, pumpkin flavor, with a deep golden/amber color. Good aromas of pumpkin and spice, finishing somewhat dry.

This is my favorite pumpkin beer out there so far. I love the really rich taste and the enticing aroma. If you like pumpkin beers this one is great, and one of, if not the only, pumpkin lager. The rest are usually ales.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Nutmeg, a bit of cinnamon, a hint of pumpkin, brown sugar and a hint of toasty malt. No hop aroma.
Appearance: Slightly hazy copper with a thin, fine white head that lasts. Filtered bottle with no sediment.
Taste: Flavor is mostly spice with a bit of pumpkin and a little toasty malt. No hop flavor unless it’s a bit of English muddiness hiding behind the spice.
Mouthfeel: Sweetish, medium body. Low carbonation
Overall: Decent pumpkin beer, but pretty one-dimensional. Most pumpkin beers are really just pumpkin spice beers- it’s neither surprising nor necessarily bad that this one is as well.
