Pleasant pumpkin and spice aroma, light amber in color, pleasant pumpkin and spice taste that isn’t overpowering. Smooth finish. This is one of my favorite pumpkin beers. I look forward to visiting the brewery and drinking it fresh from the source one day!

My favorite pumpkin style beer. The perfect combination of spices and pumpkin. Not too much pumpkin too make it bitter but the spices also aren't too heavy. It's a great balance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I admit bias to this beer. I anxiously await its arrival every Aug/Sept, so I confess impartiality. The beer hits on all cylinders for me. A nice yeast aroma combines with a hint a of pumpkin scent (from a combo of spices including cloves) to reinforce the nature of this beer. The color is a deep brown-orange, which is what a beer crafted with pumpkin flavor should be. It sits nicely on the palate and sacrifices none of its beer-tasting quality to overwhelming pumpkin flavor. Lakefront has admittedly tinkered with this recipe over the years, but I believe the 2007 batch is just right. Strong recommendation, especially for the coming holiday dinners.

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.

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.

From the bottle in September. Pours a cloudy apricot-amber with significant head and lace. Aroma of allspice, pumpkin, brown sugar, clove. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, amber malts. Overall a lovely balance and flavor...worth seeking out.

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.

Pumpkin pie’s my favorite, but my beer store doesn’t carry this beer. Damn.
