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.

I love a pumpkin ale. Strong robust spiceness paves the way to spectacular holidays. Thinner than other pumpkin lagers, with little hops and just enough clovey spiciness. Could turn you hair orange with too many!

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

Like pouring punkin’ juice. Nice color w/ a medium sized froth. Good head retention w/ a nice lasting lace. Smells just like grandmas pumpin pie. Medium nectar w/ soft residual effers. Very malty and round w/ defined pumpkin pie spice. The bittering unit is bright and refreshing. The finish has a lingering malty spice. This is what pumpkin beer is all about. A great specimen. Highly recommended.

Hazy orangey-amber colour. Bright, assertive pumpkin nose with lots of spice (nutmeg). Body is light...there’s just enough malts to keep this going. Big nutmeg splash. Plus, it has lager cleanliness. Not the coolest pumpkin beer I’ve ever had, but probably the most technically sound.

Originally reviewed: 11/7/09. Poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a thin off-white head on top. Little retention, and even less lace. Smells of pumpkin bread, allspice, cinnamon, and a light Kool-Aid after-scent. The body on this one is a little thin, but this aids in drinkability as this is quite refreshing. This is a very good pumpkin beer. The pumpkin is there, but not overpowering in any way. The spices are muted as well. There’s a very pleasant honey-kissed bready aftertaste that I really dig. I think this is my favorite pumpkin-flavored beer to date.

From bottle poured into a pint glass. Sweet, but spicy. That pretty much all there is to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 You really need to taste this beer at room temperature to truly appreciate it. The flavor really comes alive. This is an excellent pumpkin beer.

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. The Derricks ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Taste is a tad bitter on the backend with a nice pumpkin flavor throughout. Has an aggressive carbonation in the mouth. Very nice.
