Pour out of 12 oz bottle is slightly hazy orange with nice bright white head, aroma has nice sweet notes of pumpkin, biscuit, and toffee, some nice hints of cinnamon and clove, touch of caramel as well in there. Taste is much heavier on the spice but has notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg for sure, hints of toffee and caramel, some sweet bread notes along with a touch of pumpkin, finishing slightly bitter, dry and spicy. I liked this!

From notes. Another solid offering from lakefront. You can taste the actual pumpkin a lot more in this beer, unlike some others where it is mostly pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon. Easy drinking and great for the cold October nights.

Heathen (1463) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 3, 2013
THOUGHTS: A good deal lighter than most pumpkin beers in body, but not light on flavor. Way better than I was expecting. I thought they just made a lager to be different, but it was really a great tasting beer. Incredibly easy to drink. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light to medium, orangey copper with a large, off-white head that pretty much fully diminished. The aroma had light grain; moderate caramel; slight hops; and mostly sweet pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter and sour; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and slightly bitter and acidic with a sort of short duration. There was caramel malt, sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and light and crisp hops. The light to medium body was slick and creamy with fizzy carbonation. It went down so easy.

Aromas of lager with faint pumpkin fruit notes under clove and cinnamon. A delicious lager that does not overdo the spice footer the season. Bottle from bottle shop.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 Bottle at craft ale house. Pours hazy copper with virtually no head. The aroma has a very big spice nose.. Cinnamon, nutmeg.. Nice. The taste is spicy to the max and very enjoyable. Loved it.

Bottle
Aroma: Spices, all spice, hint of pumpkin
Appearance: Slightly cloudy orange/gold with short lasting white head
Taste: Subdued flavors relative to the aroma. Spice, slight pilsner bitterness.
Palate: Light body, although a bit heavier mouthfeel. Good carbonation making for a lively mouthfeel. Finish is dry, a nicely balanced between sweet and bitter.
Overall: Interesting take on a pumpkin beer, drinkable, decent flavors, and a great aroma.

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
