3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A smooth, somewhat light brew that is satisfying and a nice change. Pumpkin flavor at the end is apparent, however I wish it would have been a little more powerful.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Murky peach color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.
3.25 S: Mild pumpkin spices with nutmeg and allspice most prominent. Light caramel and toastiness. Not really anything else going on. It’s pretty tame, but it’s not bad.
3.25 T: Tastes like the nose. Mild spices with notes of caramel and toastiness. Not a lot of flavor, but enough to make it a decent enough brew.
3.0 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch watery and lacking creaminess.
3.0 D: Tame but decent.

Somewhat watery barely tasted the pumpkin. Soft thin white head quickly dissipated. Nothing special here

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
DATE TASTED: November 4, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: enjoying the prelude to Teachers’ Convention weekend... APPEARANCE: bright orange-amber body with minimal effervescence; clear throughout; thin, dissipating white head that subsides to minimal run of bubbles akin to iced tea... AROMA: cinnamon and nutmeg to start, with the hint of syrup and sweet malts at second scent; some evergreen spruce makes for an air freshener experience... PALATE: surprisingly vibrant, with an initial shiver to the throat; upon second sip, the mouthfeel mellows to a light-bodied, slightly textured presence--not the feel of pumpkin pie, label be damned,... TASTE: a lager, through and through, with slight suggestions of the odd yet intriguing aroma; mostly wet malty base with some phenolic yeasts...again, not exactly pumpkin pie... OVERALL: not the experience that other Lakefront brews offer--but not by much...an otherwise average attempt at a flavorful seasonal...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear pale amber colour with no head. Aroma of pumpkin, some spices, maybe cinnamon and subtle grain. Taste of pumpkin, spice, some cinnamon, a little orange, sugar and grain. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A spicy bitterness in the finish. It’s does what it says on the bottle. Pumpkin lager with real pumpkin & spices. Decent but not sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 12/25/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish; and very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good pumpkin lager style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
