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.
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.

Bottle from a trade. Holy pumpkin aroma, Bateman. Spicy. Phenolic. Lots of clove palemgold color. Taste is less clove lien but still spicy. Like more nutmeg. Yup. It’s a pumpkin beer. Can’t finish the glass. anders37 (26194) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2017

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is pumpkin and cinnamon. The taste is heavy on the spice with some pumpkin. A very enjoyable beer. Drake (13647) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Keg at the brewpub, 8/16/16. Clear amber, large creamy white head, good retention. Aroma of strong pumpkin spice, pumpkin, toasted malt. The taste is toasted malt, pumpkin, pumpkin spice. Medium bodied, mild lingering spice.

Not overdone on the spices, but really not all that exciting either. A sweet lager, malt forward with moderate fall spices. Thin to medium bodied but crisp. OK. jflopsu (1592) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pours a hazy bright rust orange. A strong pumpkin and cinnamon aroma. A sweet taste of sweet malt, pumpkin, and spices. A lingering pumpkin spice aftertaste. MetalNHopHead (1887) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Ah yes, fall is when the American beer market is inundated with dark Lagers and Pumpkin ales. For convenience, Lakefront has found a way to combine the two. This brew pours clear copper orange. Short-lasting off-white head, no lacing. Aromas of Lager yeast, toasted pumpkin, and baking spices. Cooked pumpkin and bread flavors. Only a bit of spice, the balance keeps them from being obnoxious. Medium-bodied. The balance definitely leans in favor of sweet. It doesn’t do much for me, but it’s okay. rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2016

Pumpkin, spices, cloves, caramel malts. Clear, gold, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More pumpkin, molasses, lively carbonation, dark grain malts. Nice Pumpkin Lager, not too intense but still quite flavourful. Keg at brewery, Milwaukee.
