Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottled 8/6/13. Poured 12/22/13. Pours translucent gold-amber with a thin, dissipating white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, earthy, spicy, fruity, crisp, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is dry, bitter pumpkin flesh, nutmeg, grass, roast malt; but watery. Finish is bitter pumpkin rind. No lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Mouth feel is chewy. Better than I expected but not exceedingly so. Not terrible, but certainly nothing special.

sawbuck (669) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Nice bold aroma of sweet spices, raisins, cinnamon and brown sugar. Clear orange hued amber with a white head, dissipates quickly. Heavy sweet taste up front. Heavier sugar tones, but some sweet malty tones in the background. Finishes with a cough syrup type bite, mixture of molasses and bitter hops. Medium finish, average carbonation. Average.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle pours a hazy amber orange body with a small offwhite head. Standard pumpkin beer aroma of pie spices. Taste features some genuine pumpkin favors which blend nicely with the spicy hops and pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, and clove. This lager stands up well to most pumpkin ales in my book.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Strong pumpkin-pie aroma (minus the whip-cream). Flavor was a mild malt pumpkin with bitter-sweet finish. Great for october!

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Decent holiday beer with the right amount of spices and a not too watery not too thick mouth feel.

Quake1028 (636) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2007
12oz bottle. Orange body, huge rocky off white head. Smells of metallic pumpkin spice, coriander, cinammon and sweet malts. Flavor falls apart, not enough pumpkin notes to please me. Finish is bland and brief. Medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Very average.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 5/20
maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Improbable shiny copper color with a creamy ivory head. Insanely pungent smells of redhots and pomanders (those clove-studded oranges you see hanging in your elderly aunts closet). Tastes like liquified potpourri with undercurrents of diacetyl. Caramel malts are evident. Thick, slick mouthfeel and a mouthwashy burn on the tongue. Post-vomit bilious aftertaste. Over the top spicing in this beer is orders of magnitude too much, and makes every aspect seem terribly tacky and artificial. I may have rated it too high.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Trade from Jamil 09/20/13. Full pumpkin spice nutmeg scent with clove over a gorgeous pour, fluffy white head on a bronze body. Medium sticky feel. Good pumpkin pie flavor, but the taste falls a little flat. Overall, a decent pumpkin. A good pumpkin for everyday drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear Amber Color, Medium Bubbly Head That Dissipates Rather Quickly, No Lacing. Pumpkin Aroma. Taste is Mostly Of Pumpkin, No Distinguishable Spices. Medium Body. Mellow. Decent...

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 Orange-amber color, coarse, dissipating head. Aroma of cinammon. Decent body, flavors of cinammon. Not as heavy on the cinammon as "Buffalo Bill's", but it's still way too much and doesn't allow the subtle pumpkin flavor to come through. Not a compliment to Lakefront's time-tested and smooth lager.

Update: After reading the other ratings here, I can't believe I'm drinking the same beer. Hardly a mention of cinammon. Maybe their recipe is less than precise or this year's cinammon is unusually potent.
