Bottle: pours light copper color. Has almost and overwhelming pumpkin and other spice smell. The first time I had this beer I was not too fond of it. But on second try it is not bad. Low carbonation and not much body to the beer. So when you put it down, it sort of ends. The pumpkin flavor is nice and not too over the top.

Pours yellow-orange and clear. Very little head. Strong pumpkin aroma, with some nutmeg, clove, and brown sugar thrown in. Taste is a bit of pumpkin, which doesn’t hold up very well against the spices, particularly the nutmeg. Not bad, but I wouldn’t say it reminds me of pumpkin pie so much. Not sweet, by the way.

Purchased bottle in Menomonee Falls, WI. This was a decent fruit/vegetable beer, except for the overpowering nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices added to pumpkin pie. This is much like Leinie’s Apple Spice in that the motto seems to be "The More Spices, The More Flavor". Well, more isn’t always better. As opposed to Blue Moon’s far superior pumpkin beer, Lakefront’s lager is too overspiced. The beer looks good, a cloudy orangish color. It smells like Thanksgiving at Grandma’s. The flavor was overpowering as previously stated, too much perfume/sweetness in what could have been a nice autumn brew. Definitely not up to Lakefront’s quality standards.

Orange with a thin head and lots of lacing. Aroma of cooked pumpkin. Tastes like a wheat ale with pumpkin, rather simple. Water palate.

Aroma smell like an artificial canned pumpkin perfume, and the taste isn’t a lot better. Nice looking pour, for whatever that’s worth. Yuck.

9/29/13 part of the 8 pack drank out front. Big pumpkin spice in both taste and smell. I think I'm officially over pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is very pumpkin pie and quite good.

3.2
twindog (274) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours a cloudy butterscotch color with white head. Pumpkin pie aroma. Pleasant test...cinnamon, clove, ginger and flaked barley. but this is more spicy than pumpkiny. Medium body.

3.9
noelcb (271) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Dirty brass color, foamy white head, fine lace. Aromas of spice, herbs, yeast and hops -- faint pumpkin smell. Flavor of pumpkin shines through along with pie spices, cloves, chocolate and citrusy hops. Not terribly sweet, though. Effervecent but not unpleasantly so. Refreshing with long, clean finish.

AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2013
12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Golden brown hue, normal clarity with off-white fully diminishing head. Virtually no lacing. Nutmeg & spice on the nose. Light citrus, pumpkin & alcohol up front, light citrus & nutmeg on the finish. Oily texture with flat carbonation on the palate. It was okay.
