A fittingly pumkin orange hue, foamy white head, no bubbly showing. Tasty pumkin and spice - really good aroma representing the label well. Thick type palate acceptable for a seasonal specialty flavor. Pumkin seed flavor comes to the front then a th ick buttery taste. Malt makes a limited appearance but takes a backseat to pumkin. Hops never showed up. In summation Lakefront gives exactly what the label advertises - pumkin and spice perfect for a holiday brew and one of the finest of a growing popular seasonal style.

Pretty solid beer, I would say that it has more of the spiciness that is associated with Pumpkin pie, than the actual pumpkin flavor, kind of a spicy sweet flavor, no real hops to speak of, good but not really a style that I would repeat much

strong scent of nutmeg, and some cinnamon. Also a scent of chai that lingers. taste is of pumpkin and the chai taste comes through again with some nutmeg and a little citrus. finish is smooth with a spice after taste. I would probably purchase this again.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a clear copper color, with some spices on the nose. Tastes of ginger and nutmeg, but not so much pumpkin. Decent.

Nice golden orange color. A good size head that dissipates quickly enough to question whether it was even there or not. Minor retention, but decent lacing. Spices hit the olfactory sense with a hammer. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove dominate. Smells like a fresh pumpkin pie. Sadly, the taste does not compare to the smell. All of the elements are there, they are just subdued to the point of blurring. If anything, Id say that this beer is over-balanced. I can tell that there are multiple things going on in here. I just cant pick them out and seperate them from one another. Theres too much overlap. This is the taste of "bleah!". Once again, this beer is disappointing to me. The body is weak and lifeless. Nothing to excite me. Just thin and watery. Here is a time that a beer started off very promising and couldnt quite pull it off, in the end. I wanted this to be so much more. Im not in a hurry to have another one.

On tap at Clark St. Ale House, Chicago. Definitely tasted the pumpkin flavor, although the overall body is very light. I wish it had a little more malt to beef up the beer-- I guess its just a light lager with pumpkin flavor.

Pours a hazy orange with a tiny white head yet has that constant carbonation like a glass of Sprite. Kind of an odd smell to it. pumpkin type spices, maybe cinnamon or apple pie even a bad potpourri smell. something very sweet and spicy about the aroma. Flavor is not that great, lots of nutmeg/ginger flavors. I may be biased cause Im not a fan of ginger. Pumpkin, herbal flavors. Slight sweetness .Light body, thin mouthfeel, long finish taste stick with you but I dont like it very much. Go try Dogfish Punkin Ale if you want a good pumpkin flavored beer.

The aroma is of vegetable and cinnamon. The appearance is a cloudy amber with a thin head. The taste is of vegetable as well maybe a slight spice. Easy to drink, but overall not one of the best.

This beer is ok. Some pumpkin in the aroma. Copper color. Flavor of sweet citrus and some spice. Little pumpkin. A bit astringent as it finishes. Good not great.
