Very Dark Cloudy Orange. Scent and flavor are a line up of Pumpkin, Spices, Yeasts, Barley and an average malty backbone. The palate is very crisp and light, thanks to a nicely balanced carbonation. Overall a solid Pumpkin Ale. nlderricks (16) - Fayetteville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pretty good pumpers. Made with lager so it's not as lively in the younger but the pumps is strong and good spices. Pumpers like to pump.

Pours a hazy orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Taste is a tad bitter on the backend with a nice pumpkin flavor throughout. Has an aggressive carbonation in the mouth. Very nice. IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2002
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. Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2003
I was not expecting to, but I enjoyed this beer. I am far from a spiced beer fan, but this is the second spiced beer from Lakefront that I enjoyed (the other being Lakefront Holiday Spice). It has just the right amount of pumpkin, it sorta reminds me of munching on pumpkin seeds.

Orange in color with a brown tinted head. Lightly spiced, and sweet aroma. The big and malty flavor holds the spices in check and the body makes this feel like a meal. One of my two favorites in the pumpkin beer category. Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Amber pour with small white head. Nice seasonal beer. Spicy flavor of nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin. Light body. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is slightly hazy orange with nice bright white head, aroma has nice sweet notes of pumpkin, biscuit, and toffee, some nice hints of cinnamon and clove, touch of caramel as well in there. Taste is much heavier on the spice but has notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg for sure, hints of toffee and caramel, some sweet bread notes along with a touch of pumpkin, finishing slightly bitter, dry and spicy. I liked this! jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2012
From notes. Another solid offering from lakefront. You can taste the actual pumpkin a lot more in this beer, unlike some others where it is mostly pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon. Easy drinking and great for the cold October nights. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 3, 2013
THOUGHTS: A good deal lighter than most pumpkin beers in body, but not light on flavor. Way better than I was expecting. I thought they just made a lager to be different, but it was really a great tasting beer. Incredibly easy to drink.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light to medium, orangey copper with a large, off-white head that pretty much fully diminished. The aroma had light grain; moderate caramel; slight hops; and mostly sweet pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter and sour; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet and slightly bitter and acidic with a sort of short duration. There was caramel malt, sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and light and crisp hops. The light to medium body was slick and creamy with fizzy carbonation. It went down so easy.
