Served at about 45F after a hard pour into the classic glass Lowenbrau stein. Listening to that Mumford and Sons song...
A - Crystal clear light amber body with two perfect fingers of tight off white head. Quite pretty...
S - Right off the bat the sweet spice aroma is huge, just like my jar of allspice. It settles down after a while to reveal a mild sweet grain and a spice aroma more focused on cinnamon. Nothing here that really makes me think of canned pumpkin however...
T - Nice grainy malt sweetness in the entry with spice presence that seems to focus on cinnamon and clove. Definite mineral flavors in the midpalate that lead to a quaffable, momentarily clean finish. After a few seconds, the cinnamon comes back to remind you that this is a fall seasonal.
D - This beer works for me, its a well made lager, as Lakefront is known to do. Manages to avoid being flabby like most pumpkin beers I've had, while still having the spice to make me think fall. The only complaint would be the apparent lack of actual pumpkin flavor, although I'm not sure if it's possible to naturally add that without taking away that characteristics that I love about this beer. Anways, best pumpkin beer I've had in a sixer so far, although still not quite as good as St. Ambroise The Great Pumpkin Ale and that nice light one.. what was it? Oh yeah, Pumking.
