Light amber to red in color with barely noticeable prickle and a faint wispy head. Very mild nose of pumpkin, spice and "chalk water." By "chalk water" I mean it smells similar to the water in a bucket after washing the blackboard in grade school. Mild attack. Flavor of pumpkin and malty grains. Clean finish but mildly sweet grain aftertaste. This is a very complex beer compared to many pumpkin ales and lagers. I would say pretty good and call it a B.

Lakefront's Pumpkin Lager looks pretty good, a slightly cloudy, suitably orange color, capped by a fine white head. Smells yeasty, with hints of the promised pumpkins and spices, but not much. The taste is yeasty as well, kind of musty, a little bit of pumpkin in the finist. The mouthfeel is a little harsh. Certainly not a very pumpkin-y pumpkin beer.

A: Poured into a Smithwick's pint. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a two-finger head that settles to a frothy lace with moderate stick.

S: Aroma is comprised primarily of classic pumpkin pie spices.

T: Sweet malt complemented by subtle dashes of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. A touch of vegetable squash. Balanced by a welcomed bite of Hallertau hops.

M: Rich and creamy mouthfeel.

D: Very sessionable. Its subdued spiced nature and crisp, refreshing character make Lakefront Pumpkin Lager a worthy harvest beer.

2.5 orange amber with big bubbles and some very large flakes floating around. the head doesn't last or leave much trace.
4 smells of pumpkin and cinnamon, some nutmeg too.
3-3.5 not as flavorful as the aroma promised, but not too bad. mild sweetness is accompanied by raw pumpkin and then overmatched by a tart finish.
2.5 mouthfeel is too thin and watery, even for a lager with a moderate abv, and the carbonation is too course to help matters.
3-3.5 overall probably not worth having around when there are such good pumpkin beers available. i do think i'd rather drink this than post road (brooklyn) though.
