Nice to see Lakefront beer in my area now.Poured one and a half bottles into a 1/2 liter stein,deep burnt orange with almost no head to speak of,just a thin off white sheet.Alot of spice in the nose,mainly cinnamon and cardamom I pick up,not much different than many pumpkin beer out there.Spiced with a dryer than expected malt base wich kept the sweetness in check but the finish lacks any real depth.Alot of cinnamon flavors but the thinner feel to the beer actualy keeps it from being overbearing,in saying that it's pretty average and light.

Appearance - Golden Yellow, a little hazy. White fizzy head, doesn't trail off too quickly. I'm intrigued by this one. Looks Good.

Smell - This smells sweet, maybe a little citrus, some honey. Pumpkin is there but not obtrusive.

Taste - Light, crisp, and a little sweet. I swear I'm tasting honey here, but I might be off. The pumpkin is coming through just right. I taste clove and nutmeg. The 6.0% abv is pretty up front in this one, but it's not a bad thing

Mouthfeel - Great mouthfeel, it's a little carbonation heavy for a second but finishes nicely, which is what I expect for this style. Really enjoyable.

Overall - Really like this one. It delivers what I want in a pumpkin lager. The pumpkin and spices are there but they aren't overpowering. It all sits very well. This is clean, refreshing and very drinkable. I'd certainly pick this up again.

3.45/5  rDev -0.3%

Appearance: Standard golden orange as I recall. Decent foam and lacing.

Smell: More pumpkin spices. A bit mellower than HornyCopia. Still good though.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Mellow spices, particularly cloves. Thinner than HornyCopia, but still pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and cloying at the end and there is a vinegar-like sourness.

Overall Drinkability: Pretty good. Started out better than HornyCopia, which I was sampling along with this. Lacked a good finish.

A: half finger head, minimal retention on a hazy amber with slight golden hue body.

S: mild aroma for the style with mostly pumpkin pie and some spice.

T: spices, caramel, pumpkin pie and fresh pumpkin. Not as sweet as some of the others in the genre.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: I tried about 5 or 6 of these over the last few days and they all run together and seem to taste the same with subtle differences. This is on of the more bland ones, but still just another pumpkin beer.

Got this beer as part of another mix a six, and I did judge it by the cover so I'm hopeful.

A: This pumpkin beer pours a dark reddish/orange color with a very thin head that dissipates quickly.

S: Aroma is of cinnamon, spice and pumpkin peel with a hint of dark brown sugar on the back end.

T: Up front the flavor brings significant amounts of cinnamon and sugar, pumpkin spice is present through the middle of the flavor and ends with a tangy spice.

M: Beer hits the palate with a sweet, flavorful, pumpkin texture that is followed by all the sugar and spices that make up a pie.

O: Pretty good pumpkin beer, probably overlooked due to the lack of art work and familiarity with the brewer. But this beer is spot on for the season purpose, not the best pumpkin, but far from the worst.

I poured thsi beer into a pint glass, it has a nice deep, rich coper color body, with a small tannish head that hanged around for a little while. The aroma is mainly pumpkin pie spices with a little bit of pumpkin flavor. The taste is almost like a pumpkin pie but has a little more malt flavor towards the bakc of the tongue. The mouth feel is good and overall a decent pumpkin beer.

12oz bottle poured into a Capital Maibock pint glass.

Appearance- A hazy orange with a half finger of off white head.

Smell- Lots of cinnamon and pumpkin with some all spice.

Taste- Taste just like a cold October day. Lots of bready crust like flavor with gobs of pumpkin, some clove and smokyness.

Mouthfeel- A medium mouthfeel with a great warming sensation that almost gives you a fresh pumpkin pie mouthfeel.

Overall- Lakefront does another quality job with a spiced beer. A pumpkin lager that gives a spot on representation of a warm pumpkin pie. The slight warming is a magnificent touch.
