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.

I have not seen a Lager pumpkin flavored beer before. It was pretty close to what you would think it should taste like. (Brewed with pumpkin spices)

Appearance: Beautiful clear golden color with and hint of orange to get you in the mood for "pumpkin".Head remains after a couple minutes but very low 1 mm. Extreme light to no lacing on the glass

Aroma: Cinnamon. Maybe a hint of nutmeg behind that but cinnamon is predominant.

Taste: I'm not a hug Lager guy so I'll do my best to be fair. The spices added a little extra hit of flavor after the initial not pumpkiness of this beer. Its a light and taste like college.

Mouthfeel: light, like a lager should but with a little bight from the spice to match the flavor aspect after the initial smoothness. I rather like the mouth feel and is appropriate for a flavored lager.

Overall: I feel this beer's best quality is it is visual very attractive. Great color, clarity and good head for the style. Next is mouth feel smooth with a spicy bite at the end. Not surprised of the lack of pumpkin in this beer. The rest is solid but nothing to write home about. Overall average not my favorite as far as the pumpkin category but ranks high in my lager category. I'm just not a lager guy.

Orange amber pour with a white head that disappeared quickly to zilch. No lace.

Smells of nutmeg, caramel malt and spices.

Taste is initially interesting with nice nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin favors but it fades quickly into a sweet malty base and a thin, watery mouthfeel.

There are better pumpkin brews.

This poured out as a Clear looking amber color. The head was a little on the soapy looking side. The lacing was minimal and the retention wasn't overly impressive. The smell of the beer has some lager yeast aromas as well as the traditional pumpkin spice notes. The taste of the beer has an earthy spiced flavor through that mixed with the sweetness of the malts. The mouthfeel is on the thinner side with I feel it should be heavier. Overall this isn't a bad brew, just not one of my favorites.
