Pint In Hand: Lakefront Brewery Pumpkin Lager

For most, the transition into fall begins with Labor Day weekend or the first chilly night of the summer. For me (and probably many Milwaukeeans alike) it cannot possibly be fall unless Lakefront Pumpkin Lager has hit the shelves. As Lakefront's fall seasonal beer, it is made in limited quantities and only supplied from Late August to Early November. The flavors are rich with pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and cardamon -- supplied by Milwaukee's Spice House--and yes, real pumpkin. There are quite a few pumpkin beers available today. "Produce" beers, beers made from spinach, beets, etc. seem to be trending. But Lakefront's is the only lager on the market. Therefore, it's weightier, more complex, and more intoxicating. It's definitely a sit-down-and-sip type of beer. After a good meal, it's like a liquid pumpkin pie dessert.
