A terrific pumpkin ale, was surprised to see this rated a little low. the aroma and color are all exactly what i’d want for a pumpkin ale, the taste could be a little higher in abv, a little more kick, but still great.

Slight cinnamon spice aroma.... Nutmeg, pumpkin... Flavor is fairly light and watery, but notes of pumpkin and spices present... Not that strong of a pumpkin beer, but decent.... Probably would have added another 150 lbs of pumpkin to it....

22oz. A nice change up from the high octane 22oz pumpkins. Pours a lighter orange hue, white fluffy head. The aromas are nice, spice, nutmeg, a little cinnamon, nothing over powering. Smooth across the palate, lighter fleshier flavors of pumpkin in the background, slight bitterness, spice is balanced. Really nice for the lower ABV.

Pours a slightly amber orange color with a pumpkin aroma and hints of spice. Mostly pumpkin flavor. Not over spiced at all. Very good beer!

A nice cloudy orange-amber body with a white to off white head. Aroma had mostly pumpkin upfront. some spices and caramel malts to balance it out. A good pumpkin flavor too, spices seemed to be a little more prevalent and the malts were just enough to balance out the other flavors. Body was a little thin but not enough to affect the beer negatively.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is nutmeg, cardemomme and cinnamon spiced. Toasted malty, spiced and light caramelish. Bitter, herbal and dry finish.

Def a Pumpkin beer by the aroma and taste, not too strong tasting. Light on the PK but neverthless a decent beer.

Tap @ Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Beer Fest... Poured orange with a white head. Dry, thin body with pumpkin and pie spiced tones. Notes of oat and malt, quite worth with more of that sweetness.

Bomber bottle provided to me by Shawn: Clean deep golden hue with orangy highlights, fading frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of traditional pumpkin pie spices (the ginger and nutmeg shine here) as well a pumpkin puree, caramel and bready malts, just a touch of herbal hops. The taste is actually very restrained and is more Amber Ale than Pumpkin Ale... light spices, some fleshy veggies, and a hint of hop bitters towards the finish. The mouth feel is clean and crisp, thin to medium-bodied with a slight metallic finish. Overall, not a bad session brew but it suffers from the same criticism that I lay upon Greenbush Autumn Ale lineup, simply not spicy enough on the palate, nice nose however. It is tough though because I do not want in your face spice character either...
