Pours dark tan to light brought with a variety of hues at avery level. Beautiful! Nice spice aroma. Clean but sturdy malt and sweet but not too much. Really nice pumpkin.

Oakes (12608) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
Bright amber colour. Gorgeous nutmeg & gourd character. Lots of caramel, too. There is a lot of spice in this, but it’s beautifully balanced with lots of malt and pumpkin. Dry, clovey, nutmeggy finish. Excellent - maybe my all time pumpkin classic.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Clear copper pour with a short, dense white head. Sweet caramel, bread, and cooked pumpkin aroma. A little spice on both the aroma and flavor, but it’s not as pie spice laden as a lot of pumpkin beers. Moderately strong body on it. Doesn’t seem to have the diacetyl issue a lot of Elliott Bay beers have had, has a strong caramel and cooked pumpkin flavor with a moderately bitter finish on it and a little alcohol warmth. Nice and strongly pumpkiny. I liked this more than I was expecting to.

Great dark pour and robust, roasty spice. Deep flavor, quite a good pumpkin.

pdx77 (1370) - Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2013
On draught at 2013 Hopworks Biketobeerfest. Deep hazy copper amber color. Sweet smashed pumpkin aroma. Taste is sweet corn syrup, pumpkin pie filling, nutmeg. Great pumpkin flavor; could be too sticky sweet for some, but I appreciate it.

ACHops (691) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Growler from Elliott Bay Lake City. Pours bright orange amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet floral pumpkin pie spice and some malt in the background. Taste is smooth rich caramel malt with big spicy pumpkin flavors in the finish. Quite sweet, though with the body to balance it out. Pumpkin pie spice notes are a bit cloying, but pretty well balanced relative to most big pumpkin beers out there. One of the better pumpkin beers, and like all of Elliott Bay’s, only available on draft.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2010 Deep orange amber with ring of head. Easy pumpkin spice aroma. Easy ginger-pumpkin flavor subtle if understated. Easy drinking pumpkin-influenced beer. Re-rated 10/16/10: Natural pumpkin & squash flavor delicately infused with pumpkin spices. One of the better and more natural tasting pumpkin ales out there.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Comfort beer? Warm aroma is lots of flesh and some nutmeg. Orange brown, small head. Pumpkin forward, light on the spices. Bitter flesh provides balance.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Draft @ Elysian Tangletown. Pours a deep, bright ruby-amber color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Dense amounts of cola, red fruits, and soft pumpkin pie spicing in the aroma; nice and warming. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: dense, chewy dried red fruits, cola, and sweet maltiness; definitely on the sweet, slightly syrupy side, but generous and tasty overall; just a bit sweet. Lengthy finish: dried red fruits, sugar, light spicing; still a sweet ending.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours an orange red with minimal head. Aromas of sugar, slight hint of cinnamon, nutmeg. Full palate. Tastes toasted, of squash of course, and the cloves linger. It’s a different pumpkin.
