3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured pale golden with a thin white head. Nose had ginger and other spices. Ginger was prominent. Nice drinking beer through. Some earthiness and floralness, probably from the Saaz hops. Good level of carbonation too to remind me of the Pils style base. Some notes of pumpkin and pie spice, but like I said, prominent ginger notes.

4oz sampler at the Snallygaster event. Eh, this one was funky - no so much pumpkin but a ginger beer, and there’s simply too much ginger in this one to enjoy. Next time go to have sushi and jam all the shaved ginger into your mouth, that’s this beer. Otherwise finely carbonated. They’d be better off re-branding this as a "ginger" beer, not a pumpkin one.

Bomber bottle from my neighbor Bob - thanks! From the perspective of someone who ordinarily rejects all things pumpkin, I found this gem to be of a different and pleasing variety. The ginger spicing and balanced hops really make this palatable, so please try a taste, especially if you need converting to the melon mania as I did.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Uptown. Pours a light clear, yellow color with a small white head. Smells very strong of ginger. The ginger taste is a little too exotic for me as I prefer hoppy beers. Not very good and I like Elysian beers, especially Loser.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden pour, white head. Ginger and pumpkin aroma. Tastes of spicy ginger and has a solid background of pumpkin, mild grain and straw. This is pretty simple, but uses the ginger excellently. It complements the pumpkin and doesn’t overpower. A very nice lighter seasonal.
