COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at our stadium location Elysian Fields brewery in Seattle. Brewed with organic pale, Weyermann Munich and Cara-Hell malts, with pumpkin added in the mash, kettle and fermenter. Spiced with peeled and pureed fresh ginger in the boil and bright tank and hopped with lots of Czech Saaz hops (otherwise it wouldn’t be traditional).

draft at Iron Hill WC... very little pumpkin flavor, taste more of the ginger and malts... after taste is terrible, not a fan of Elysian when they use Czech Saaz

Hazy dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of ginger, grass, toast, pumpkin, and spices. Taste of ginger, citrus, toast, grassy hops, metal, and a dry finish.

Tap at IH WC during Gathering of the Gourds 2009. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of ginger, cookies, noble hops and bready malt. Flavor of the same but the beer was a bit too thin.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Tap at the Blind Tiger for Elysian’s Pumpkin Beer night. Spicy hop and spicy pumpkin pie nose. Very clean and squashy. Lively, smooth, spicy flavor, with a refreshing, grainy finish. Good stuff.

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a hazy golden-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is heavy ginger with a bit of earthy notes thrown in for good measure. Tastes like a straight pilsner, with a grain characteristic and some Saaz hops, in the beginning, and the finish is heavy heavy on the ginger. I enjoyed it - but avoid if ginger is not your thing.

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Hazy amber with a biege head. Huge grassy, ganja smoke aroma with mild ginger root. Medium body. Good medium sweet lager malt base brew meshing nicely with sharp ginger and spicy hops. Draft@ Pumpkinfest2009.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Grassy and bready nose with a touch of spice. Golden bright beer with a thin fluffy head. Nice pils flavors of bread, grass, lemon. Spice is light and secondary in this one. Light, refreshing, and really pleasant actually.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Draft @ Elysian Tangletown. Pours a bright, clear golden-orange color; thin white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Basic candy sugar and light spicing in the aroma; sweet, with minimal pumpkin. Lively carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: lots of ginger (reasonably soft), candy sugar, and light pumpkin spicing; a touch astringent and medicinal, but also nicely dry; basic candy sugar maltiness. Medium finish: sugar, lingering slightly-rough spicing with ginger and allspice at the end.

BrewDad (4996) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Taster - Elysian Tangletown - GPBF 2008 - Seattle, WA
Aroma – A weak pumpkin aroma. Just a malty pils aroma.
Appearance – Light golden color, Clear with a nice head.
Flavor – Very nice pils flavor. This was a good beer but with the pumpkin it was totally lacking.
Palate – Light Mouthfeel, OK texture with a dry finish.
Overall – The beer was missing the Pumpkin flavor. Had very very light spice flavors and aromas.

Draft at Elysian Great Pumpkin Beer Fest (GPBF) 08. Crystal clear medium gold with a light white head. Nutty, earthy, leafy nose. Light watery body with some fizz. Nut, earth, and leaf return on the mid-palate. Mild finish. A shockingly good little beer.
