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).

Slightly hazy with medium head. Spicy ginger in the aroma. Ginger in the taste with a nice spicy hop finish. Thick for a pilsner. I really didn’t think I’d like this "pumpkin pilsner", but I love it. Worked well for me.

Tap at Green Dragon. More ginger than any beer I’ve had...including ginger beers. Spicy and yummy.

I like ginger. But this beer is unbalanced, far too heavily weighted in ginger. There's some pumpkin trying to come through, but it keeps getting squashed by the ginger. C+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This beer was terrible. Slightly cloudy, dark gold color. No head, no lace. Smells like a ginger scented candle. Taste....awful.

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.

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.

Large format bottle from the four pack of Elysian pumpkin beers. This beer was like drinking ginger in not a good way. It was terrible.

Tried at Snallygaster Fest in D.C. Golden color with white head. Light pumpkin spice aroma. Some caramel flavor followed by pumpkin spice flavors and some hops.

You better like ginger because this is a ginger bomb more ginger then anything. Poor is very pleasing cloudy yellow with a large white,bubbly head that sticks to glass. Has the ginger heat and will marry well with sushi or any other lite fish. Couldn’t drink many but very good for what it is.

Draft at Iron Hill West Chester. Poured amber in color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of wet grain, ginger, spices. Taste is bready with some light ginger, spices and lightly hoppy finish. Pretty thin overall. Not my thing.
