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).

(Draught) Sampled at Elysian Pumpkin Beer Festival on October 20, 2007. Lasting thin white foamy head and clear amber body. Nose of catnip, ginger. Very ginger flavour. Nice switch-up beer at this festival.

Tap at Blind Tiger: Pours a pale golden with a collapsing white head. Has a fresh aroma- lots of fresh ginger, with an underlying lemon zest and peppery saaz notes. The body is light and crisp. The fore flavor is a solid punch of fresh ginger- very fresh and natural. The spiciness is followed by a quick biscuity base and a late flowery note. The finish is peppery with saaz dryness. I love that they incorporated the spices with a Pilsner. Interesting and solid.

Tap at Blind Tiger. A solid pilsner with a strong emphasis on the pumpkin. Enough said.

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.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has some orange and ginger along with bread. Taste has a lot of ginger and a bit of pepper. The pumpkin is subdued.

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.

Real hazy. Harsh, dry, fibrous and woody nose. Some sweet, bright tingles, super hot and fresh ginger flavour. This COULD be the best HOTDog ever. Medicinal. Oops. I forgot that this was a pumpkin beer. Ginger pilsner maybe...

2013-02-02. Hazy bright pastel yellow body, small white head. 3+ Strong ginger character in both aroma and flavour, mild pale malt sweetness and lingering ginger. Average plus palate. 3+ Decent, lots of ginger throughout so your enjoyment will be dependent on how much you like that. On tap at Blue Monk, Buffalo

This beer really grew on me. I hated it at first, then as I drank it the more flavors started coming out. Aroma was weak and a little broing. Light pilsner malt was all that I could detect. Pour was a nice hazy light yellow with a one finger white head. Taste was delicious. One of the better session beers I’ve had in a while. Starts with the sweet pilsner malt in the beginning which quickly gives way to spicy ginger. The ginger dominates the flavor until the hops kick in and bring the gulp to a bitter finish. The aftertaste is a mix of bitter noble hops and ginger. No pumpkin is detected. The mouth is actually left tingly from the ginger and heavy carbonation. Great surprise!
