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).

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Really didn’t know what to think of this one, but I liked it. Pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the ginger with some pilsner malt thrown in. The ginger also dominates the flavor. There is a bit of pilsner malt. I get a slight amount of bitterness from the hops but no real hop flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice.

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.

Sample at Kurtkeller 001: Pumpkin-tastic 01 on 11/22/2013. Pours a hazed yellow color with a medium thick bubbly white head that evaporates gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ginger and malt. Light-bodied with lots of ginger flavor up front, along with some toasty malt and hops behind it. The finish is akin to ginger ale with a spiced aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 On tap at Churchkey. Clear yellow pour with white head. Aroma is quite dominated by ginger, some pumpkin pie notes, cinnamon, hints of fresh grain. Taste is light and spicy, lots of cinnamon. Palate is light and moderately carbonated. Fun and original.

golden with a smaller white head decent lacing... nice big ginger aroma, bold... flavor is very much ginger with a little spice underneath, followed by an abrupt finish pilsener style... medium thin body easy drinking except for the harshness of the ginger finish...

This beer smells very good, nice scent of ginger. Appearance is a nice golden color. The taste is very overwhelmingly of ginger and leaves a strong ginger aftertaste. Not bad but not favorite.

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

Quite an interesting brew here. Definitely need to enjoy ginger to like this one. Can’t taste much pumpkin, definitely ginger though. I enjoyed it.
