Bottle to pint glass Elysian makes a lots of beers with pumpkin, so I'm expecting this to go down well. First impressions gives a strong earthy pumpkin aroma with a little sweetness reminiscent of honey. Later, I get nutmeg, red pepper, and oak. It's a clear reddish amber, but it does have quite a few particulates floating around. The head is creamy, mottled, thin, and tan. The taste is pumpkiny, but also including clove, and maybe nutmeg, but I'm not sure. There's a little caramel sweetness as well and not much bitterness. There's effervescence in the glass, but I don't get that on the palate and hence this ends up being quite creamy and medium bodied.

650ml brown bottle. Pours deep orange, hazy, whipped and creamy and tight white cap on top. Lacing is nice, patchy foam. Nose has cinnamon and cloves. Taste has cloves and cinnamon, ginger with light earthy pumpkins. Spice notes carry into the aftertaste, a very slight note of spice heat in there. Quite a spicy pumpkin beer, yet still mellow and friendly, I liked it.

Ambrée foncé, ou même orange brumeux, avec un col beige moyenne qui demeure longtemps. L’arôme de citrouille, vraiment comme une tarte de citrouille mais pas trop épicé ou sucré. Le goût est d’abord du malt et épices, ensuite un goût terreux de citrouille, comme les graines de citrouille rôti. Bien équilibré, la meilleure bière de citrouille que j’ai essayé à date.

Bottle shared by jack at beer study. Nose is straight up mulled apple Cider, some light cinnamon, pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is okay, a little thinner than the nose suggests. Solid pumpkin ale. Flavor is a little muddled, not quite as full as nose but solid.

Too often, brewers add pumpkin and spices to a subpar beer and move on to the next season. That’s obviously not the case here. Complex and well-balanced pumpkin and spice aroma and flavor with plenty of malty goodness cutting through.

Bottled. A dark orange-amber pour with a light cream head. The aroma is primarily pumpkin. The taste is strong pumpkin and a light malty finish. Overall one of my favorite pumpkin ales.
