(bottle - 22 oz) Clear amber color with a thin and fizzy off-white head. Aroma is light and creamy with good hints of pumpkin, cream, light spice including cinnamon, nutmeg, and some allspice. Flavor is very light on the pumpkin with a good mix of the sweet spices. Pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg come through the strongest with a nice hint of pumpkin seeds at the back and a clean finish. Very nice pumpkin ale.

Thee best pumpkin ale I have yet to try. Pour is a clear amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie without the crust. Flavor is the same BUT balanced out with hops and not so powerful as in most pumpkin ales.

Skyview (5296) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Received 22-oz bomber from 5000. Pours a semi-clear amber brew with a thin off-white head that dissipates to a thin white ring and film top. Aroma of pumpkin pie filling with nutmeg, cloves, and roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of golden grain and caramel malt, lighter pumpkin and spice character and more nutmeg. Finish is smooth, a little on the watery side but still has a mild pumpkin and spice aftertaste that quickly disappears. One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve tried.

Arayaga2 (1901) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Mostly clear amber with almost no white head. Aroma is nice and pumpkin spiced with prominent nutmeg. That carries into the taste, but the pumpkin is not so prominent. Weird mineral aftertaste, and this needs more body. It’s like mineral water that has been tainted with spices $5/22 0z

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Poured with an amber color and smelling of pumpkin and spice. The flavor reminded me more of a malty pale ale than a pumpkin ale. The pumpkin just didn’t come through and the spices just gave it a bit of a kick. It was just a decent drinking beer, nothing special.

Slipstream (2218) - USA - OCT 20, 2008
Sweet, spicy pumpkin pie aroma. Amber pour with tiny head. A light-bodied brew with a mild, sweet pumpkin spice flavor. A touch of skank is present as well. I agree with the other reviewers that the flavor and body does not live up to the promise of the scent. This is my first brew from Elysian, and I was hoping for something better.

m4rest88 (387) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Pours with an amber hue with virtually no head. The aroma is of sweet pumpkin pie, nuts, and nutmeg, pie crust, and wood. Some barnyard funk too. The flavor is strongly of pumpkin, with some mint flavors in it as well. Feels watery to the palate, and has light carbonation.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Orange in color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and spicy with notes of pumpkin pie and nutmeg with a hint of leather. The flavor is of pumpkin pie with a minty undertone. The texture was watery. Overall it was good even though the texture was a let down. It’s a weird brew, but it isn’t bad.

Pours with a thickish, off-white head and a clear orange body with good lacing. Aroma of pumking pie, in a sweet scent full of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is not as strong or sweet as the aroma. Taste is pumkin, spices, some mint (in the finish, tastes a bit like you have just brushed your teeth). Water like mouthfeel. Light carbonation.
