The beer pours decently with a nice solid reddissh orange color to it, a mild white orange head and some lacing on the glass. The beer smells decent with a prominent cinnamon and nutmeg smell, mild allspice and pumpkin on the back end. The taste is great with a heavy mix of spices on the front end and a decent pumpkin pie taste on the back end. The mouthfeel was great as the beer is well carbonated, a medium body, and left your mouth spicey. Overall, a really good pumpkin ale but a little heavy on the spice and it takes away from the pumpkin.

12oz bottle thanks to dmac. Drank this bad boy piss warm after a long night of work. Poured into a clear solo cup. Appearance is a cloudy copper color with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, and yeast. Taste of fresh pumpkin bread, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and a lingering lemon sourness in the finish.

A nice pumpkin beer. Aroma and taste were full of pumpkin pie spice. They tend to go heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg at Elysian, but that’s fine with me. A little thin mouth feel but not bad. Finish is ginger bread and hard cinnamon candy. Mild carbonation. Solid pumpkin beer

Jabic (405) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Ar: Deep sticky caramel - lots of ginger, some clove notes - smells just like fresh pumpkin pie. Ap: Hazy orange-amber - small light tan head with moderate-low retention - leaves a very thin film of foam and a sudsy ring. T: Sweet malt with a deep ginger flavor - prickly, almost minty, clove flavor - deeply toasted, lots of sweet caramel, without being cloying - toasted malt and prickly spice finish. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium. O: Delicious pumpkin beer, one of the best I’ve had this season - the ginger and clover are really bright, and the malt sweetness mingles perfectly with the spices to really give the impression of liquid pumpkin pie.

I love this beer. Has a strong Pumpkin flavor and they really grab the essence of fall. Definitely not a subtle pumpkin beer!

Nice orange-amber color with a decent head but fades rather quickly. Aroma is strong with pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Smells like fresh pumpkin roll out of the oven. The taste is pumpkin pie and the mouthfeel is fluffy. That’s fresh tasting and quite complex. I really like this brew. It’s certainly different than most pumpkin beers and the flavors are just phenomenal!

Hazy orange/amber. Thin white head, nice lacing. Fantastic pumpkin, cinnamon, spice nose. Creamy pumpkin start, a tad tart that quickly disappears. Broad sweetness, but mostly spices (clove?). Smooth creamy mouthfeel with just enough carbonation. If you like pumpkins and pumpkin pie, this is a phenomenal beer.

22 oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $3.99 Pours a slight murky amber colour, largish creamy/bubbly off white head. Wow very fresh pumpkin pie aroma!! pumpkin clove and cinnamon..i can even ( probably in my mind) small some whipped cream on top!.Great stuff. Taste is very similar like drinking a pumpkin pie smoothie with a dash of alcohol..lovely. Nice mouth feel.. smooth and low carbonation. Overall one of the best if not THE best Pumpkin Ale i have had..though even with that recommendation one would be enough!
