Bottle. Pours copper/orange. Thin white head that dissipate quickly. The aroma is nice. Pumpkin pie spices with a hint of citrus. Taste is nutmeg dominated. Not unpleasant, but high in the spice addition. Slight caramel flavor. Thin mouth feel. Overall a decent attempt at a fall beer. Would wonder if aging this beer could improve it.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2014 12 oz bottle from Whole Foods Market in Hillsboro, OR. Initial nose has strong gingerbread and fall baking spices. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth, but surprisingly watery and thin, contrary to expectations from the appearance and aroma. Spices and mild sweetness are both present from front to finish and briefly in the aftertaste. Finish is slightly astringent (likely from the spices), and the subdued hops make a mild a short bitter appearance. I enjoyed the spice flavor and the sweetness, but I would prefer it to be a much higher gravity beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma was a very strong fall season smell. Like a high end candle. The taste was a bit like I took a bite of that over-fragrant candle. The spices were not subtle at all and overall just too much for me to consider it a great seasonal.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark amber to mahogany color, hazy, with compact head. Aroma of malt and cinnamon, maybe nutmeg, better than most pumpkin beers but still unimaginative. Smooth mouthfeel; some malt and caramel flavor, moderately sweet, and clearly spiced. The final becomes lightly minty.
Pumpkin beers are useless, but the Elysian one as usual is well brewed.

brokensail (11613) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Elysian Capitol Hill. Golden pour with white foam. What the h...smells more like white grape juice than anything. Sort of goopy and tons of caramel. A bit of grass and toasted bread. Flavor is tons of caramel and toast. Some squash flowers, mild spice, and white grape. Disappointing.

Niall73 (1873) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Tap at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma has lots of sweet cinnamon spiciness - mulling spices. Light body, medium carbonation. Caramel, lemon, cinnamon, light apple, cloves... Not my thing but OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3812) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at a beer festival. Pours a hazy amber color. Nose has a lot of pumpkin on there, with quite a lot of the typical spices to it. Taste is slightly sweet and very smooth and very spicy. Much better than I was anticipating...

Pours a yellowish copper with an ample white head. Aroma of cinnamon and ginger. Taste is spicy with a dry and slightly bittering finish. Cinnamon and what tasted like fiber with a little pumpkin pie thrown in. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bookseeb (118) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Appearance is a cloudy burnt orange with minimal head and lace. Smell reminds me of fall with the pumpkin spice and the sweet malt. Taste is just as nice as the aroma carrying the same characteristics with that touch of hops for balance. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

Bottled. Pours a orange hue with little head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, sugar, some apple. very sweet with big pumpkin spice. Flavor is lots of nice pumpkin spice without being overbearing. Not too sweet, just right. Wow, I"m impressed. Very good pumpkin beer this. Spot on.
