Average pumpkin beer. A little sour, lite on flavor and aroma. I'd defer to other Elysian fall offerings, and you should too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Rattle íní Hum, NYC tap: Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma is really spicy... cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger (lots of ginger), with a nice malty backbone. Taste is kind of sweet and the spices dominate the taste about as much as it could be. This gives a really unique taste. Not exactly my favorite thing, but this is a pumpkin ale very much unlike the standard kind of pumpkin ale you usually see.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2162) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle. 5.9% It pours a lovely amber brown with a thin light beige head. The aroma is a delicious fruity cinnamon, allspice & a hint of ginger. Medium bodied with a spicy ginger, cloves & cinnamon flavor with a nutty biscuity maltiness. Very well balanced spices, a great/wonderful pumpkin ale.

This has the best mix of pumpkin and spices that ive tried thus far. Perfect if you arent looking for a heavy abv. Also much more affordable than the more expensive specialty pumpkin ales with just as good a taste.. Which is all that matters.

UXO (259) - CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
Pours a clear pale to medium amber with a short, short-lived off-white head, minimal lacing. Nose is moderate to strong pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, caramel. Taste is initially moderate sweet pumpkin pie followed by mild to moderate bitter, building spice. Medium body, moderate sustained carbonation, with a dry, strongly bitter finish. Wow! Another good pumpkin beer! Thatís two this year! I think this one might be just slightly better than the Sam Adams - a little more pumpkin pie-ish - even though the sweetness might be a bit much if one were to have more than one. Nice balance of real pumpkin flavour and traditional pumpkin pie spices, with a decent underlying ale. I might not say yes to a second one, but I would say yes to another one, should the opportunity arise. Get it now while itís fresh, because I can see this dimming significantly with age.

Salmoniform (823) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with creamy off white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet (but not cloying) with a slight spice astringentness following and clean finish. Overall this is a nice pumpkin brew.

RABinCO (1364) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2014
On draft. Deep cloudy orange pour. No head. Aroma is big on cinnamon applesauce. Taste is a pumpkin pie bomb up front followed by a pleasant earthiness. Hits on a couple of different notes. Better than your average pumpkin beer, but not near the top of my list.

Bottle. Dark hazy copper with a thin white head. Aroma is pumpkin with lots of cinnamon and a hint of ginger. Taste follows and adds a touch of clove. Medium creamy mouthfeel and light carb. Pretty good.

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
"this one, though i have lots of respect for Elysian, was a huge surprise. started with this and by the end of the night, it was still my clear favorite, and probably the best pumpkin beer iíve ever had (at the time). aroma was simply magnificent. if you like pumpkin, this is it! get it fresh. THE most natural pumpkin aroma that kept my nose returning to it all night. lighter abv but full flavored, smooth, medium bodied. spices were not overdone and there was an additional toasted character that fit the beer well. biggest surprise in a while. for my money - kicked pumkingís butt!! 11/10-just as nice on tap. best beer there! 10/11-almost as nice. almost.
