10th October 2008. GABF. Clear brown beer. Tastes of pumpkin and not just spice which is always a result with this style. The spice is pleasingly subtle. Not bitter or dry.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
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.

harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2006
On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Copper, lasting beige head. Spice powder aroma, cinnamon and nutmeg. My first pumpkin ale. Oh god this is horrible. Not badly made, but just not my bag.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Copper-amber colour. Cinnamon, nutmeg and clove aroma, with soft caramel maltiness. Sweet flavour is heavy on the cinnamon, with accents of clove and rich caramel maltiness. Sticky sweet spicy finish. Pretty good balance between the malt and spice, but not such good balance between malt and hops. Might be mullable, though, which is a neat bonus feature.
