For me, a session pumpkin ale that nails it completely. Strong pumpkin ale spices on the nose that follow through in flavor, which is incredibly deep for an ABV of 5.9%. Really, this beer hits all the notes perfectly, without accentuating anything in particular. I would use this to introduce a non-beer drinker to the style. There are better, but this is good.

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!

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

"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 i’ve 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 pumking’s butt!! 11/10-just as nice on tap. best beer there! 10/11-almost as nice. almost.

Poured into a tulip snifter glass Nice reddish Amber color Nose of various spices, but not overwhelming. Pumpkin was subtle and a little understated Very refreshing on the palate, with no lingering finish Overall, very nice. One of my favorite seasonal pumpkin ales so far ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is my favorite of the pumpkin brews as it isn't imperial, has a Tom of pumpkin spice flavor and isn't too sweet. Too many pumpkin beers turn out bland with no body. This beer is the exception. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Poured a hazy dark amber and immediately out of the bottle I caught the sweet smell of pumpkin pie. Hints of cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg also was present there and all this followed through in the taste without disappointment. A fantastic example of this style! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
