When you absolutely, positively got to carve every pumpkin the the room - a seasonal version of our regular (and occassional) malt liquor AK-47. Brewed with pale malt with dextrose and pumpkin added to the mash and boil. Hopped with German Northern Brewer and colored with Yellow#6.

On tap at Falling Rock. Pours with a lightly hazed copper hued body with minimal head. Aromas are sweet, malty, corn, spice and light DMS/vegital. Flavors are very sweet, fruity, estery, plum, corn and a bit of grainy/caramel maltiness (munich even?). Medium to low bubbles, thin.

Elysian must be located right next to a pumpkin farm! The aroma is corn, malt, fusels, and pumpkin, exactly like pumpkin thrown into a malt liquor. The appearance is a clear orange, white head. Here’s where it gets interesting. The flavor is bready, boozy, sweet pumpkin. Medium in body, oily mouthfeel. The finish is a burn form fusel alcohol, light noble hops. Not bad. They definietly improved upon the standard malt liquor here. Points for being interesting.

Draft at Blind Tiger, with Reuben & Jen, as part of their pumpkin Promo. 15 lines i believe. All sampled as 5oz pours. One of the worst of the night. Pale malty beer with a hint of pumpkin, but mostly cheep corn.

Draft @ Elysian Tangletown. Pours a brilliantly bright orange color; light orange head; looks kind of like orange soda. Basic sugar and candy in the aroma; very light nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy, viscous candy sugar, malty sweetness, oranges, and very light spicing; intense, slightly warming beer with lots of candy sugar, but definitely not bad at all. A bit heavy. Lengthy finish: some numbing mineral bitterness, candy sugar, and lots of sweetness and sugar.

2011 GBPF. Ha! This looks awesome! Food coloring gives it a proper pumpkin-orange color. Probably the most pumpkin looking beer at the festival. Smells and tastes slightly fruity and flat. Interesting. I could probably drink this from a 40.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Corny and pumpkiny aroma. The flavor has a bit of a grainy base with light pumpkin notes. Not bad.

Tap @ Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Beer Fest... Poured a pretty cool, vibrant, bright orange with a white head. Looked great in the pumpkin snifter. This beers just overly sweet and not much else. Like liquid candy.

On tap at The Blue Tusk. Very malt liquor with deep secondary pumpkin taste. Not so great to drink, though taste is passable.

Orange pour with a spice and pumpkin aroma. Spice flavor with pumpkin and some alcohol. Decent for the style.
