Growler from Elliott Bay Lake City. Pours bright orange amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet floral pumpkin pie spice and some malt in the background. Taste is smooth rich caramel malt with big spicy pumpkin flavors in the finish. Quite sweet, though with the body to balance it out. Pumpkin pie spice notes are a bit cloying, but pretty well balanced relative to most big pumpkin beers out there. One of the better pumpkin beers, and like all of Elliott Bay’s, only available on draft. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 16, 2013
On tap at Elliott bay. Pours out a copper topped with a small sand head. Aroma of spice nutmeg pumpkin and rich malts. Taste is as the aroma with the pumpkin leading the way. This is my first pumpkin beer for the season. It’s a pretty good start. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2013
On draught at 2013 Hopworks Biketobeerfest. Deep hazy copper amber color. Sweet smashed pumpkin aroma. Taste is sweet corn syrup, pumpkin pie filling, nutmeg. Great pumpkin flavor; could be too sticky sweet for some, but I appreciate it. mcberko (18573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
On tap at Elliott Bay Brewpub, pours a hazy pumpkin orange with a small white head. Aroma gives off pumpkin puree and the usual associated spices: nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour of pumpkin puree and t a lesser extent, cinnamon and nutmeg. Not the most full-bodied of pumpkin ales, but nicely flavoured. Solid stuff, for what these gimmicky pumpkin ales can be.

Clear copper pour with a short, dense white head. Sweet caramel, bread, and cooked pumpkin aroma. A little spice on both the aroma and flavor, but it’s not as pie spice laden as a lot of pumpkin beers. Moderately strong body on it. Doesn’t seem to have the diacetyl issue a lot of Elliott Bay beers have had, has a strong caramel and cooked pumpkin flavor with a moderately bitter finish on it and a little alcohol warmth. Nice and strongly pumpkiny. I liked this more than I was expecting to.

Clear amber color/ fleeting head. Mild canned pumpkin pie mix aromas. Light to medium bodied. Mildly astringent nutmeg, allspice flavors with mild, earthy pumpkin flesh, caramel. Served too cold @ Elliott Bay BP. luttonm (6634) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Great dark pour and robust, roasty spice. Deep flavor, quite a good pumpkin. highibus (823) - Vail, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Pours dark tan to light brought with a variety of hues at avery level. Beautiful! Nice spice aroma. Clean but sturdy malt and sweet but not too much. Really nice pumpkin. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours an orange red with minimal head. Aromas of sugar, slight hint of cinnamon, nutmeg. Full palate. Tastes toasted, of squash of course, and the cloves linger. It’s a different pumpkin. bvc (1242) - Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2009
Draft Brouwer’s. Orange amber with creamy off white head. Spicy pumpkin soap nose with yeast wrapping. Thin semi flat and creamy. Spicy, wheat, yeast, kind of soapy...just really kind of plain Jane and nothing I would need to revisit.
