Bottle. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of heavy ginger, toast, and light citrus. Flavor of strong spicy ginger, pale malts, citrus and was lightly bitter. A ginger bomb

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy yellow with a small head. The nose smells like the ginger you get with your sushi. The flavor is ginger overload and a strong, dry bitterness. The pumpkin is completely covered up by the ginger. It was a struggle to get the glass down and I certainly didnt want another. With some balance this combination might be good, but this aint balanced.

Tap at the Blind Tiger for Elysians Pumpkin Beer night. Spicy hop and spicy pumpkin pie nose. Very clean and squashy. Lively, smooth, spicy flavor, with a refreshing, grainy finish. Good stuff.

Draft @ Elysian Tangletown. Pours a bright, clear golden-orange color; thin white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Basic candy sugar and light spicing in the aroma; sweet, with minimal pumpkin. Lively carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: lots of ginger (reasonably soft), candy sugar, and light pumpkin spicing; a touch astringent and medicinal, but also nicely dry; basic candy sugar maltiness. Medium finish: sugar, lingering slightly-rough spicing with ginger and allspice at the end.

Draft @ blind tiger. Lighter amber. A pretty nice blend of pumpkin and pils. Not a lot to say other than that.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has some orange and ginger along with bread. Taste has a lot of ginger and a bit of pepper. The pumpkin is subdued.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger: Pours a pale golden with a collapsing white head. Has a fresh aroma- lots of fresh ginger, with an underlying lemon zest and peppery saaz notes. The body is light and crisp. The fore flavor is a solid punch of fresh ginger- very fresh and natural. The spiciness is followed by a quick biscuity base and a late flowery note. The finish is peppery with saaz dryness. I love that they incorporated the spices with a Pilsner. Interesting and solid.
