COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at our stadium location Elysian Fields brewery in Seattle. Brewed with organic pale, Weyermann Munich and Cara-Hell malts, with pumpkin added in the mash, kettle and fermenter. Spiced with peeled and pureed fresh ginger in the boil and bright tank and hopped with lots of Czech Saaz hops (otherwise it wouldn’t be traditional).

Heavy ginger smell. Light ginger and hop taste. Light to medium carbonation.

Bomber bottle from my neighbor Bob - thanks! From the perspective of someone who ordinarily rejects all things pumpkin, I found this gem to be of a different and pleasing variety. The ginger spicing and balanced hops really make this palatable, so please try a taste, especially if you need converting to the melon mania as I did.

Golden pour, white head. Ginger and pumpkin aroma. Tastes of spicy ginger and has a solid background of pumpkin, mild grain and straw. This is pretty simple, but uses the ginger excellently. It complements the pumpkin and doesn’t overpower. A very nice lighter seasonal.

You better like ginger because this is a ginger bomb more ginger then anything. Poor is very pleasing cloudy yellow with a large white,bubbly head that sticks to glass. Has the ginger heat and will marry well with sushi or any other lite fish. Couldn’t drink many but very good for what it is.

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a hazy golden-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is heavy ginger with a bit of earthy notes thrown in for good measure. Tastes like a straight pilsner, with a grain characteristic and some Saaz hops, in the beginning, and the finish is heavy heavy on the ginger. I enjoyed it - but avoid if ginger is not your thing.

Draft at Iron Hill West Chester. Poured amber in color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of wet grain, ginger, spices. Taste is bready with some light ginger, spices and lightly hoppy finish. Pretty thin overall. Not my thing.

draft at Iron Hill WC... very little pumpkin flavor, taste more of the ginger and malts... after taste is terrible, not a fan of Elysian when they use Czech Saaz

From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a light gold, medium white head. Mose is odd, obvious ginger, slight hop, floral notes. Taste is light bodied, mostly sour with touches of sweetness. Finishes like an IPA with that lingering hopiness. Not really my style here not a big ginger fan.
