(Draught) Pours a clear orange body with a spare white head. Aroma of pumpkin, grain, and caramel. Flavor of corn, pumpkin, and caramel.

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.

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

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

On tap at Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Fest 2011. Colour... a truly orange colour with no head. Nose... corn sirop, malt sirop and honey. Palate... plenty of corn up front (which is what I’d expect from a malt liquor) then a wave of sweet spice (nutmeg?) and clover honey followed by a grainy finish with hints of pumpkin and notes of ethanol. All in all not a bad ML.

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.

2011 Elysian GPBF #14. brilliant copper color/ ivory head. Corn syrup, cranberry, pumpkin meat, bready malt aromas. Rich, smooth mouthfeel. Nice mix of sweet pumpkin, corn syrup, berry fruit, bready pale malt flavors--not too bad.

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 @ Capitol Hill as part of the Pumpkin Fest leftovers; ymmmm, leftovers; comes all fancy and stuff in big stemmed glass; glowing orange, creamy white head with a nose full of spice, lemon, nutmeg, white sugar; creamy, sugary mouthfeel with a flavor profile closer to a sweet belgian spice beer than malt liquor; kind of hard to believe that this is actually the malt liquor base; in any event, it’s quite tasty overall and ticked down a bit for not really being a malt liquor ;)

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.
