08.26.14 Date of birth.
Poured from a bomber into a beer can glass on 09.10.14.

A: 2 finger head. See though orange. Head recedes to 1 finger after a minute. Has nice lacing.

S: Pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg. Some brown sugar and pumpkin pie crust, but not as strong as in other pumpkin beers.

T: Nutmeg, cinnamon are dominant. Pumpkin seeds are there too.

M: Creamy. Feels too watery.

O: I wanted to like this one based on the ratings, but this did not even come close to other pumpkin ales *cough* Pumking. I did not get any pumpkin flavor, which I thought was because maybe the bottle was from the year before. (The place that I bought it from recycled last year's ST Warlock). The bottle was fresh, though, so that wasn't the cause. Spices aren't even very prominent. This was disappointingly mild all around. It also had too much bitterness on the back end, which I've experienced before with other Elysian beers. Honestly, the bitterness grew to overwhelm what little flavor that there was. Unbalanced, and not worth the price at $10.99 in the Seattle area. Drain pour.
