On tap. Great palate cleanser or finish to a heavy meal. If you like Ginger you will like this. Some times you need a Pilsner style with bold flavors.

Had on tap. Pretty excellent balance of pumpkin and ginger considering pumpkin is a light flavor and ginger can be so powerful.

I am now committed to reducing, if not eradicating, my backlog of bottles and I have taken to enlisting aid in doing so. The real logjam comes in the form of bombers. Do not misunderstand me, I am capable of drinking the contents of a bomber by myself, but I am hesitant to do so. Bomb(er)s away! This is my 2,700th review, BTW.

Justin Chlan and I were now joined by one of my former mentors, Tom "Beek" Biechler on the porch.

From the bottle: "Ginger Pumpkin Pils Malt Beverage Brewed with Pumpkin and Ginger"; "Hansel and Gretel is of the lighter pumpkin fare - spiced with fresh ginger and hopped with lots of Czech Saaz hops."; "Brewhouse [:] Elysian Brewing Company operates three brewpubs in the city of Seattle and has won Large brewpub and Brewmaster of the Year three times at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado."; "Cheers! [undersigned] Dick Cantwell, Head Brewer".

I got the cap off and poured for each of us, producing a finger of yellowish head with good retention. Color was a slightly hazy light-yellow (SRM = 2). Nose was redolent with ginger! It should have read "... Brewed with Ginger and Pumpkin", instead. Mouthfeel was light, not thin, but very effervescent. The taste was almost completely ginger. Finish was super-dry with the ginger flavor actually ramping up in intensity at the extreme finish. Wow! This would be fantastic with sushi and as a palate cleanser, it was a welcome change of pace. However, I would recommend against an entire bomber to oneself (which I did not do, BTW).

22oz bottle
poured into a glass, it has a hazy gold color body with a very little head. The smell is ginger. The taste is up front ginger and some spiceyness from the ginger. I wish the pumpkin would come through more. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall if you like ginger, you will like this beer. It is a good pilsner.
