22 oz. bomber from Liquid Solutions,

A: Pours a beautiful pumpkin orange colour, with a solid, slightly fizzy white head. Some lace which is extremely rare in a Pumpkin Ale.

S: A lot more pumpkin flesh, squash character at first, the spice notes are light in the nose, I get nutmeg and clove distinctly, and a bit of spiced cream.

T: The spice and cream notes from the nose continue in the taste where they are met by the distinct pumpkin. Allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg are clearly evident, the beer ends on a full clove bite. Let it roll over the tongue a couple of times ere the swallow as it continues to evolve with each moment.

M: Nice body for a pumpkin beer, I find that many pumpkin brews are overly light and fizzy, but this has a nice heft to it, yet it's light enough for easy drinking.

D: Very easy to drink, I could have finished the bomber in 5 minutes, it's that drinkable, however, I milked it a bit since this is the only bottle I have of this. Excellent pumpkin ale, I hear Elysian are coming into the Southland soon, this beer made a great first impression.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a mug. 12/14/08. Best by date of 12/26/08.

Pours a bright orange-copper color with about a finger of soft beige head. Aroma is filled with pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove.

Taste follows the aroma and then some. Lots of pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Underneath all that is a nice sweet malt base. Tastes like liquid pumpkin pie. Very nice balance between pumpkin and spices.

Feel is smooth with a light-medium body. Carbonation is a bit low. It's not fizzy like most pumpkin beers, it's smooth and creamy. Drinkability is pretty good. Goes down real easily and has a very balanced taste.

Overall, a very good pumpkin beer. It's like pumpkin pie in a bottle.
