Unbelievable Pumpkin beer. Had it out of the 22oz bomber, on tap, and now the 16oz bottle. Just the right amount of pumpkin flavor without overpowering it, this is my go-to fall beer.

I snapped this up at the liquor store yesterday. First pumpkin beer of the season! I'm looking forward to a few weeks from now, when there will be about a dozen different kinds for me to try.

Pours a cloudy brown. Aroma of wet pumpkin plus pumpkin pie spices. Taste is pumpkin pie in a bottle. No pumpkin beer I've tried before tasted this much like pumpkin pie. Very nice!

One of the better pumpkin beers available. On the first taste, my only thought was "This actually tastes like pumpkin!" I may just be used to terrible pumpkin beers, but this is absolutely fantastic - which is par for the course for Elysian.
