I've classified this as a pumpkin ale even though no pumpkin was used, but the butternut squash in this brew mimics the use of pumpkin and it was brewed for the Elysian pumpkinfest. I've had to make the same choice when adding a sweeet potato beer to the database, and I think pumpkin ales best captures the spirit of the brews in question. This one was brewed with Two-Row, Crystal, and aromatic malts as well as roasted butternut squash. Hopped with Tettnanger hops.

This poured an orange amber with a good head and lacing. The aromas are highly unusual with roasted butternut squash up front followed by burnt sugar and notes of butterscotch at the end. The taste has noree of that butternut flavor. Not quite as sweet as pumpkin, and more vegetal in quality. No spicing in this offering, which in some ways makes it more "pure" than pie-like as are many other pumpkin offerings. There are some slight floral hops on the finish. Mouthfeeel is light andd slightly slick. Not bad, and the brewers are to be applauded for their creativity. Very unusual. After tasting it I'd like to taste a roasted pumpkin ale that was unspiced as well- or a spiced butternut squash ale.
