16oz glass at the Underground at the tail end of their Elysian tap takeover. A nitrogenated pumpkin ale, apparently.

This beer appears a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of puffy and certainly creamy ecru head, which leaves some splendid patchy lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of mildly vegetal pumpkin mash, bready caramel malt, faint cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg spice, and earthy, leafy, and weedy hops. The taste is again light on the pumpkin, with a more doughy bready caramel malt presiding, and the expected previous seasonal spices duly stepping out the door, alongside the bored seeming hops.

The bubbles are quite soft and fluffy, the body an adequate medium weight, and well smooth, with a generally airy creaminess. It finishes off-dry, and more like an ineptly hopped pale ale, than an Elysian pumpkin offering.

Yeah, not a particularly good pumpkin ale, even with the smooth nitro treatment. Mostly just plainly vegetal, and not really worth the sawbuck this is going to wind up costing me.
