Poured a clear, ruby-tinted orange with a finger of off-white head. Aroma is a touch sweet and reminiscent of cinnamon hard candy.

Moderate carbonation and a light, slightly thin mouthfeel. Cinnamon blast up front with caramel, light molasses, and pumpkin followed by more cinnamon and nutmeg on the tail end.

Quite nice -- kind of reminiscent of chai tea in the way the cinnamon and pumpkin cooperate. Make no mistake, though, cinnamon is definitely the star of the show.

Beer 9/12 in the Apocalypse Series.

From the label: "Beer #9: BLIGHT will sustain you with an ale of pumpkin, dark brown sugar and a jolt of fiery Vietnamese cinnamon."

Amber with a solid sheet of light cream foam and excellent clarity. No lace. Lots of cinnamon, a bit of malt, but mostly cinnamon, cinnamon and som more cinnamon. Taste carries through with more cinnamon, and a good dose of malty character and some nice bits of sweet molasses. This reminds me of Cocoa Mole "Light". This is the best of all the pumpkin beers Elysian makes. They should replace the Night Owl with this recipe. Medium on full bodied with a nice soft carb and an off dry finish. Good beer. I will buy more.
