Elysian Brewing Company Night Owl Pumpkin Ale

This beer was the last beer from a twenty-four mix pack I received as a Christmas gift. This beer is Night Owl Pumpkin Ale from Elysian Brewing Company out of Seattle, Washington. This pumpkin ale comes in at 6.7% ABV. It uses pumpkin, raw and roasted pumpkin seeds. It also has conditioning spiced with nutmeg, clove ginger, and allspice. I am not a fan of pumpkin ale, let alone anything pumpkin/pumpkin spiced flavored. I think it’s overrated. But I’m going to review this pumpkin beer anyway. This ale pours a deep orange color with a one-and-a-half off-white head. The head does not stick around for long. The aroma is pumpkin/pumpkin spice, big cinnamon aroma, and light gram cracker. The taste is also cinnamon. It has lots of cinnamon. There is allspice, clove, and pumpkin/pumpkin spice. The mouthfeel is medium. Then this beer finishes with a cinnamon, clove, and allspice flavor. Then comes the aftertaste of light cinnamon and allspice that does linger around. Night Owl Pumpkin Ale was not gross and wasn’t good. So I give this Night Owl from Elysian Brewing Company a D. If you like this kind of beer, you should try it. But I tend to stay away from pumpkin beers. Please stay safe, be kind to everyone, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
