Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale Review


The fall season means strong flavorful beers, and pumpkin beer. All types of fruit flavored beers are big during the summer, but once the fall hits, pumpkin is king. Elysian Brewing Company is based in Seattle, WA and have won many awards for their beers. They have taken on many beer styles from their “Dragontooth stout” to the “Haleakala” brewed from a wild yeast and tart flowers named after Maui’s famous active volcano. We sampled the Night Owl Pumpkin Ale and were impressed with the smooth taste.

  • Appearance – Pours a hazy amber with a thin head a little retention
  • Aroma – Pumpkin pie with fresh herbs and spices, mainly clove and ginger
  • Taste – Pumpkin and molasses flavors with a medium body and smooth finish
  • Overall – 7.5/10 Subtle and smooth flavors with a nice spice kick
