22 ounce bottle. Thanks Dave! Pours a cloudy reddish gold with a small tan head. Aroma of spice, malt, and pumpkin. Taste is similar. A well balanced pumpkin beer.

Pours cinnamon with a thin white head without leaving much lacing. The aroma is quite flavorful full of spice. The taste has decent complexity. Itís very spicy on the nose but the finish and the palate leave just a little bit to be desired. I see this appears to be a brand new beer. Iíve had a ton of pumpkins and I would say that this most closely resembles River Horseís. Pretty good overall.

22 oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads and my 1st pumpkin beer of the season for 2012. Poured a rusty orange body under an average to larger sized slightly foamy beige head. Aroma has a chocolate background with notes of pumpkin spices, toast and some pumpkin husk. Body is full and dry with lots of mid-flavor spices and finishes full and spicey. Flavor of toast, chocolate, pumpkin pie spice, dry pumpkin rind and grain. Itís okay and the ABV is well hidden but Iíd rather have the king and yes I mean Pumking.

22oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel and bread-like malts, and some floral hops. Flavor the same, with some alcohol on the finish. Average texture. A good pumpkin beer.

ben4321 (3562) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 9/10/12

Aroma: It has a good amount of spice (cinnamon, clove, etc), pumpkin, and some sweet malts
Appearance: This one pours a dark orange color with a beige head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, not as sweet as the nose, with a medium-plus spice presence
Palate: The body is medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a lasting, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one was a solid Pumpkin beer, but not a stand-out in this style. Still though, it is something that I enjoyed drinking, so I give them a

kevhig (5) - reading, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2012 does not count
poured from 22oz bottle into standard pint glass. dark amber with moderate off white head that fades quickly. the never ending stream of swiftly rising bubbles indicate a lively carbonation. smells of nutmeg, cinnamon, and faint pumpkin. tastes sweet, slightly cloying, you can catch the pumpkin and spice, nice kind of dry mouthfeel that leaves you thirsty for more. very decent pumpkin ale that does not overdo the spice

Clear and orange in color with minimal head. Pumpkin, cinnamon, alcohol fumes. Lots of spice and obvious alcohol flavor. Good but not the best pumpkin Iíve had.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Soft pie spices and a touch of pumpkin, with a bit of yeast and a little sweet malt and toast. Medium bodied, a touch of warm booze, slightly overcooked pie crust, a bit of pie and spices. Finishes with a bit of spice, a touch of tart sweetness. Decent and easy drinking, but not all that great.
