Bottle. Orange-brown in color. Light amber head. Aroma, spicy, pumpkin pie. Taste like a nice pumpkin pie, a tad funky after taste.

Bottle from Seth. Nose is nutmeg and pumpkin and taste is the same. Very similar to pumpkin pie with a little malt thrown in at the end. Great for the style but not something I'd drink more than one of since its so flavorful. ---Rated via my mouth

ChrisFields (70) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2013
USA- bottle Appearance- Dark amber with no head. Aroma- Pumpkin pie= cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pumpkin. Taste- Sweet Pumpkin pie. Palate- Thin, smooth, so sweet I find it cloying. Overall- Definitely a pumpkin dessert ale but much too sweet for my tastes. Probably good in small doses but 12oz was too much for me. YMMV

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Aroma: Fairly fresh and pleasant pumpkin scent with some cinnamon. Appearance: Dark copper pour with a quickly disappearing head; almost entirely still. Flavor: Mostly pumpkin up front with a bit more cinnamon towards the finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A perfectly acceptable and imminently drinkable pumpkin beer, but nothing to distinguish it from others in the style.

12oz sampled with a few friends. Pours amber with a small ring of off white lace. Aromas strong of pie spices. Think cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel. The flavor follows the aromas.... Very spicy overall but finishes somewhat sweet with caramel and a touch of pumpkin flavor. Nice pumpkin beer, but not my thing.

Why do I do this to myself!?! Trying Cincy beers I know will be mediocre. Well it looks nice, but man this thing just falls flat in the flavor department. I’m only detecting a scintilla of what the description promises. It’s just a plan lager with a dash of October. Sorry Rivertown....maybe I’ll pick up one of your revered sours one day.

tmongoose (1208) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle shared pours medium orange color, with off white head. Nice aroma of pumpkin and some mild spices which is a turn around from the norm. The flavor is very good solid pumpkin flavor with some mild cinnamon flavor. As far as pumpkin beers this one is pretty good.

It says "Late October - November Release". It’s mid-August. Just FYI. Anyway, not as cloying or sweet as some pumpkin beers, and has a bit of hop bite. Most of the usual players - cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, etc - are present.
