UPDATED: OCT 8, 2012 Draft sample (twice) at Jungle Jims. They had sold out or I would have gotten more than a sample. This pumpkin beer is on par with Pumking (my fave). Great depth of flavor with a rich, silky mouthfeel. Well done. I liked it enough to buy a growler too.

Not bad for a pumpkin ale but that is not the same as good. This is an orange beer. Pumpkin spice is pretty mild in the nose but his you harder one you taste it. There is a good breakfast cereal malt character in the background but this is not too sweet. It is medium to full bodied with vigorous carbonation. It finishes with some lingering spice and brown sugar.

12 ounce bottle
I do not know what I was hoping for with this. It is a typical Rivertown letdown complete with the faint promise of something good. If you want a better example of what the area is capable of try almost anything else instead.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid orange base has an innocuous appearance that pairs well with the minimal head. Watery nutmeg, whipped cream, and an ethereal sweetness need to be more grounded - this feels half hearted from the start.

Flavor / Palate - Carbonated nutmeg and squash are unassuming. Light bodied with a gentle mouthfeel this lacks the punch and depth to be more than a single purchase. I should have known better - if you really must tick it grab a draft sample and move on to better seasonals.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a thin ivory head cover, spots and dots of lace. Taste is malt with pumpkin and light spices that moves without trouble through the palate to a finish with a hint of bittering. A simple, easy-drinking brew, but not as appealing as it might be.

4 oz draft sampler pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts and pumpkin. Taste is the malts, spice and pumpkin.

suprchunk (2534) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Deep orange colored pour with a tinge of redness in it. Small off-white head. Some lacing. A gourdish aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Spicy taste with a malt and pumpkin flavor mix. Not bad.

Gription79 (2441) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The pumpkin spices dominate, there is a woody character, dry, thin bodied, slight alcohol. Not bad, but it could use more balance.

Chudwick (2388) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12 oz bottle - pours copper with no head. Flavor is cinamon, caramel and pumpkin. Festivily autumnal. Sweet and spicy. Watery with a lingering spiciness. Glad I tried it but will not repeat.

Pours a deep brown with a paper thin white head. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel malt, pumpkin pie spices. Taste is very sweet, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. a bit too sweet for me. Very thin in body.
