Draft. Aroma is sweet malts, cinnaman, and nutmeg. Notes of allspice, ginger, pumpkin and cain sugar stand out. Palate is thick, but crisp. Flavor brings out a great pumpkin pie taste. One of the better pumpkin beers I have had.

Orange colored pour with a small off-white head. Watery aromas of faint spices. Flavor is similar. Very weak all around.

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.

This beer starts off very well, with a nice looking pour and really nice nose with lots of pumpkin pie spices and a mild bready note that almost make you think it’s pie crust. Sadly, the flavor doesn’t stand up as well as the nose...if it did, this could be a top notch pumpkin brew.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark copper with a very tiny fizzy head. It almost seems like the cap wasn’t seated properly or maybe it is just under carbonated. Either way not very impressive. The aroma is quite nice and tends to be somewhat heavy on the molasses and cinnamon. There is almost a little roast with it. Reallly good spice to this one and it doesn’t overwhelm in the smell. Good balance. The flavor is quite nice as well. Brown sugar and caramel up front with a touch of cinnamon. There is a really nice malt character but sweetness is kept in check. No hops really at all but there is a mild bitterness in the finish. Nice, full mouthfeel ending with a touch of sweetness. Overall, a really nice pumpkin ale. The spices are not too overwhelming and you can really taste the malt. Well done.

Thanks to my beer buddy, Big D, I love trying these beers this time of the year. Although, I am not a big fan of the pumpkin beers, this one had good flavors, up there with Dogfish Head Pumpkin. Hints of pumpkin flavors in the beer, the pumpkin flavor doesn’t overtake the flavor (I like that). Love the label on this one---Thank again D!!

Bottle: pours a nice brown color with a tan head. Aroma of wonderful cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin hits you when you taste it. Well done, great example of a fall seasonal. I love the stuff this brewery is doing.

Alright, I purchased this on tap in "Arnolds" in Cincinnati, Ohio - This is just a fine, orangy-hued pumpkin brew with a balanced body and darn tastey!

Pours darkish-amber with no head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie spice and malt. Taste is cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice with lightly roasted malt. Where’s the actual pumpkin? Not bad, per se, but pretty damn boring.

Tasted from bottle. Color is cloudy brown with tan head. Aroma is definite cinnamon, moderate amount of pumpkin spice with some caramel malty notes. Taste is sweet up front with pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar. The cinnamon taste is very strong and continues throughout through the finish. Definitely a spicier pumpkin beer. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
