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.

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.

Pint on tap. Nose is cinnamon and a hint of caramel and pumpkin. Tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg and too much other pied spices with some tea leaf caramel and maybe some pumpkin. Near-medium body has average carbonation and is to the sweet side.

Bottle. Pours a weirdish brown. Nice pumpkin aroma, flavor isnt good at all. I hate pumpkin beers. Super thin mouthfeel.

phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Dilly Cafe. Pours a clear orange-amber with a finger of off-white head that lasts for a surprisingly long time. Aroma of pumpkin, apples, brown sugar, nutmeg, and allspice. Flavor is pretty much the same. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts smooth and even fruity and finishes more spicy. A little uneven but not a bad pumpkin ale.

Pours a somewhat hazy reddish orange with no head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, spices, brown sugar. Flavor is pumpkin, spice, herbal, a little bitter. Medium body. What I really enjoyed about this beer was that it tasted like pumpkin, not like pumpkin pie spice; this is a problem I have with some other pumpkin ales but not here. This is a nice pumpkin ale for the fall.
