Pours a cloudy, medium amber brown wiith a large, persistent white head from a growler supplied by CJ's in Towamencin PA. Aroma is pleasant aromatic, mostly vanilla, with some definite pumpkin pie notes. Taste is very smooth, malty and easy drinking. There is not much pumpkin or spice, but a subtle complex mixture of all of the above. Not as intense as the Neshaminy Creek imperial pumpkin "Punkless Dunkel", but nevertheless quite good and VERY sessionable. This delicious brew will please the palates of all but the most experienced beer drinkers who have destroyed their palates with over-the-top insanely intense brews.

A beer comes in a orange amber color.

The aroma has lots of spice, a medium pumpkin, and almost a bready or pastry aroma.

The flavor follows with a smack of spice in the front, medium light pumpkin, and a good brown ale base with some toasted malt and sweetness.

A surprisingly good brew from River Horse.
