Rivertowne Headless Wylie

Posted: January 1, 2016 in Pumpkin Ale, Reviews, Rivertowne Pourhouse

Happy New Year’s! I’m not a big fan of this holiday, but at least I don’t have to go to work. Hopefully I won’t be stuck responding to emails all day. This beer is a pumpkin beer that I picked up in Pennsylvania. I haven’t heard much about it, so let’s see how it was.


ABV: 8%

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “If Mr. Crane had this brew with him, Sleepy Hollow would have never been the same! Full bodied HIGH GRAVITY spiced ale is perfect to calm a scary situation! Cheers!”

Random: This beer comes out in August. I popped it open in October (I post things awhile in advance).

This beer poured with less than a finger of cream colored head. It left no lacing on the glass and a very slight crown. The body was cloudy and light orange in color. It had minimal carbonation visible. The nose was strong with graham cracker, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. It also had a vegetal pumpkin note. The taste was very creamy with vanilla. It then went into graham cracker and lots of pumpkin pie spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg came through will allspice and clove. After a few sips, I picked out honey as well. There was also the same vegetal pumpkin note that was in the nose. The body was thick and creamy and there was very little carbonation. It had a long and spicy finish. A can of this was $2.00, which came to $.17 per ounce. I enjoyed this beer a lot. The alcohol was well-hidden and it had a lot of pumpkin pie spice without going overboard. If you like pumpkin beer, this is worth seeking out.
