[Bottle] Ruddy orange pour with a large amount of dense white head on top. Strong aroma of nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin pie spices. Taste is similar, with rich dark breads, pumpkin, dark brown sugar and allspice. Thicker palate than expected. Good balance. Hands down the best thing I have had from Point. Tasting notes from 12/2011.

Dorwart (2359) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Thin off-white head of fine bubbles. Spices and pumpkin with some sweet malts and a bit of butterscotch. Color is a dark copper brown. Flavor is mild spice and pumpkin. Some gingerbread and toasted grains. Slightly gritty mouthfeel. Noticable but light alcohol presence. Finishes spicy and dry. A pretty decent pumpkin brew.

Just cracked this open and the aroma is all ginger snaps. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big thanks to ughsmash. Lots of holiday spicing, warming, chocolate, toffee. There is any interesting creamy texture to the mouthful, pumpkin maybe? Very nice.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Draught at Andys Corner bar. Very comparable to Southern Tier Pumking but better. Dark copper orange in color, with a little off white head. Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Pumpkin pie spice aroma, tastes so close to pumpkin pie. Light malty hoppy notes. Light pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon flavor with light bitterness notes. Full bodied. Finish is malty and dry and enjoyable. Very drinkable.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2009
I’m very impressed with the Whole Hog lineup, I hope they keep it going with other beer. Poured a semi cloudy amber colour with a huge frothy top. Instant nutmeg, pumpkin and cinnamon notes right away. Taste was nice and spicey, creamy and delicioso! No Pumking for sure, but it was damn good anyway!

Copper with a white head. Nice spicing, light pumpkin, light toasted malts. Medium body. Real nice beer with good levels of toasted malts, spice, and pumpkin.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Draft at Jerry’s. Amber with light beige head / Sweet nose of pumpkin, caramel, and spice / Medium body, soft carbonation, somewhat chewy, sweet, and sticky, with good balance and finish / Well balanced flavors of pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove / Pretty much as advertised, and a nice job by Point.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours clear, dark copper with a 1 finger, creamy eggshell head. Aroma is mostly pumpkin pie spice, heavy on cinnamon and low on allspice, the way I like it, some caramel and lactose-like sweetness. Flavor is much the same, but with an odd note-seems like fusel alcohols, but I think it’s actually from the spices, light planty and spicy hops along with lasting pie spice to the finish. Palate is medium bodied, kind of slick up till the fairly dry finish and has a medium, sharp carbonation.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a slight hazed brown with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and light spice and pumpkin. The flavor found pumpkin and caramel. Light to medium body, sweet throughout, and a caramel aftertaste.
