Poured this at a perfect temperature with a small fizzy head that promptly disappeared, no lace and a clear brown color. Aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and more bold than the flavor. This is one of the better pumpkin beers where the flavors are not so overpowering. There is some balance; malts can be tasted; still not one of my favorite kinds of beers but this isn't bad. Good body. Decent finish with a very slight hint of alcohol.

Thanks cards04. Dark orange body with sediment and a orangey/brown head, not much retention, though. All the pumpkin pie spices in the aroma. Taste is also quite sweet and full of fall spices. Abv well masked. Quite nice.

12oz bottle via 4 pack generously sent to me by my cousin Glenn. Poured a hazy deep amber color with a small creamy tan head. Aroma caramel, pumpkin, pie crust, amber malt, and cinnamon. Taste is pretty killer. Sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust, pumpkin, and vanilla cream. Taste like liquid pumpkin pie with whip cream. Definitely one of my new favorite pumpkin beers!

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.

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!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear, deep red-copper with a modest and weak tan head.
More spicy in the flavor and feel than in the nose, particular the cinnamon component. Perhaps due to a richer malt base, even with rather bold spicing this pumpkin is not over-spiced. Those not liking cinnamon much will disagree; this has enough cinnamon to, I think, add a slight burn to the feel.

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.
