This is one epic pumpkin beer. It actually tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie. Crust and all. Buttery, spicy, and earthy pumpkin wrapped up in a bottle. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had.

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.

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!

Bottle shared by Buddy. Aroma of juicy pumpkin, molasses, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pours reddish with a nice orange cream head. Taste is pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Nice clean and juicy mouthfeel throughout really set this apart. Wasn’t too sweet and it wasn’t bitter. Very easy drinking. Nice job.

Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice hits you during the pour. Taste is nutmeg and pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon top the pumpkin flavor. An ok beer. Don’t even notice the 7.5 % Alc. Dry spicy aftertaste.
