Outstanding pumpkin beer with a perfect blend of pumpkin and spice that still tastes like a beer.

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 Iíve had.

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.

Smells rich and pumpkin pie like. Taste however is a bit boozy. no desire to taste alcohol in any beer but especially not something like this. Flavor otherwise is pretty good with nice pumpkin spice flavors. booze killed an otherwise great pumpkin beer. why make it 7.5%?

Dorwart (2519) - 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.

Pours a deep amber color with off-white head. Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some spice.

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 itís 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.

arkurzynski (2214) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Pours amber brown. Overwhelming pie spice aroma. Spice blend overpowers the pumpkin flavor a bit. Warmth on the way down. Re-rate: lots of nutmeg. Gingerbread-like flavor, mild fruity pumpkin. Pretty nice. +6

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.

Iím 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!
