From a bottle a friend brought over. Pours a dark, clear golden copper with very little head and no lacing. Smells like sweet pumpkin pie, no joke. Taste is sweet spices and pumpkin. Very thin palate. This is a very interesting pumpkin ale. Not at all what I would expect, but not bad by any means.

garthicus (2772) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 29, 2009
On tap at Coles. Appearance: dark amber, small frothy white head. Aroma: hop crazy, pineapple, spice, fruity and ever so slightly earthy. No pumpkin evident so far. Flavour: nice pineapple hops, malt, floral, pepper, tiny pumpkin notes with long bitter hop finish with cinnamon. Delicious.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Clear copper pour, average frothy head - nice colour, really. Mild aroma (a tad cold) - C-hops, sweet, moderate alcohol, lightly spicy - only vaguely like the Pumking, has quite a bit more of the ST IPA character - sweet and somewhat pungently hoppy. Taste is mildly roasty, some alcohol (not too much), dry resin and spice bitterness, just a touch catty - and just a hint of the pumpkin in the linger (more as it warmed up). Nice solid body to it, decently carbonated, with a tingly, somewhat spicy crisp finish. Very drinkable indeed - but not much pumpkin there. ** update - had another glass about 2 weeks later - same deal: spicy, a little sweet, crips and only a little pumpkin pie zspice.

Fruity aroma, hops, citrus, touch of pumpkin if you are looking for it. 7+ Flavour is similar, kiss of pumpkin, citrusy hops, pleasant bitterness throughout. 7+ Average palate is pleasantly carbonated. Very drinkable, quite enjoyed it. On tap at Coles, Buffalo

blankboy (6422) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2009
Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY. Pours a nice deep amber with a small diminishing white head. Aroma’s nice and hoppy, citrusy with lots of hops. Flavour of spices and hops along with sweet malt, some pumpkin there but not much, mostly in the finish -- very tasty. Medium bodied. Somewhat unique, I really liked it.

blipp (6619) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Draft at Coles. Pours orange with an off white head. Light pumpkiny sweet aroma with floral hops. The flavor is more hop forward than the aroma, with both floral and citric notes and a light sweetness. Pretty good.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2009
tap @ Cole’s. Copper, white head. Nose is pretty much straight up southern tier IPA - pine, resin, dank with the addition of a small amount of pumpkin pie spice. The IPA again dominates in the flavor but some of the butterscotch/caramel comes through from the Pumpking. That caramel is slightly more pronounced in the finish which acts to temper the tingly, resiny hops. The Pumpking isn’t forward at all and it rounds out the IPA surprisingly well. Good job!
