Second best pumpkin ale/beer ive ever had. It has a perfect dark golden color. It smells like a house full of fresh fall cookies. One of my favorite scents. It has so many outstanding flavors. Spice, sweet, bitter and herbs. Its a great fall brew. One that you can drink on a warm or chilly fall night. Its a refreshing twist.

Medium gold, thin white head. Pumpkin pie crust nose, hint of spices. Yeasty pumpkin taste, a but of bitterness lingers towards the end. Just the right amount of pumpkin, not too overpowering. Plenty of carbonation, decent chewiness.

It does not get any better than this for a pumpkin beer. It’s over the top pumpkin and graham cracker, but in all the right ways.

This full bodied and bold taste with a spicy aroma and a deep copper color. Just slightly hoppy. Best of the pumpkin beers out there!

22oz. Bottle, pours an amber orange, with a very light white head. Smells just like a pumpkin pie which follows thru to the pallet. I thought it also tasted better as it warmed a bit. This beer is one of the better pumpkin beers I've tried and definitely succeeds at what they were attempting to do, I'm just not a fan of anything with a hint of cloves. Ones great to start the season, but a second is a bit much.

I’d classify the smell as pumpkin cologne. The taste is a bit better, but not much. disclaimer I’m not a huge pumpkin beer fan and this wasn’t an exemption.
Had from a bottle.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark golden orange with an off-white head. Smells of sweet corn, pumpkin and brown sugar. Roasted pumpkin, candy corn, spice (cinnamon, clove), sweet corn and apple show on the palate. Light bodied for an imperial, perhaps, but perfect for the style. Warming yet cool and crisp, everything autumn comes through in this beer.

A good fall seasonal priced right. I love pumpkin flavor, and this beer had a nice pumpkin background without an overpowering nutmeg and other seasonings. There’s probably better pumpkins, but this one is very good at an affordable price.

this was not your normal pumkin beer, very unique flavors that made this one really stand out among the rest.

It has a rich copper colour and a creamy smoothness that makes it easy going down, which too often isn’t the case with high alcohol beers -- and this one is 8.6 per cent. It poured with little head. While it contains spices, they’re not as bold in the aroma or flavour as in some pumpkin beers. But they creep in on the finish after a vanilla and graham cracker crust introduction. I’d read very positive things about Pumking and, while I won’t rave about it, I’m certainly not disappointed.
