A fine seasonal pumpkin ale the lower ABV this year may be a deterrent for some but I think it elevates the richness of this ale. A very fine pumpkin ale.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Incredible vanilla AND festive spice melange! Color is fairly light, but donít be fooled; this puppy packs a wallop of flavor! Everything you want in a pumpkin beer but only if vanilla doesnít take the front note. Itís no wonder this beer is so sought after! SINsational!

Welcomes you with a nice Pumpkin Pie aroma that compliments the flavor nicely. Great beer that I wish was available in Iowa but I guess weíll just need to make a couple more road trips.

The Pumking I tasted was the 2013 variety. Nice copper coloring and delicious pumpkin spice smell. Reminds me of fall in a big way. ST rocks and this is just another great beer from the brewery.

Had at rattle n hum. Pours a orange-tan with little head. Blast of pumpkin flavoring with tons of cinnamon and nutmeg. Wonderful overall flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 THE best pumpkin beer out there! Aroma is full of pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, just straight up pumpkin pie fresh out of the oven! The taste was no different! Completely well balanced, with almost no traces of the 8.6 ABV. I get a boner just thinking about this beer! A case of 22oz might not be enough for this year. Perfect!!!

Had the 2012. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, roasted pumpkin. Copper coloration with no head. Sweet taste with slight umami due to pumpkin. I think this could be better with a lower alcohol content, as it overwhelms the other flavors.

way out in front of any pumpkin beer I have tasted so far. The aroma with caramel overtones makes the difference. Definitely a buy again favorite

Beautiful orange color. Thin body. Tastes like pumpkin pie. Nice balance of pumpkin and spice flavors with some maltiness and just a touch of bitterness in the finish.

One of my two favorite pumpkin beerís for totally different reasons. This one has a BIG roasted pumpkin taste with subtle spices. Low carbonation and a nice lingering taste. Yummy!
