Pumking is an ode to Púca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Púca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from which they return forever changed. Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow it’s alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let it’s deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape the Pumking.

Bottle from the Brother - had this one a while ago, leans more towards the pumpkin pie spices end of this more than the pumpkin itself. I liked it!

Fairly clear amber pour with average almost white head. Nose of....pumpkin pie. I swear I can even smell the crust in there. It’s very impressive but there’s nothing in the smell that leads me to believe this is beer. That serious pumpkin pie note stays along on the palate but there are a couple little beer give aways. Impressive pumpkin and spice notes, slight warming.

Faint orange, no head. HUGE aroma of pumpkin pie and spices. Taste is a bit sweet but with massive pumpkin notes. Really sweet and heavy. One of those beers that I do not enjoy but respect.

Pours hazy red amber with low white head Aromas of pumpkins, cocoa, carrotcake, caramel its a freakin dessert! If aroma was a nice dessert taste left a bit too much. It has some sweetness, body and texture but not more than the average one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5 oz. flight glass from Malted Barley in Westerly, RI. Served with a cinnamon sugared rim. Orangish rust color with a modest head and pretty good lacing. Smell is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and alcohol. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin which really makes it stand out. Cinnamon, molasses and brown sugar also shine in this one. Nice bold flavors and spices really hide the alcohol well. A touch of hops at the end cleanses your palate for the next sip. Very good as far as pumpkin ales are concerned. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent aroma and balance. Tastes like nutmeg and gingerbread mixed with some pumpkin. This is one of the best fall choices out there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Head falls off quickly into nothing. Pale orange, crystal clear. Rich, real vanilla cream aroma, no artificial alcohol burn. Real potent can smell from across. Banana bread. Pie crust. Very clean, blended smells. Warming sensation on the middle to back, makes me smile. A little burn from spice, not from booze, perhaps all-spice. No real pumpkin flavor, more last bit of pumpkin pie (crust and cream).

A light amber beer, with a poor white head. A crystal clear beer. In the nose there are a lot of herbs and sweetness. I smell pumpkin, milk chocolat, bitter liqueur and alcohol. It is a medium bodied beer, with a low and fine carbonation. In the taste there a lot of sweet of the milk chocolat, and somewhat spicy from the pumpkin. There is also a light bitterness and the taste of alcohol. In the aftertaste there is more liqueur bitter, and less milk chocolat. Overal is a decent beer, with pumpkin and chocolat dominating the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
