COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumking is an ode to Pca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Pca 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 its alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let its 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.

Cloudy in appearance and golden in color. Very good lacing with a white bubbly head. Smells like grandmas(freshly baked) whole made pie crust. Definite pumpkin spice aroma. Reminds me of thanksgiving. Taste like pumpkin pie with a trace of hops. Taste like grandmas recipe. Medium-bodied beer with a creamy texture. The finish is like the cool whip melting in your mouth. This is the best pumpkin beer i have had so far. I loved it.

This is basically perfect for what it is! Taste like a piece of pumpkin pie and has the ABV to make it worth sipping! All I can say is if you like fall seasonals or pumpkin brews, this is a must!!

Bottle purchased at Central Market in Mill Creek, WA. Pours a lovely amber color with an off-white head that doesnt last long. Aroma: Pumpkin pie. Flavor: Same as the aroma, with slightly spicy finish.

Nice pumpkin ale from Southern Tier. Slightly sweet, not to spicey and a medium pumpkin flavor compared to other pumpkin beers Ive tried. Pumpkin cotton candy in a bottle. I recommend.

I am not a huge pumpkin beer fan but I can appreciate what this beer is. Right in flavor but not too overpowering. Had it on draft so that made it easier to Deno for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 Bottle. La Chouffe glass. Pours a clear autumnal orange copper. Head is thick but dissipates quickly. Incredible pumpkin pie crust aroma with plenty of pumpkin, almost asian white gourd drink flavor along with spices of clove, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger. Unlike many pumpkin ales the beer does not over-rely on cinnamon for flavor. Caramel malt with little hops. But the typical beer ingredients are superseeded by the pumkin pie crust/pumkin bread flavor. Spices compliment, but then cut off the remaining flavors leaving a spicy finish that quells the tongue; making multiple glasses undesired. Medium to full bodied. Not perfect, but perhaps the best pumpkin ale.

Very tasty brew that as soon as I opened it up consumed my nose with its rather spicy aroma. Flavor is much the same with cinnamon coming through and very creamy on the palate. I enjoyed it but couldn’t justify the cost of a case.

draft. extremely strong aroma... hazelnut, artificial vanilla, nutmeg, some impressions of pumpkin. similar qualities in the taste but add an overbearing sweetness. the alcohol is hidden very well, but this was entirely too sweet and purfumey for me. the aroma became almost nauseating. they simulated the pumpkin aroma/flavor well with the spices, but went way overboard. an interesting experiment, but hardly drinkable.

This is the reason to drink beer in the fall. Huge pumpkin taste and scent. Fairly heavy beer, but goes down smooth. Truly delicious pumpkin ale - tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass, outstanding brew.
