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.

Call me a traditionalist but I prefer to eat my food and drink my beer... separately. Thus Ive never had a pumpkin brew before this one, which comes highly recommended. Looks OK, smells spicy, tastes fairly crappy and spicy although the food content is pretty subtle. Have to say, I regard the whole fruity or pumpkiny beer thing as a deplorable novelty in the vein of flavored coffee. A few sips in, Im at the drink it or dump it stage, and I rarely dump one. Well, never again.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 Spicy, sweet, robust....tastes like pumpkin pie. A great dessert beer that could be the dessert.

Theres two elements to this beer... Theres the smell, which is the absolutely fantastic, and theres the taste. Smell is very sweet with pumpkin, spice and lots of carmel. The taste is more like a pale ale. Its hoppy with a good aftertaste of hops. The color is very nice and the head is completely white. If you smell this beer while you drink it its a 9/10 but on taste alone its more like 7/10.

Beautiful apple cider gold, one of the best looking beers I have ever seen! The aroma is spices, cinammon, pepper, pumpkin, the taste is of course pumpkin seeds, spicy as heck, great smooth taste on the swallow! This is a drinker, you can drink this with anything all day. You dont even notice the 8.6 ABV, great beer.

Bottle: Pours a clear copper with a medium frothy off-white head. Aroma is spicy with hints of pumpkin. Malty flavor is pumpkin pie with hints of some spiciness and sourness. Good, but I was expecting more based on the overall rating.

Bottle into a goblet. Aroma is of allspice and clove, and pumpkin. Pour is an orange honey gold with a fine head. Taste is a pumpkin pie, over the top. Very good. Finish is clean spice. A very good ale.

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!!
