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.

There’s two elements to this beer... There’s the smell, which is the absolutely fantastic, and there’s the taste. Smell is very sweet with pumpkin, spice and lots of carmel. The taste is more like a pale ale. It’s 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 it’s a 9/10 but on taste alone it’s more like 7/10.

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.

Bomber from drinks of the world in Basel. Pours quite Amber and clear. But the aroma is very strong cinnamon, vanilla nutmeg and sweet malt. Palate is balance with just enough carbonation. I am mixed on the taste. First sip was awful. But it grows on you. By the end I thoroughly enjoyed it. High abv is well hidden.

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 doesn’t 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 I’ve tried. Pumpkin cotton candy in a bottle. I recommend.

Very good pumpkin beer. Lots of flavor but not obnoxious. Pretty pricey. I would buy a bottle or 2 at the bar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 drank one year later. Bomber into wine glass. Appropriately,a squash orange pour, very minimal head. Actually smells like pumpkin, or pumpkin bread. Very light on the spice, barest hint of ginger. In the mouth, similar. Liquidated pumpkin bread. Very mild hops in the mouth. Generally not a fan of pumpkin bears since they tend to be spice and not gourd, but this is the opposite, and therefore rather pleasant.
