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.

On tap @ the Beer Engine. I was SO excited to find it on tap since I thought I totally missed the season and any chance of getting some pumking this year. Pours a very pumpkin orange only a slight bit of off-white head. Beautiful natural pumpkin taste, nutmeg spices and everything nice. Quite a treat, certainly the best pumpkin beer Ive had thus far.

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 orange with a small off white head. Aroma is heavy pumpkin, pie crust, caramel, and loads of spice, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Taste is the right amount of sweet, with all the flavors I want in a pumpkin beer. Finish is spicy, sweet, with some light bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Great pumpkin beer.

Bomber->lager glass: Pours an average, frothy, white head that exhibits excellent lacing atop an amber body. There is a earthy yeast aroma, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon aroma emanating from the glass. The body is medium, texture is oily and creamy and no carbonation. The flavor’s duration is average-to-long, and lightly sweet. Really makes me think of pumpkin pie--an excellent beer.

Caramel pour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin pie, perhaps with the whipped cream included. Theres some nice ginger spice in there too. The flavor is sweet, which youd expect from Southern Tier, but theres plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg spice in there too. Its not too overly sweet though, which is a bonus. Finish is with some pumpkin spice. A little thin is the biggest shortcoming. Otherwise, a good beer.

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

Fresh bomber split with the buds at Crooked Stave. Pours a golden orange color with a light yellow head. Good lacing. Pumpkin pie nose. Somewhat spicy, with cinnamon & nutmeg flavors, but with the pumpkin coming through on the finish. Has a nice depth. Warms on the finish. A tasty treat and must try...
