(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of kmweaver. Slightly hazy, pale amber golden with a small, off-white head. Very oddly spiced nose. Medium body with sweet caramel and then a broad palette of spices with cardamom and cinnamon sticking out. Subdued bitterness. This is....odd....in a way that’s really hard to get friendly with. 301107 Beerhunter111 (23262) - Beerland, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2017
Bottle shared with Erzengel! A almost clear dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, dry spices, pumpkin. Taste of sweet cinnamon, pumpkin, red malt, herbs, low bitterness. Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2010 This was amazing. The ’Commercial Description’ truly captures the essence of the Pumking. I had some on tap at the East Village Tavern. Poured a nice, light gold. Aroma of spices - cinnamon and nutmeg with mild roasted malt notes. The flavor was sweet, incredibly sweet and tasted like rich pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream. The alcohol gives the brew a nice warming effect. Very smooth and drinkable. Delicious. Rasmus40 (22129) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2011
Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, pumpkin, christmas cookies and heavy spicy - cardamom. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet and spicy finish. It smells just like christmas cookies, which is great for aroma but not for taste. 081211 Koelschtrinker (22067) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 6, 2015
Vollmundig gewürziger Antrunk, trocken nach Kürbis, mild herb. Hell schokoladig, Noten von Spekulatius, Zimt, steigende Süße. Zum Ende schwerer, gut! 9/10/8/11/9/9

2007-11-30, bottle at Papsø’s Blind Tasting, 7-4-6-3-13=33Theydon_Bois (21425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Hazy golden color. Very strong aroma of cookies, spiced with a lot of sweet cinnamon. Medium malty body and sweetness, again with the very strong (sweet cinnamon) cookie character. Odd but pleasant.

Golden color. Crispy cookie aroma, surprising (with delicate cinnamon). Good body, malty, with a cookie flavor (speculoos, Joris would say). As a beer it’s a bit off the track, but it’s quite good. Smooth.
On tap at the Cask, Pimlico Feb ’12.
Hazy dark orange in colour almost verging on a light ’rusty’ brown akin to the canal by the railway line in Kidsgrove, Staffs (that might mean something to someone !?!?!).
Smells sweet, spiced, cloves, a little pumpkin but not too so in my opinion, maybe some ginger in there?
Lots of flavours combine in this complex beer. Butterscotch, Pumpkin and sweet popcorn were the 3 headline flavours, these were backed up by nutmeg, clove, ginger, syrup and other spices.
Mouthfeel was bang on, medium leaning to full in body, limited carbonation and a warming feeling as you digested!

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 22 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin, honey sweetness, light nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour is full on pumpkin (reminiscent of squash a bit), sweet honey - more sweet than spicy. The honey mixes beautifully with the spices. No trace of ABV detectable. Must be the best pumpkin beer I’ve had. Delicious. saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are extreme. Never had this significant taste of pumpkin in a beer before. It makes all other pumpkin alles I have tasted fade into oblivion. It is nothing like any of the other 3800+ beers I have tasted so far. It is closest to what we in Denmark call a "spice cake" or a "beer cake". Really intense pumpkin. Behind all this there is also some caramel, malt, molasses and notes of hops. harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08. Again thanks to Harry for this one. The brewer needs a really good seasoning. Don’t know what that means, but apparently it was hilariously funny on the night. Amber colour with thin beige head. Too spicy for me. Cinnamon and banana bread. Cereal with dried banana in it. Some ginger. There is something there I can’t quite place. It’s weird, but ok.
