COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap. Comes a somewhat hazy golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste is pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Just like pumpkin pie.

2012 Edition Bomber: Pours bubbly, orange-gold with an active, off-white head. Scent is soft, pumpkin pie and crust. Taste is pumpkin pie filling with a hint of alcohol. Well carbonated and malty. Less sweet than most. Not quite deserving of the hype..but a good beer nonetheless.

I love this sweet almost candy like aroma! It reminds me of Autumn. Nice burnt orange color, clear. Flavor is almost like gingerbread. Lingering sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an amazing pumpkin beer. With amazing spice notes in both the nose and taste, this truly spotlights pumpkin. I had this from the bottle, in a glass with a cinnamon sugar rim, which only enhanced this amazing beer.

Bottle from the Brother - had this one a while ago, leans more towards the pumpkin pie spices end of this more than the pumpkin itself. I liked it!

Fairly clear amber pour with average almost white head. Nose of....pumpkin pie. I swear I can even smell the crust in there. It’s very impressive but there’s nothing in the smell that leads me to believe this is beer. That serious pumpkin pie note stays along on the palate but there are a couple little beer give aways. Impressive pumpkin and spice notes, slight warming.

Faint orange, no head. HUGE aroma of pumpkin pie and spices. Taste is a bit sweet but with massive pumpkin notes. Really sweet and heavy. One of those beers that I do not enjoy but respect.

Pours hazy red amber with low white head Aromas of pumpkins, cocoa, carrotcake, caramel its a freakin dessert! If aroma was a nice dessert taste left a bit too much. It has some sweetness, body and texture but not more than the average one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5 oz. flight glass from Malted Barley in Westerly, RI. Served with a cinnamon sugared rim. Orangish rust color with a modest head and pretty good lacing. Smell is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and alcohol. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin which really makes it stand out. Cinnamon, molasses and brown sugar also shine in this one. Nice bold flavors and spices really hide the alcohol well. A touch of hops at the end cleanses your palate for the next sip. Very good as far as pumpkin ales are concerned. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent aroma and balance. Tastes like nutmeg and gingerbread mixed with some pumpkin. This is one of the best fall choices out there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
