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.

The aroma is invigorating on this, the best pumpkin ale I’ve tasted! The delicious pumpkin flavor is strong yet tasteful. Vibrant color and brief foamy head upon pouring. Nice, light, and delightful!

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 22oz bottle poured into my Movie Tavern tanker. Color is an amber orange with minimal head and lacing. It smells delicious; caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and fresh pumpkin. The taste is primarily nutmeg, but the fresh pumpkin comes bursting through with slight cinnamon notes. Mouthfeel is rich, but smooth with medium carbonation. Very quaffable for an imperial ale, so beware of the 8.6% ABV

Nice medium spice aroma. Taste is very layered with spices, pumpkin flavor and light sweetness and earthiness to it.
