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.

2008, 2009 and 2010 bottles courtesy of Wavers1. What can I possibly say about Pumking?? It’s smooth, spicy, sweet, deep, complex, refreshing all rolled into one. It DEF gets better with age, but it nothing to put aside when its fresh! Guard your Pumking stash!

This blew my mind! Very strong sweet pumpkin taste in the beginning with a nice alcohol finish. Definitely my go-to beer this fall.

2011 Bottle: Seriously. A fresh pumpkin nose, so real, so full. And the BOOM, the most amazing flavour I have ever encountered in a beer. Seriously, exactly what it says on the bottle. The crust and maillard effect flavours are unbelievable. Indescribably accurate.

Pumking is an amazing beer, great taste, great look and the high alcohol content cant even be tasted! If youre into pumkin beers this is easily the "king" of them all and worthy of that title. Makes shipyards pumkin beer taste like water.

The best pumpkin beer I have had. Buddies and I did a pumpkin beer tasting and this one was almost perfect. Tastes like sweetened pumpkin pie. Still has a little kick/hop to it. The best

The pumking is the perfect beer for this fall! or for that matter anytime (although its a seasonal) it had a very small head and the color of the beer was perfect! the smell was great...it pays off when u smell most of ur beers but when u smell the pumking ur in for a real treat....this was definatly a beer that also has a punch 2 it as well...Enjoy.
