I drink way, way too much of this delicious pumpkin beer this time of year so when the opportunity came for a draft I had three. Enjoyed at the 2012 ABR, from notes.
Pour was orange, clear with a finger of white foam, some lacing. Looks exactly like a pumpkin beer should look.
Smell was biscuits and caramel, subtle pumpkin pie spices..nutmeg cinnamon allspice.
Taste was all about a lightly sweet pumpkin pie..mashed pumpkin, soft flaky, buttery crust, lightly applied spices..nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ginger. Pumpkin-bready malt. Lightly warming alcohol works well here. Big flavors, lightly sweet, but not at all sugary. It's hard to characterize the effect precisely, though it's fantastic. My favorite pumpkin and fall ale, hands down.
Serving type: on-tap

In my opinion, Pumking is hands down, the best beer in the world. If it has ever been taken into outer space, it's probably the best beer there too. And it's not just it's "pie-in-a-glass" taste.
As your glass comes toward you, you first experience the beautiful color, then the wonderful aroma and then the perfect taste. Mouth feel is good too. If you like to just enjoy 1 or 2 beers, Pumking has substantial ABV that lessens the need for multiples.
It must be tough to brew a good pumpkin ale because I have tasted so many bad ones. There are none better than Southern Tier Pumking.
