Crystal clear orange/copper colored beer with a slowly diminishing creamy white head.
Wow! Something I've never come across in the aroma. I would describe it as a striking buttery sweetness. There's also a slight spiciness that may be coming from the hops, or actual spices. There's a lot going on the aroma department. And it's hard to explain. Very unusual, but I like it.
The spice really comes through in the flavor. There's no doubt there are a significant amount of spices in this beer. The sweet malty character (along with the pumpkin) comes through as you swallow. But the spices remain in your mouth in between sips.
A smooth, creamy mouthfeel. A slightly tickling carbonation. Heavy bodied with a everlasting finish that is simultaneously sweet and bitter.
It's very clear that I need to buy another bottle or two before it goes out of season. This is a really special beer that you must try if given the opportunity.

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.
