look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

edit: crazybrody06 gave Pumking a 3.3. He also rated a 12oz bottle of Newcastle a 4.2, and Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy a 4. I think that should be taken into consideration before taking his review seriously.



This was the best pumpkin ale I've had yet. I really enjoy Post Road and Smuttynose pumpkin, Dogfish Punkin and even Cottonwood Pumpkin was great on tap. But this blows them away. It has a flavor that the others cannot come close to. You can even taste the pie crust in it, it is really like pumpkin pie. The smell is just like a pumpkin pie candle, and I had to stop a few times just to enjoy the smell. The taste is outstanding. The alcohol is extremely well masked and the smell and taste really fool you. The spices really play a large part in the flavor, and I'm amazed at how well they went with this beer. Thanks to DrinkinBuddy and slagle9480 for this awesome pumpkin ale, and hats off to Southern Tier for really impressing me with this one. Highly recommended for any fan of pumpkin ales, this is my new favorite among the rest.
