Got on tap at local bar. Served in a Southern Tier goblet.
Appearance: Poured a rich dark amber color with a light peach colored head that stuck around but faded quickly. Looks almost like a lager, but much richer in tone.
Smell: When the goblet was set in front, it smelled pretty much exactly like a freshly baked pumpkin pie. I have yet to find any beer anywhere that has smelled as appetizing as this one to the point that smelling it actually made me hungry.
Taste: A sharp bite from the alcohol is dulled down from the huge flavor of the pumpkin. I also tasted some nutmeg, ginger, and a small amount of fruitiness, on top of the delicious pumpkin sucker punch.
Mouthfeel: Thick and chewy, if that could really apply to a liquid. A very hearty and full brew definitely, and I can't really think of another way to describe how it felt in my mouth.
Drinkability: This beer screams fall, and I can't imagine drinking anything else but this delicious beer fresh off tap during the fall season. Pairs great with most of the food of the season as well. Probably the best pumpkin ale I've ever had the pleasure of drinking.
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.
