Pours a clear orangey copper with half inch head.

Smell is pumking sweet with spices of nutmeg and clove.

Taste is pumpkin pie spice probably more than pumpkin flesh. Definite clove, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon stick.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Had this been thick it may have lost its luster. Carbonation lower which helps the flavor profile be itself. Character more pronounced at warmer temps which I enjoyed also.

I like this better than last years and looking forward to having more. What a fantastic pedway into the fall and pumkin beers. Excellent job!

1 pt 6 oz bomber from Frougles. Born on 8/13/13

A - Clear, translucent orange. Peach. Poured with little to no head.

S - Pumpkins, buttered popcorn, toffee.

T - Pumpkin pie through and through, then the butter/salt finish. I sensed some orange and bread notes later on.

M - Carbonation spikes mid swig, then fades mysteriously fast. Mouthfeel is on the thin side.

O - Interesting, to say the least. The pumpkin comes through really well, though the buttered popcorn like mix seems odd.

What a difference 1 year makes

Last year at this time the King was just starting to pop up and it was easy to fall in love with it, this years shipment was mass produced and tasted nothing like the '12 edition, they rushed the batch brewed on 7/3/13 which all bottles at every store seem to have time stamped on them

I actually did the same as another reviewer and poured a quarter bottle down the drain because I couldnt finish, i mean it's not horrible but compared to last years it is

2012 batch is a easy 5/5 brew
