Pours a lightly hazed, deep amber body. On pour, a nice, white inch thick head is present but fades to a small ring pretty quick. Light carbonation, no lacing, and light legs.
In a word; Fantastic! This is pumpkin pie in a glass! Plenty of pumpkin character with roasted pumpkin seeds. Traditional pie spices are in attendance (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and even a hint of clove) with a sweet pie crust coated in cinnamon and sugar. Whipped cream tops this one off. Yum!
What more do want from a pumpkin beer than this: It taste like pumpkin pie in a glass? Follows the nose beautifully. A bit more spicing than the benchmark (Pumpking) and there is a definite bite from alcohol but it almost enhances the flavor instead of detracting from it. Nicely spiced aftertaste.
Smooth and enjoyable. Fairly heavy body with low levels of carbonation. Clean, sweet finish.
I love a good pumpkin ale, I'd go as far as saying it pretty much my favorite style. While this doesn't dethrone the king of pumpkin beers, Pumpking, it riding on its coat-tails, it's patiently waiting its for its turn to sit in the iron throne. Additionally, if I want to get my hands on Southern Tier's nectar of the gods, I have to drive 4 hours, giving Whole Hog a hell of an advantage. Do yourself a favor and snag this if you see it!
