look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
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.

Aroma:
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!

Taste:
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.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and enjoyable. Fairly heavy body with low levels of carbonation. Clean, sweet finish.

Overall:
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!
