A: A cloudy dark-brown beer. I gave it a vigorous pour but only got a very slight head out of it, though it seems persistent.
S: Lots of cinnamon, and more nutmeg than most breweries add to their PAs. Very nice to smell.
T: Loads of cinnamon upon first drink. Once it settles down, there's a good amount of sweet caramel malt, and, again, great nutmeg.
M: Creamy texture with a good body.

For those that like their PumpAles spicy, this is a good choice. It also has great malt interest.

Pours a brownish orange with a creamy head. Smells like fresh pumpkin pie. Taste is unbelievably pumpkin for a beer. Easily the best pumpkin beer I’ve tasted. I didn’t try this, but you could probably add whip cream or vanilla ice cream for a great beer float.

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!
