Pumking - Southern Tier Brewing Company (2009 Pumpkin Ale)

Pours copper coloring coupled with a darkish pumpkin orange hues. A small white head. Carve some eyes in it, drop a candle in the glass, and you have a jack-o-lantern.

Buttery vanilla and deep dish pumpkin pie. They must have thrown in an entire pumpkin with stems and seeds since the smell has an earthy undertone. Nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon with a thick graham cracker quality.

Hearty and rich gingerbread, whip cream, and marshmallow tastes. Generous helpings of nutmeg and pecan. Hints of candy corn dipped in caramel. Rich malt and doughy roundness. 9%.
