October Spirits: Southern Tier’s “Pumking” Pumpkin Ale

Article by Fister Roboto of lefthandhorror.com

There’s always a beer I’m chasing. This year I found some of this Pumking on tap in Villa Hills, KY. I literally bought every bottle on hand. I went through those very quickly, so I’m happy to see these overflowing at my local Whole Foods. I wasn’t such a big fan of pumpkin ales until this rolled out. I’m sold now. There are some tasty pumpkin beers to try and Pumking is at the top of the list.

Brewed by:
Southern Tier Brewing Company

Style | ABV
Pumpkin Ale |  8.60% ABV

19 Degrees Plato
8.8 Degrees L
2-row Pale Malt
Caramel Malt
Pureed Pumpkin

Kettle Hops: Magnum
Aroma Hops: Sterling

Appearance: a nice orange glow comes from the glass. A little head has formed at the top of the glass and has reduced to a thin layer. There are also signs of carbonation coming through the middle of the glass.

Smell: Caramel malts and spiced pumpkin, vanilla, buttery bread.

Taste: Amazing. Pumpkin pie. The bread and biscuit nose follow through in the flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy.

Overall:  Great Brew. Best Pumpkin of the Year. Get them now before they’re gone.

Poured from a 20oz bottle into a snifter.
