pumking12"If you were preparing for winter in Southern Tier's hometown of Lakewood, N.Y., you'd want fall to linger as long as possible, too. Pumking has been the pumpkin ale early bird for years, but it doesn't disappoint. It packs a little heat at 8.6% ABV, but there isn't a whole lot of alcohol to its flavor. It's a dark orange beer that smells like a pumpkin scone, tastes like pumpkin pie filling at the beginning and finishes like a cinnamon-and-sugar milkshake. There's a rare oak-barrel version that may require a trip to Southern Tier's brewpub, but the original recipe is enough to keep even the most discriminating beer lover nice and toasty." http://www.thestreet.com/story/13257784/3/10-pumpkin-beers-making-fall-flavor-a-summer-staple.html

"The wildly popular Southern Tier Pumking takes aim at 12oz bottles when it returns in the fall (July). One of America’s most popular pumpkin beers might be a bit more manageable when you are drinking alone." http://beerstreetjournal.com/southern-tier-pumking-12oz-bottles/

"The bottle states that the beer is brewed with "a pagan spirit", and I don't know what the hell that means, but those pagan spirits can make a helluva pumpkin beer. There is a veritable pumpkin spice fiesta on the nose, and those same flavors are present when you take your first sip. Expect a touch of sweet, as well. This is easily in the top tier of pumpkin beers, to be celebrated by pagans and non-pagans alike." https://www.thrillist.com/drink/nation/the-best-pumpkin-beers-dogfish-head-avery-brewing-elysian

"Pumking is an ode to Púca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Púca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from which they return forever changed! Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow it’s alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let its deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape." http://www.beerinfo.com/index.php/pages/bestpumpkinbeers.html
