Beer of the Week: Pumking from Southern Tier
The King of pumpkin ales
Seeing as how this is All Hallows' Eve eve, we thought it only appropriate to make this week's beer of the week an unabashedly spicy pumpkin-y little number. Pumking imperial ale from Southern Tier Brewing Co., based in Lakewood, New York, is a high ABV ale that pours a brilliant creamy orange and smells like someone dunked a piece of spice cake into a pint of beer. It tastes delicious, too, with lots of cinnamon and clove notes over a very mildly bitter base and a lingering, tangy finish.
