If you have one pumpkin beer every year, this is probably the one. Not overly spiced or too heavy on the pumpkin, NY's Southern Tier Brewing Company's Pumking is an imperial ale with a malty sweet medium body. If you want to bring new pizazz in the Pumking, try it as a cocktail mixed with your favorite hard cider. Add a cinnamon sugar rim and a cinnamon (swizzle) stick, and you'll be a favorite at Trick-or-Treat this year.
