For tonight's countdown to Halloween, a real ale suggestion. I had wanted to try it for a long time, I finally had the chance last week: I drank Pumpking from Wychwood Brewery. I cannot believe it took me that long! And a quick verdict: I loved it! It has the ideal colour, this burning amber brown, not unlike the Hobgoblin which is their flag beer. I was surprised at how dark it was, thinking it might be a blonde. But I guess they went for the colour of a lit Jack O'Lantern. Or I am reading too much into it. But try it and please feel free to give me your impressions in the comments. For once the beer has as much character as its label. So all hail to the (Pump)king!
