A: Minimal lacing and carbonation. That isn't necessarily bad however. Very inviting orangish-copper color.
S: Smells like pumpkin pie with cinnamon.
T: The first few sips are a lightly spiced beer that develops into a complex pumpkin flavor as the pint empties. A true joy to taste this one.
M: Low carbonation but it really adds to the flavor.
D: I tried this straight out of the fermenter when I stopped by the brewery. I immediately bought a case off of them as soon as it was bottled.

Schlafly's pumkin ale IS NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD AS THIS ONE. It's that damn good. There is NONE of the raw pumpkin taste that's found in other pumpkin ales. I have personally never had that from any other pumpkin ale.
Personally, this is one of the best ales I'VE EVER HAD regardless of style, and I consumed so much of it that people started calling me "The Pumpkin Head."
A: Beautiful orange and amber with a great amount of carbonation and a head that dissipates quickly. Very clear as well - see-through, in fact.
S: Wow, breathtaking. Smells of cinnamon, brown sugar, caramel, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spices, molasses etc. In fact, it smells exactly like a pumpkin pie. Since I love pumpkin pie, I can't get enough of this beer's smell.
T: PERFECT, but must be consumed either warm or at cellar temperature for maximum flavor. The taste follows the nose, and it's exactly like a pumpkin pie. Tons of cinnamon goodness mixed with pumpkin and brown sugar. I've never tasted a beer that this closely approximated a pumpkin pie.
M: Again, beautiful. A rich thickness with lots of brown sugar and molasses.
O: You must try this beer. It's absolutely stunning if you have it at the right temperature.

I was out with a couple of friends in the park and we purchased a six-pack of this (with solo cups) from an upscale corner store that recently opened by Lincoln Park. We all really liked this, and it went perfectly with an early fall day and bocce ball. As a beer, it was very nice, medium body, not too much head but very pleasant. We purchased it for the pumpkin flavor though, and on that count it was the best I've had. The smell and flavor of pumpkin and spices was just right, definitely there, but not completely overwhelming the beer. It also did not have the artificial taste. If you are a fan of this flavor, and not everyone is, then grab a six pack of this and you won't be dissapointed.
