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.

Williamsburg AleWerks - Pumpkin Ale, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.
Look - Pours a hazy amber ruby with a barely noticeable head, some lace.
Smell - Yes!! This literally smells like a full bodied pumpkin pie! Not overly sweet or fake or half-assed, but like liquid pumpkin pie without having too much spice. Perfect.
Taste - This is amazing! Zippy ale with creamy pumpkin pie body, spice is more prominent here but still not overdone.
Mouthfeel - Medium body wit high carbonation. A hint of booziness and heat from spice but done just right. Great drinkability.
Overall - Best pumpkin beer I have had so far.
