I had this on tap at lunch yesterday, but this first review is for the bottled version. Dark copper to amber color, very clear and topped by a fizzy off white head. The head dissipated quickly. This beer is about 8% ABV, so Im not surprised the head recedes quickly. Wow, great pumpkin pie smell. Loads of spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and whats that? Pumpkin! It really comes across in the nose. Nice malty backbone too. The room fills with the aroma. The flavor dances in your mouth the nutmeg and cinnamon comes first, but the pumpkin shines through. What is a pumpkin ale without a nice ale base, and this beer does not disappoint. Wonderful dark caramel malt finish. The pumpkin and spice character lingers long after the drink blending nicely with a bit of alcohol. Big, full mouth feel. Great drinkability. This beer really is nice, and shines up there with other great pumpkin beers Ive had from Watch City and Smuttynose.

Had on-tap at the Schlafly release party at El Bait Shop.
Appearance- Light amber, almost no head.
Smell- Spices, nutmeg I'm particular. Pumpkin seeps its way through there as well.
Taste- I'm not usually a pumpkin ale guy but hats off to Schlafly on making one heck of a pumpkin ale. The nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices are blended really well with the pumpkin.
Overall- Most pumpkin ales teeter one way or the other but this one gets it right. Best balance I've had from one yet. I'd put it over ST Pumpking for sure. Just wish I was drinking this in October and not June.
Serving type: on-tap
