Temp dropped to sub-70 today and college football is on...perfect time for a Schafly Pumpkin Ale.
Appearance: A thick consistency, hazy, amber in color with a bubbly white head.
Smell: Smells amazing. A blend of spices and pumpkin that's distinct and aromatic.
Taste & Mouthfeel: The most flavorful and non-artifical tasting pumpkin beer out there. Schafly has reached the perfect balance of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Feels creamy and thick but not too heavy, especially for the abv.
Overall: I've been looking forward to this beer for months and was waiting for the right feel to break one open. Now that fall weather is here, this will be stocked in my fridge until I feel the need to switch to a winter warmer.

Pour/Appearance: A reddish hue with a deep copper when held to light. Minimal head that frothed a bit immediately after the pour and quickly spread to the edges only. Full lacing disappears in a few seconds.
Smell: Like face planting in a homemade pumpkin pie. Nutmeg and other spices. Some grassy hops.
Mouthfeel: Sharp carbonation and relatively light on the palette with a dry finish.
Taste: Slightly bitter from the earthy hops smelled, but the most noticeable is the pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg spices.
Overall: As ready as I was for a good seasonal ale, I was still pleasantly surprised by this selection. The brewer has done an excellent job bringing out robust pumpkin flavor without crafting something overpowering or too bitter. I'm glad I purchased this in a 6-pack and might well be back for more.

12 ounce bottle. "Bottled with love on 9/10/2013" on the bottom of the front label. Nice-fresh, highly rated seasonal beer.
Pours hazed darker amber, very minor head, leaving some fine strands of lacing.
Nose has a good dose of pumpkin pie spicing.
Full flavor and full bodied, rich pumpkin notes, more typical spicing, but everything tastes and smells fresh and pungent here. Nicely done. 8% flexing its attitude, but exhibiting no boozy bite.
If ya enjoy the style, this is one to seek out and enjoy.
Gonna try to put some away for thanksgiving. Gonna be nice with Turkey day dessert and as a night capper.

Pours a beautiful orange color. The nose is awesome. Makes you jump back and go "woah". Smells like pumpkin pie, spicy, a bit of cinnamon, very nice. Tastes like pumpkin pie. No sign of the ABV. Nice spice. Mouthfeel is medium to light with a decent amount of carbonation. This is a really good pumpkin ale. My first of the season this year. Glad they produced this. I recommend trying this if it is in your area.
