Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: maxpower on 09-16-2006

Our Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.

My wife's favorite pumpkin beer, she didn't used to be a fan of pumpkin beers until this one. Not too sweet or wimpy. Good choice for sure

Not a fan of pumpkin beers, but a worthy effort.

L: Pours a reddish brown, with a thin head that doesn't leave much lacing, but the color is so warm and beautiful that you know you're in for an Autumn treat. Put on your sweater and bask in the beauty.

S: You know that smell when mom or grandma finally takes the pumpkin pie out of the oven on Thanksgiving? This beer has that in spades.

T: Even better, you know when you finally dig in to that pie and taste the symphony of flavors? Pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, graham cracker crust, all working together in harmony. That all these flavors are distinctive and yet work together is an impressive feat. Slight booziness and alcohol warmth on the end to tie it all together.

F: Medium mouthfeel, thin, chewy goodness.

O: The best pumpkin beer I've ever had. Bravo, Schlafly.

This is my favorite pumpkin beer hands down.
For one, it tastes and smells like pumpkin (and not like some sort of spiced concussion).
Second, it has a LOT of flavor too it, but does not taste very boozy.
Finally, it has a really nice orange color to it.

this kicks off my lengthy Halloween season and carries me all the way through the holidays. nothing but warm happy feelings. I'll usually stock up enough to even have a bottle or two to spare for pumpkin beer bread at Thanksgiving and an ice cream float on my birthday. lately it seems to appear a little earlier every year, but I can't find it in me to complain. share this with your friends who are wary of beer and of pumpkin brews, and with those who are wasting cash on lackluster pumpkin ales from bigger names.

A: Pours a golden honey brown with one finger head that dissipates quickly leaving little or no lacing.

S: Pumpkin pie spice, caramel, burnt sugar. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, allspice.

T: Big autumn spices. Allspice, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. Brown sugar and caramel. Graham crackers.

M: Fairly light body tending towards thin. Finish is very spicy and sweet.

O: Interesting pumpkin beer. I really enjoyed this one, but more than one of these in a session would be a bit much.
