Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Wow! This beer is like pumpkin pie in a bottle. So fresh and flavorful, it definitely replaces anything pumpkin that I'd want to eat. The appearance (reddish-caramel) and mouthfeel are both average, but the smell and taste are out of this world! There's a definite cinnamon/vanilla/caramel/nutmeg aroma that comes through as it warms. The taste is pumpkin-y, vanilla, bread-y, with a well-balanced tart and sweetness. I could have this beer again and again, and think it's easily the best pumpkin beer I've tried.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a strong amber color that is translucent. Almost reddish with a nice white head that recedes quickly.

Aroma of pumpkin spice with some cinnamon. Slight grassy hops in the back. Some nice sweetness comes along with some slight nutmeg spice.

Taste exactly like some pumpkin pie. Delicious pumpkin pie spice and slight cinnamon sweetness. Flavor is straight forward. Pumpkin. Delicious.

Pretty good offering by Schlafly. In fact one of the first pumpkin beers that wasn't a drain poor for me.

A- Copper color, not much head or lacing here. Literally the ONLY fault with this beer, IMO.

S- Pumpkin pie. It's as simple as that. Nice, beautiful, freshly made pumpkin pie, and its traditional spices.

T- Pumpkin pie spices dominate this at first. There is a clean hop bitterness in there as well. Finishes with a taste of pure pumpkin. Though it may be my imagination, it's almost sweet enough for me to pick up traces of whipped cream. When it gets toward the bottom of the glass, the alcohol begins to come through with a nice, warming quality.

M- I always find this one to be luxurious. Nice, smooth, and creamy.

O- This is one of my favorite beers ever. Hands down. It is nicely balanced, and it delivers exactly what it advertises. I anxiously await this one every year, and this year the brew is outstanding.
