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.

4.1/5  rDev -2.8%

A: Dark amber-brown color; pours with a nice head that dissolves into bubbles around the side of the glass
S: Pumpkin pie (pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, graham cracker pie crust), vanilla, a little alcohol
M: Medium- full body, a little bit of coating but a good effervescence throughout
T: On the pumpkin beer spectrum that ranges from pumpkin pie to gourd in flavor, I would argue that Schlafly is more on the pumpkin pie side. In fact, I would say this beer tastes strongly of rich pumpkin pie filling. There is also something in the taste that reminds me a bit of apple cider. The spices are great and really build as I was drinking. Despite the richness, this beer somehow managed not to be too heavy or cloying.
