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.

I absolutely love this beer. It has wonderful balance and a solid body with a rich taste! I feel that too many pumpkin beers have a very sugary taste but Schlafly nailed this one! I get a deep flavor of cinnamon, pumpkin, spice, clove and a very small tone of cranberry. It is layered wonderfully and is an absolute pleasure to drink!
