Wholesale case for $10. Not the best pumpkin beer but better than anything at that price.

Mostly clear orange/tan body, off-white head that fades entirely. Nose hits first with baking spices, in a restrained amount, followed closely by a sweet malt, caramel and biscuit-like, reminiscent of a marzenbier. Flavor subdues the spice in favor of the sweet malt, and a kind of pumpkin-essence element. Spices are mild, cinnamon and nutmeg, a bit of unwanted clove/bubblegum. Body is highly drinkable; appropriate carbonation, medium weight, maybe a bit slick.
I know pumpkin beers are allowed to be sweet, but that odd malt sweetness is not for me. I still appreciated the likeness to traditional autumn beers (Octoberfests), and also the restrained spices (too little is better than too much), so this ended up being a decent cooling-weather beer.

Lots of cinnamon and clove on the nose of this one. Pumpkin is present but balanced. Smooth easy drinker. One of the better pumpkin ales out there - spices are nicely crafted bad pumpkin is balanced.

This is an orange-amber color with a light haze and a white head. The head is thin. The aroma is great...pumpkin pie spice and malt. The taste is quite good as well....malt, spice, it's not unlike pie filling, but not cloying. Full in body, but not heavy. Good.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange with a small white head. The aroma matches a pumpkin pie! The taste is pure pumpkin and spice goodness. One of the best pumpkin ales I have had.

Just a "meh" pumpkin ale. They do a good thing by not going crazy with the pie spice. This beer is more of the pumpkin and less of the pie. Not really a dessert beer like Pumking by Southern Tier (which I like when I'm wanting sweet). Schlafly's is stilll the best all-around pumpkin ale out there---my benchmark.
