BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Fall

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.

The only thing this needs is a dollop of whipped cream on top! This is hands down the best pumpkin ale I have ever had. I think they took beer and pumpkin pie fillin to a vitamix, put it in a bottle and said "You're welcome!" ... thank you Schlafly!

I'm not big on pumpkin ales, but this one hits just the right note of subtle spice and clean hops. Perfect for Thanksgiving dinner.

Beautiful tarnished brass color with a thin pumpkin colored head. Smells like sweet sweet pumpkin pie, whip cream and all. Cinnamon and pumpkin dominate the nostrils. Vanilla cardamon and clove as well.

Rich creamy mouthfeel. Light effervescence. Pumpkin pie in a bottle. Big and rich yet remains refreshing on the spicy finish. Well blended. Simple put, one of the best pumpkin beers i've ever had. Genuinely tastes like a cool slice of pumpkin pie! I love it. Oh and also, for that 8% alcohol, you can't detect a thing.

Been waiting over a year to try this beer, and to no surprise, it is now my all time favorite beer.... To bad it is only available this time of year, oh well, it makes it that much better!

Appearance - dark Amber color, with hint of orange. Medium head on this beer.

Smell - Smells like a Pumpkin Pie!!

Taste - Taste is even better than it smells! You can tell this beer has a decent amount of alcohol, without the alcohol being overwhelming at all. The blend of spices is perfect, and can be tasted each sip.

Mouthfeel - Malty, with a great carbonation.

Overall - Again, I've been waiting for this beer all year, and it did NOT disappoint. If I could give this beer a higher rating than a 5 overall, I would.
