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.

Schlafly beers range from drain-pour to darn near best-in-catagory, and this is their magnum opus. THE pumpkin ale of the Midwest. With sweet tastes of cinnamon-dappled pumpkin pie and smells of nutmeg and baked goods, this pumpkin ale is one that cannot be missed when fall rolls around. I always manage to pick up a few cases throughout the fall, and I'm sure this fall won't be any different. Phenomenal.

Outstanding clean pumpkin ali with just the right amount of spice. All the aroma you would expect yet very light and refreshing. Pours a cloudy golden orange brown. Little to no head.
