Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

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.

Out of several Pumpkin/Spice beers I've tried, this is absolutely the best yet. Schafly has yet to produce a beer that wasn't outstanding.

A: Dark buckwheat honey, caramel-amber in appearance. Nice 2 finger egg white head. Dissipates in <5 min but nice. (4.75)

S: Subtle, but you get the whole pumpkin pie smell. Full graham cracker smell, savory cinnamon sweetness, nutty pumpkin squash. Herbaceous and green smelling, slight metallic. Nice lacing. (4.25/5)

M: Medium body, slick and slightly creamy. Moderate carbonation with lots of carbonation that makes it zesty and fuses the zesty, fruity with the savory and sweet spicing (4/5).

T: Cinnamon, clove, and allspice. Vanilla smooths the palate, and then earthy pumpkin comes in. Floral and herbal hops, subtle perfume. Nice spiciness, drying cinnamon and crusty flavor gives needed body (4.25/5)
