The Schlafly Tap Room

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.

Served up at 50F in a Samuel Adams pint glass. Poured a Dark/Golden Copper, with a nice one finger cap, that quickly dissipated. At the nose, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, malt and cloves. First taste, medium body with a nice malt, pumpkin pie taste, that finish a little dry at the end. Probably because of the 8.0 % ALC. All in all, a well crafted pumpkin ale to ring in the start of the fall season. Cheers!

I am simply not a fan. I know so many people that rave about this pumpkin ale and compared to other varieties available it just falls short.

I'm not crazy on pumpkin ale, but if I had to choose one, this definitely takes the cake.

The best I've ever had as far as the style goes. The only 8%+ pumpkin beer I can knock a few back of without too much nutmeg or cinnamon messing up the palate. Highly recommended.
